Why is a Solution Necessary?
Facilities Managers and Public Works professionals around the world are under increasing pressure to provide a well-maintained building, while responding to increased fiscal pressures and increasing regulatory requirements. In order to better manage their building and equipment, these professionals need to understand:

  • What is the overall condition of my building infrastructure?

  • Where should I focus my efforts to reduce energy and operating costs?

  • Am I in compliance with environmental regulations?

  • How can I communicate critical facilities information between departments?

  • Am I meeting health, safety and environmental standards?

  • Are all my building systems working in concert together?


Many of the tools needed to gather this information are already in place. Buildings are no longer just concrete, steel and glass structures. They are complex assets. Most new buildings have a Building Management Systems (BMS) to control temperature, monitor security, control lighting and monitor the fire detection and suppression systems.

However, these BMS systems are not connected and don’t share information. Different BMS manufacturers have designed their tools to use different programming languages to monitor their systems. Perhaps the most daunting challenge is the massive volume of data these systems generate. The challenge is taking all this data from multiple systems or even the same system and turning it into actionable solutions. That’s where we can help.
