    Our population is aging into “demographic time bombs.” The latest headlines constantly warn us of the stark reality of our aging dilemma. Fertility rates have dropped, and life expectancy has increased. Italy’s average age has surpassed 45 for the first time ever. A 2015 national consensus shows that Japan is currently the world’s oldest country, with almost 27% of its population over the age of 65.

    Certify acquires Captio, Europe’s leading independent expense management brand, to compete head to head with Concur

    PORTLAND, Maine, Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Certify, the largest independent provider of expense management software, announces the acquisition of Captio, a leading expense provider in Europe.  The acquisition is Certify’s first outside of North America and its most significant international venture to date. The deal allows Certify to offer its expense management products for large, midsize and SMB customers throughout Europe and specifically in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy, where Captio has a strong customer base and a growing presence. The combined company now has over 10,000 customers in over 90 countries.Captio is based in Spain and was founded in 2012 by Joel Vicient, Dan Moser, Joaquim Segura and Lluís Claramonte. Captio offers an end to end cloud-based expense management platform with robust mobile capabilities and the ability to comply with specific country-based taxation requirements. Vicient and Captio’s in-country managers will join Certify’s leadership team.

    “This is an exciting day for Captio and its customers,” says Vicient. “For six years we’ve worked very hard to create a tool that makes it easier for business travelers to record their expenses and for companies to manage those expenses and simplify reimbursement. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made and the success of our customers. Aligning with Certify will allow us to expand our product further, enhance support to existing customers, and secure new customers while accelerating our plans for growth.”

    The combined company will continue working on the current product lines and serving existing customers with an improved service offering taking advantage of the synergies within the group.

    “Without a doubt it is great news for Captio and also for its customers,” says José Miguel López, Associate Director AMS Finance at Coca-Cola European Partners Iberia. “We are sure that in the short term we will see great improvements in the value we get from their product and the combined partnership.”

    Certify’s decision to purchase Captio is the latest move in a concerted effort by the company to grow its presence outside North America. In 2017, Certify expanded its relationship with UK-based Sage Software to provide enhanced product integrations and services to shared customers. Earlier this year, Certify announced the formation of a new integration with Western Union to provide international business payment capabilities to Certify customers with operations outside the US.

    “Captio has captured significant market share in Europe through a combination of great technology, first-class customer service and skilled leadership,” says Robert Neveu, President and CEO of Certify. “They have a strong and growing customer base, and a great reputation. We are excited to bring them into the Certify family, and we look forward to working with Joel and his team to build the Certify brand throughout Europe.”

    International Innovator in “Floatovoltaic” Technology Enables 252kW Clean Energy Project by Floating 720 Solar Panels on Kelseyville Wastewater Treatment PondKELSEYVILLE, Calif., Sept. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ciel & Terre USA (www.ciel-et-terre.net), innovators in floating solar power systems, today announced completion of a new 252 kW floating photovoltaic power system for the Lake County Special Districts on behalf of Kelseyville County Waterworks Dist. #3 in partnership with local contractor North Coast Solar. Financed by a municipal lease, the Ciel & Terre® Hydrelio solar power system is being floated on a man-made wastewater treatment pond in Kelseyville and is expected to produce up to 1,650 kWh in its first year.

    This is the first public floating solar power system installed in California. The installation itself consists of 720 floating solar panels mounted together and delivering electrical power safely to shore using solar optimizers provided by SolarEdge to maximize inverter output. The municipal lease for the installation gives the county positive cash flow starting the first year, so no cash investment was required to pay for the system. Once the Kelseyville solar installation proves successful, the Lake County Special District is considering installing additional floating solar power systems around the county.

    “We are excited to be able to take advantage of clean energy using Ciel & Terre’s floating solar systems,” said Jan Coppinger, Special Districts Administrator for Lake County. “We didn’t have available land or rooftop space suitable for this project, but our wastewater treatment pond had enough surface area to accommodate a sizable solar system. Floating is a great way to control algae growth in the pond at the same time we generate virtually free energy. All costs to provide utilities continue to increase, which forces Special Districts to seek out and implement any means possible to reduce future costs. This floating solar system will result in significant savings in future years.”

    Floating solar is an ideal solution for any utility district since it generates clean energy at the same time it provides other water conservation benefits. Floating a solar array on man-made bodies of water improves energy production by keeping the solar system cooler. At the same time it reduces evaporation, controls algae growth, and reduces water movement to minimize bank erosion. It also makes optimal use of pond surfaces, providing clean solar energy without committing expensive real estate or requiring rooftop installations.

    “Municipal water districts, wineries, farms, and others want to adopt solar but they don’t want to commit land that could be used for other purposes,” said Eva Pauly-Bowles, Representative Director for Ciel & Terre USA, Inc. “Installing floating solar systems gives them ready access to green energy while helping them manage their water resources. We expect we will see more demand for floating solar systems, especially in light of California’s commitment to produce only carbon-free electricity by 2045.”

    The Kelseyville project is only one of four floating solar power installations being completed this summer using the patented Ciel & Terre® Hydrelio system in Q3 2018 delivering 5.3 MW.

    *About Ciel & Terre*
    Established in 2006 as a renewable Independent Power Producer (IPP), Ciel & Terre has been fully devoted to floating solar PV since 2011. The French company pioneered Hydrelio®, the first specific and industrialized system to make solar panels float on water, with criteria such as cost-effectiveness, safety, longevity, resistance to winds and waves, simplicity, drinking water compliance, and optimized electrical yield.

    Ciel & Terre has floating solar installations in Japan, Korea, China, UK, France, Brazil, Singapore, Malaysia, Italy, Taiwan as well as the United States. The company has its United States headquarters in Petaluma, California.
