John Casey, the Director of National Accounts at ENTOUCH, sheds light on the hidden value of EMS (energy management systems) beyond optimizing air conditioning and lighting. Many people may need to realize that leading EMS solutions lay the foundation for greater IoT and smart building capabilities, all while being funded by the same energy savings at their core.

“One of our larger quick-service restaurants customers asked us to help them create greater visibility of the usage of their fryer equipment,” Casey said. “We extended our platform to do so and provided them with insights showing that their equipment off hours and in unauthorized ways, and that helped them provide greater management control over their many sites.”

Energy management systems don’t have to be a secret. Unlocking the hidden value of EMS could prove beneficial in many ways.
