Making the most out of your Energy Manager software: The power of Data Automation

Any effective decarbonisation and energy efficiency efforts are built on data.

Taking a proactive approach to your data allows you to make more informed energy management decisions. Accurate and current data allows you to monitor and analyse your organisation’s consumption more accurately and efficiently.

Efficient and accurate monitoring and analysis on the other hand allows inefficiencies and cost savings to be pinpointed and pursued, while improving your organisation’s carbon management on the way towards Net-Zero.

Taking a step further and automating your data collection allows you to streamline your operations, and enhance accuracy while unlocking valuable insights from your data.

SystemsLink has the capability to receive and automatically import metered consumption information from all major Data Collectors, Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) Providers, BEMS and Suppliers across all utilities.

How it Works

Data Collection Set-Up: Send a request to your suppliers or data collectors that you would like them to send the data to your system directly to streamline the collection process. Confirm the format and transfer method: File Transfer Protocol (FTP), email, or web service.

Automated Data Transfer: Once set up, SystemsLink collects this data, and it is automatically downloaded to your software package as soon as it becomes available. This could be daily.

Instant Accessibility: The data becomes instantly available for reporting and updating dashboards with up-to-date information.

Benefits: With data automation set up, you can benefit from other Energy Manager features such as Smart Spaces, invoice validation, improved reporting outputs, and dashboards.

These features complement automated data collection, providing comprehensive tools for optimising energy usage and ultimately helping you get the most out of your software.
