Emerson Climate Technologies Introduces New Facility Control Platform for Small Format Retail Facilities
Site Supervisor enables monitoring and control of HVAC, refrigeration and lighting systems for convenience stores and small format retailers
St. Louis, September 6, 2016
– Emerson Climate Technologies Retail Solutions Inc., a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), introduces Site Supervisor
, a simple, powerful facility control platform to optimize HVAC, refrigeration, lighting and other critical equipment. Site Supervisor is the newest in Emerson’s product portfolio of facility management solutions. The first release of Site Supervisor includes units for use in convenience stores, pharmacies, chained foodservice, mixed retail and commercial buildings.
When connected to major building systems and equipment, Site Supervisor controls conditions and provides status. Settings are easily adjustable to maximize performance while collecting and analyzing data. If conditions change or systems operate outside of normal parameters, priority alerts are generated for simple recognition that action may be needed. With these insights, store managers can quickly respond to potential system issues that could impact the customer experience and food safety. Retailers can easily navigate the Site Supervisor platform through a simple, intuitive user interface on a wall-mounted display, PC or mobile devices. Facility data can be securely accessed locally, on a network or through the Emerson cloud.
“It can be challenging for small format retailers to provide fresh, quality food while balancing energy use and shopper comfort,” said Reggie O’Donoghue, director of product management for Emerson Climate Technologies Retail Solutions. “Site Supervisor offers the visibility and control retailers need to optimize facility systems and store equipment that impact the shopper experience -- from refrigeration and lighting to heating and cooling.”
Optimized for small format retail stores, Site Supervisor provides store managers with local access to easily view current facility conditions. Enterprise-level visibility is also offered for corporate sites and service technicians to remotely monitor and quickly make changes to optimize operations. When needed, authorized users can easily override key functions, such as adjusting lighting system schedules.
Retailers can seamlessly connect Site Supervisor with Emerson’s ProAct™ Services
for a complete enterprise-wide solution. ProAct Services offer around-the-clock remote monitoring for visibility and control across an entire chain of stores. Insights from real-time facility data can be leveraged to diagnose alarms, resolve problems and maintain systems. HVAC, refrigeration and lighting settings can be automatically monitored across a chain, reducing costs and errors associated with manual intervention at individual sites. With ProAct Services, many issues can be resolved remotely from one central location, decreasing unnecessary service calls and reducing maintenance costs.
