Strengths

GPM PV+ is an analytical tool. All data is managed in real time and users can work simultaneously with different series of data to compare them and configure complex conditions to alert in case of low production or incidence. Data can be analyzed not only from a production view, but also from an accounting view or environmental-friendly view. Finally, GPM PV+ can be connected with other ERP software to complement it.

Weaknesses

This software should be used to manage existing renewable energy plants, not to plan them.
