Infor EAM is comprised of sub-meters to monitor energy use, Echelon’s SmartServers to track and log energy data, and Infor’s software solution. Core benefits of the collaboration include collecting data for utilization and energy consumption; identifying major equipment consuming energy; optimizing consumption across equipment; comparative analyses of equipment lines and operating procedures; near real-time visibility to energy consumption; and facilitating consumer behavioral change.
Mitch Rowe, Infor’s VP and general manager of Global EAM Sales, says, “Our collaboration with Echelon helps us bring a solution to market on a common platform that serves our global business. Infor EAM Asset Sustainability Edition looks at the actual efficiency of equipment as a function of energy use. Doing so identifies hidden maintenance related costs that can result in losses in the tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. This enables companies to become greener while dramatically lowering their cost of doing business.”
Anders Axelsson, Echelon’s senior vice president of commercial markets, notes, “Infor’s innovative use of energy data shows one of the many strengths of Echelon energy control networking. Our customers continue to leverage the power of our technology in innovative and even tangential ways that deliver tremendous value to end-users. Infor’s collaboration with us shows that when it comes to energy, everything is connected and often interdependent, and we believe that energy control networks are the key to leveraging the interdependencies for reducing cost, managing energy, and delivering value to end-users.”
