Schneider Electric optimises FM insights with new solution
Energy management and automation specialist Schneider Electric has launched Facility Insights, a new cloud based and managed services solution that allows facility managers and building owners to analyse and manage their facility’s data, with the help of the company’s certified EcoXperts.
Designed to make operations more efficient for the entire lifespan of a building solution, Facility Insights can optimise energy consumption and spending and help occupants manage their Opex more effectively.
The solution uses simple dashboards and displays energy usage for specific building areas, providing you with reports and in-depth analysis of the building’s performance, as well as recommendations on ways to improve energy usage.
“To implement the solution, Schneider Electric leverages the expertise of our certified EcoXperts,” Clipsal and Schneider Electric Partner Business operational marketing manager Samuel Coupel says.
“The EcoXperts are there to maximise your ROI by customising the solution to suit your facility requirements, so you can determine performance targets, track energy consumption and achieve long-term savings.”
There are three levels of service available, ranging from ‘View’ with simple dashboards and monthly performance reports, through to ‘Improve’, which details in a monthly performance report, action items to enhance maintenance and energy management, including recommendations and action plans.
A localised feature for the Australian market is the NABERS widget, which ensures a building’s performance is tracked and benchmarked against other surrounding buildings.
“Facility Insights addresses the needs of business owners and facility managers by offering them an easy to access insight into their business’ energy usage, along with better visibility of operating costs and efficiencies,” Coupel adds.
