Prevent unplanned maintenance disruptions at your stores with data analytics

Building Demographics

  • Large portfolio of small sized buildings
  • Average floor area: approx. 100 – 1,000 m2
  • No centralized oversight or control of plant equipment


  • Maintenance costs for HVAC+R are high and business disruption due to unplanned maintenance needs to be managed to zero
  • No central system to monitor compressors or plant performance
  • Need to ensure equipment is set to the right conditions to maintain food safety and reduce risk of equipment failure
  • Limited to no support on site to triage issues with equipment


  • 3-7 IoT sensors deployed per store to monitor HVAC+R, occupancy, lighting levels, air circulation, and humidity
  • 1 gateway to receive and transmit sensor data to the cloud
  • Asset Performance Monitoring software module to visualize data and extract insights


  • Refrigerators not set to correct temperature – increasing risk of food spoilage
  • HVAC operating out-of-hours (or when not occupied)
  • Lighting operating out-of-hours (or when not occupied)
  • Facility or space occupied out-of-hours
  • HVAC start time not optimized (comfort conditions being achieved well before occupancy)
  • HVAC discharge temperature fluctuating (cycling between heating and cooling modes)
  • Comfort set-point too low or high (HVAC working harder than required)
  • Comfort out of range (HVAC not able to achieve comfort conditions)


  • Reduce disruptions to business operations due to equipment failures
  • Significant savings realized in labor, energy and equipment costs
  • Reduce reliance on outside contractors to investigate and diagnose issues
  • Enable greater transparency and control over equipment performance, ensuring optimal conditions for food
