  • OPERATIONAL IMPACT
  • Impact #1
    [Efficiency Improvement - Maintenance]
    Custodial crews know when a soap dispenser is getting low on soap (approximately 800 pumps), instead of manually inspecting. They also know the foot traffic for particular restrooms. Servicing
    restrooms based on specific use vs. scheduling or manually inspecting them.
    Impact #2
    [Efficiency Improvement - Compliance]
    Customers in the food industry (restaurants, grocery stores) improve employee hygiene compliance by knowing how much soap/sanitizer is being used by employees.
    Impact #3
    [Cost Reduction - Labor]
    When dispensers jointly reach a number of ‘pumps’, a new order of soap can be made to restock a facility’s inventory, eliminating human involvement and reducing man-hours.
  • QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
  • USE CASES
  • Building Energy Management
    Building energy management systems (BEMS) provide real-time remote monitoring and integrated control of a wide range of connected systems, allowing modes of operation, energy use, and environmental conditions to be monitored and modified based on hours of operation, occupancy, or other variables to optimise efficiency and comfort. Building energy management systems can also trigger alarms, in some cases predicting problems and informing maintenance programmes. They maintain records of historical performance to enable benchmarking of performance against other buildings or across time and may help automate report writing. BEMS are often integrated with building automation and control (BAC) systems, which have a broaded scope of operations.
