As businesses and industry increasingly feel the heat from energy-related challenges with rising utility costs and new legislation such as ESOS on the horizon, energy monitoring is now vital in unlocking potentials in savings, efficiency and achieving compliance.
With Optimal Monitoring’s cloud-based energy and waste reporting software, organisations are equipped with all the information they need to reduce waste, carbon consumption and operating costs enabling them to meet their corporate and social responsibilities.
The Optimal Monitoring Carbon Management Platform is already used at over 1,500 locations and processing data from over 27,000 data points in real time for private and public sector companies.
This solution stands out in the sector. Optimal provides accurate and highly efficient monitoring of data, a bespoke environmental reporting platform and software tools that are user-friendly. With Optimal, businesses free up time for action rather than administration and through increased energy awareness, pinpoint areas for energy savings, control operating expenditure and make direct financial gains.
Optimal Monitoring’s cloud based software solution provides customers with automated monitoring and collection of data from many disparate sources. Aggregated and uploaded on to the Optimal Platform, data is instantly and readily available as operational, actionable information encompassing all things utility and waste related.
The key to Optimal Monitoring’s platform is found in the simplicity of use and client-led focus. Information is delivered automatically by email at a schedule to suit, represented as cost, carbon and consumption and measured against various target metrics, in any number of user-selected formats. Additional information can be added such as consumables and travel. Users are in control – with the ability to push relevant information to the right person in the right format at the right time.
Optimal is widely acknowledged as providing software that is customer-friendly with ease of use and accessibility being a prime focus. Customers can view clear, real-time information on carbon and energy, waste and cost, via push reports and dashboard displays. A simple user-interface allows the collection of data to be tailored to not just the business but also the individuals within the business, whatever the size or industry. Energy resources across one site or many can be recorded, or data targeted to a specific room or piece of machinery. Users can combine this information with operational data to monitor for example, production efficiency and energy per person.
The Optimal Monitoring Software solution benefits customers by allowing them to view real time operational energy data and to compare and contrast information, in order to highlight areas of inefficiency and misuse. Customers can address energy wastage and inappropriate expenditure across the board whether from lights or water usage, heating systems or machinery and take remedial action with the additional reassurance of having automatic alarms in place for power or equipment failure.  Companies can encourage behavioural change, incentivise and educate based on real and accurate information and provide clear, measurable goals to reduce the corporate carbon footprint.
Optimal Monitoring offers a cost effective, easy to install and user-friendly energy saving solution.  With in-depth industry experience and understanding, they work with clients across the board from blue chip companies and manufacturers to school, hospitals and councils. Optimal works with its business partners to offer a professional and dedicated service with high-level support and advice offered at every stage.
