EcoEnergy Insights Introduces AI Assistant, Helping Retailers to Reduce Building Maintenance Costs and Improve Energy Savings

EcoEnergy Insights

Atlanta, GA, Oct 25, 2021 EcoEnergy Insights a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) enabled services, today announced that it has introduced the AI assistant feature for the CORTIX™ platform. The CORTIX platform is an AI and IoT platform that is helping retailers reduce maintenance costs and realize significant energy savings across tens of thousands of locations. Its AI assistant showcases prescriptive recommendations in natural language in order to help facility managers stay ahead of maintenance and address operational problems before they occur. EnoEnergy Insights is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

Traditionally, energy maintenance information is provided in dashboards filled with graphs and charts, with facility teams becoming overwhelmed by raw data. The AI assistant remedies this challenge, providing a single screen to view budding problems and the corrective action to be taken in natural language, so users can easily understand what needs to be done. Users simply read the recommendation and then use the platform itself to prioritize and plan actions across the retailer’s building network, which could range from a few hundred to thousands of stores. The CORTIX platform analyzes data from multiple sources, such as the equipment, weather and work done during previous technician visits.

For a leading retailer with 1,976 connected stores in North America, the CORTIX platform enabled energy savings of over 15%, while helping maintain thermal compliance above 94% in the stores and reducing maintenance costs by 16%.

“The CORTIX platform AI assistant feature helps facility managers save time, effort and costs with clear prescriptive recommendations that ensure optimum equipment performance,” says Rajender Beniwal, General Manager, North America, EcoEnergy Insights. “It will alert users with accurate predictions of likely problems, advise them with data-driven recommendations to solve challenges and help them prioritize those actions. The feature will make facility management simpler and easier. ”

The CORTIX platform was named the “Best Predictive Analytics Platform” at the 2021 AI Breathrough awards program earlier this year, for breaking through the market by empowering facility managers with a proven AI platform that enables them to meet their objectives.

Over a two-year period, the CORTIX platform has also helped reduce total maintenance visits for rooftop units by over 30% at 700 North American locations for a big-box retailer through proactive condition-based repair recommendations. In addition, CORTIX enabled EcoEnergy Insights to proactively identify and remotely resolve over 92% of HVAC and lighting problems for a big-box retailer with over 1,000 locations in North America.
