"The acquisition of new hardware and software can be implemented quickly and requires only minimal interdisciplinary expertise. However, a comprehensive inventory analysis of the complete infrastructure is a much more complex challenge. Since true energy efficiency can only be achieved if the exact consumption is analyzed and inefficient systems and processes are uncovered and optimized, we were looking for a holistic solution.
While searching for specific Industry 4.0 as well as energy management solutions for our operation, I came across the team of experts at BS-Systeme. During a very nice exchange, they were even able to help me with a problem with our CEP server and I also had more comprehensive documentation sent directly to me about their new energy management software Eco²lot. We were particularly interested in the comprehensive EnergyApps, the individual support including training, as well as the attractive funding opportunity. After we discussed this in the team with our energy manager and purchaser, Andreas Babel took the time to answer all our questions.
At the moment, we are in the process of digitizing our entire operational process flows via the energy management software and presenting them in an easily understandable way. The ancillary process data was previously researched at great expense from e-mail inboxes, shift schedules or company diaries. Today, we store all of this data centrally with Eco²lot. This gives the departments a much better understanding of each other's work and challenges.
Even after almost 3 months with Eco²lot, I enjoy working with it every day and I have to say, Eco²lot is not an off-the-shelf product, but a flexible and customizable energy management software that enables a systematic approach taking into account availability and sustainability aspects."
