Portrait of Patrice Bernhardt – Support & Back End Manager
« With the S4E team, energy is under control »
Who are you ?
Patrice Bernhardt, 44 years old, married with two children; I am a Physics and Chemistry engineer from the ENSCPB School in Bordeaux. I joined the S4E team in 2010 at the start of the activity to participate in the development of an innovative software in the photovoltaic field which marked the beginning of my Energysoft adventure!
Could you tell us about your job ?
As part of the S4E team based in Lorient, I am in charge of customer support and the photovoltaic business. As an experienced Java developer for database management, I have become a fine connaisseur of photovoltaic systems over the years. As an active contributor to the development of the software, for the last couple of years I have accompanied our professional clients for a personalised use of the software : from the field to the setting up of a supervision tool in their own entreprise. The objective is to help them become rapidly autonomous : Energysoft is in selfadministration which is a major advantage of our solution alongside the simplicity of its userfriendly interface. Customer satisfaction is our constant goal whoever they are (investors, owners, maintainers….) thanks to a telephone support, an incident management portal, a help function, remote training and online support….we make the user experience the best it can be.
What sort of colleague are you ?
I am enthusiastic, unifying and invested in my work.
What do you enjoy doing at the weekend ?
Making the most of my family, children grow up so quickly 😉 usually doing sporty activities and travelling. I surf regularly with my wife and two children as well as cycling: last Winter I participated in a six day cross country bike trip in the Sahara desert in Mauritania. Through sand dunes, canyons and tracks with breathtaking surroundings !
