KAIZEN – COPPERTREE ANALYTICS
CopperTree Analytics is the developer of Kaizen, a powerful data analytics and ongoing commissioning tool that works in conjunction with the building automation and metering systems. Kaizen continuously monitors a building’s HVAC equipment performance and energy consumption, measuring it against optimal performance guidelines and its own baseline, alerting the user if a fault is detected or if performance is sub-optimal.
Our Kaizen software continuously analyses building systems so the end user knows the moment something is wrong. Our automated Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) feature pinpoints where faults are occurring within a building, allowing the user to take resolving action immediately and often remotely, saving time and valuable resources. Kaizen also has a built in EMIS platform that allows the user to execute Measurement & Verification (M&V) as well as Monitoring, Targeting & Reporting (MT&R), and facilitate the measurement of energy performance initiatives. The complementary money-saving features of FDD combined with the energy management and reporting of EMIS makes Kaizen an ideal one-stop analytics product, suitable for both short- and long-term energy performance programs. Regular reports highlighting the inefficiencies and issues are generated by Kaizen, and can be distributed to your building manager, energy manager, energy consultant, or anyone else who requires the information automatically.
SMART ACCESS CYLINDER MANAGEMENT & GAS2GO APP – KIRBY
The Kirby Smart@ccess Cylinder Management Gas2Go APP is the first cylinder management app of its kind to include leak test alerts, which notify users when their refrigerant cylinders are due for leak testing. As we progress through the HFC refrigerant phase-down, tools such as this which alert business owners of leak test requirements and improved tracking are imperative to compliance reporting and minimising environmental impact.
This dynamic tool provides benefits to companies of all sizes managing their cylinder fleet, minimising relative risk in their business. As the APP seamlessly integrates with the web platform, service managers can also benefit from the detail that is entered by technicians making the platform scalable. The system now suits everyone from a sole trader through to larger organisations with any number of technicians in the field.
The recent developments made to the Smart@ccess Project Tools platform (Projects 2.0) allow users to build large multi-systems within a single project, create multiple loads within a single system and have easier access to the heat load calculator through the quick selection functionality.
As a complete customer portal and cylinder management tool, Kirby Smart@ccess remains unsurpassed within the HVACR industry. The program has been on a consistent path of development and feature enhancement to maximise its benefits and useability and remain unique in a competitive digital market.
BUENO PLATFORM – BUENO
Through the application of data science principles and machine learning, Bueno’s platform enables improved operations, maintenance and sustainability outcomes for buildings. The platform allows users to take a data driven approach to support the operation of buildings by codifying engineering knowledge and applying it to the management of assets at scale.
The platform has been applied to more than 1,700 buildings in 6 countries. It is in use by local household names such as Woolworths, Crown Casino, Star Casino, MIRVAC, DEXUS, Vicinity and Westfield as well as internationally by Intel (at their newest smart campus in Bangalore), the Canadian Federal Government and Canadian Department of Defence.
