Emerson Retail Solutions Launches New Site Administration Software Capabilities

Site Manager Software Simplifies Enterprise Management

ST. LOUIS, Nov 4, 2010 – Today Emerson Retail Solutions, a subsidiary of Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., released a new version of its Site Manager software with significant performance and usability enhancements.  Through centralized data aggregation, Site Manager enables retailers to broadcast enterprise-wide schedule changes, back-up or restore controller settings from its popular line of facility controllers, update firmware and view system alarms and information remotely.

In this release, Site Manager users will have the ability to add and modify applications remotely to save time and increase maintenance productivity.  Utilizing web technology, users can manage the same controller functions as an on-site contractor, thereby minimizing the need for maintenance dispatches.  Further, long term data storage is now easier to maintain with a new feature that allows users to automate database compression processes and ensure critical information is stored securely.

“This release incorporates several new approaches to remote site management that can help retailers manage their stores better,” said Magda Ramos, product manager at Emerson Retail Solutions.  “Several customer requested enhancements have also been implemented, making the product faster to configure and easier to use.”

Site Manager also allows operators to adjust new time or lighting schedules automatically for an individual site, a specific region, or all connected locations.  This is particularly valuable for retailers with many stores that change operating hours seasonally or for special events.  Automatically broadcasting these setpoints greatly reduces the time and money a retailer invests when adjusting their operating schedules.
