At Blue Pillar, we’ve found that creating a close partnership between IT managers and the energy/facility department is key to creating a successful Energy IoT program. These two groups form a team that works to connect every energy asset the business, hospital, or data center may have into a singular, centralized platform.
Working with companies that have numerous facilities throughout the United States, we often get asked the question, “How can I get better, high-level visibility into all of our energy usage throughout our entire corporate footprint?” The answer is something we call “Centralized Facility Management.” Blue Pillar has become one of the leaders of Centralized Facility Management because we start with a template-driven approach that unlocks the power of local connectivity across multiple sites through our Aurora® Energy Network of Things™ platform. The platform has been used to connect and collect information from all of the energy assets at local facilities and bring them to a central, single corporate interface for real-time monitoring and control of Energy Things in every building connected. To get started, check out these simple assessment questions to see if a Centralized Facilities Management approach is right for your organization.
In the first and second posts in this series, we reviewed how disruptive technologies are making it possible for facility and energy managers to connect to, and collect and control data from, energy assets. In this third installment of the five-part series, we take a step back and examine another disruptive trend that allows facility and energy managers to take a new level of energy control to their organization.
Blue Pillar has been making headlines for our incredible suite of products and hard-working employees, and I could not be more proud of our recent accolades. The Aurora® platform was named Product of the Year by Energy Manager Today and earned both Gold and Silver Golden Bridge Awards as an Energy Industry Innovation of the Year. Additionally, Deloitte recognized Blue Pillar as a Technology Fast 500™ company listed as the 15th fastest growing energy tech company emerging on the list in our inaugural year.
