ST. LOUIS, June 12, 2009 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today announced its new Site Manager v1.6 software. This software enables retailers to broadcast enterprise-wide schedule changes, back-up and restore controller settings from its popular line of facility controllers, update firmware and view system alarms and information. In addition to these capabilities, the software also has the added ability to aggregate data from across an enterprise where E2 series controllers are installed.
Site Manager software collects data from E2 facility management systems installed in retail stores and maintains this operational data on a single database. This software also allows operators to adjust new time or lighting schedules for an individual site, a specific region or all connected locations using the broadcast function. This is particularly valuable for large retailers with many stores that change operating hours seasonally or for special events. By automatically broadcasting setpoint changes with Site Manager software, retailers can greatly reduce the time and expense associated with site level setpoint changes across the enterprise.
By utilizing web technologies, Site Manager software allows users to manage user access at the enterprise level and view site information using a standard web browser. Password protection and customized user groups enable retailers to assign capabilities to individual or groups of users, thereby enhancing operational security. With Site Manager software, retailers no longer have to install multiple instances of software on individual PCs. This eliminates the need to track and manage software versions that support different controller firmware releases.
