We have now access to minute-by-minute remote data at the sites. This not only aids our contractors with fault diagnosis but also helps us to provide cost evidence to end users. I have data from profilers to check electricity submeter data, especially when queried by clients. We have occupancy records to assist us fine tuning on and off periods for HVAC.
All in all, this is the best value programme we have run in terms of ROI and payback terms. It provides the best value analytics I have found and is so flexible for plant type, configuration or any other parameter I could ever need.
The installation has helped the college moderate its energy consumption through the provision of efficient control and monitoring systems.
We have been delighted with the partnership arrangement and it made obtaining ISO50001 accreditation far more attainable. I only wish we had discovered this solution sooner.

"It is unusual in this day and age to find the continuity and consistency of service over 14 years now that we have been provided with by SmarterDM. I particularly appreciate the fact that I can still deal with the same team at SmarterDM who flew out to our facility at Moa Point in New Zealand in April 2000, listened to what we were trying to achieve and designed a solution for remote data collection, collation and web-based presentation which we and our suppliers have been using ever since."
SmarterDM has an innovative approach to energy demand management. They are the only company we came across which offered an integrated hardware and software solution which also utilised data from our existing hardware and physical equipment. By linking all energy and maintenance data in a single portal, the SmarterEDM solution has not only driven significant energy cost reduction but also allowed us to reduce maintenance charges across the estate through changing from a time-based maintenance regime too much more of a PPM maintenance strategy.
