85% of facility managers oversee more than one physical location and many oversee dozens over vast regions. Facility teams are generally responsible for cutting building costs and reducing energy use, but doing so is nearly impossible without direct access to energy usage data and the right set of energy reduction tools.

Building automation technology can simplify building data and help facility teams make smart energy usage decisions based on actual building trends and across multiple locations.
