Challenges

Maintaining temperatures and oxygen levels within MCCIA’s offices accounts for a major chunk of operational costs. However, the MCCIA was unable to control energy usage in their offices. They soon realized that these issues needed to be addressed as soon as possible.

A closer look at the issues identified the following challenges.

Challenges

Employee Complaints of Cold and Hot spots

The MCCIA offices were unable to maintain consistent temperatures across the office. As a result, some areas got too hot while others were too cold. The variation in temperatures made employees uncomfortable and affected their productivity. As a result, the HR teams were swamped with complaints about hot and cold spots.

Energy Wastage and High Bills

Improper facility management led to excessive energy usage and wastage. As the size of the office increased, so did the amount of energy lost. This was the result of multiple factors including manual management of the system, improper sized equipment, poor installation, etc. Energy wastage also translated to high monthly electricity bills.

Lack of transparency and control over usage

The MCCIA office HVAC systems were difficult to control. The organization could not control the amount of energy being used to maintain airflow and temperatures within the office. This combined with the high amounts of energy being wasted affected transparency in billing. The lack of control also kept the organization from being able to take effective steps towards reducing electricity consumption.

Difficulty managing O2 level at crowd sitting

People working with the MCCIA spent a large part of the day in the offices. In an effort to keep them comfortable, the spaces were centrally air-conditioned. However, the current HVAC systems did not move air around efficiently which led to lower than normal oxygen levels especially in areas with a higher density of people.

Solutions

Given the way energy costs affected the MCCIA’s monthly outgoing expenses, the organization soon realized that the issues they were facing needed to be addressed at the earliest. In their search for a technology partner, Byrny emerged as the ideal Byrny’s solutions helped the organization control its energy usage, reduced costs and kept employees comfortable to improve their productivity.

Solutions

Advanced automation of HVAC & Lighting Systems

Byrny automated the HVAC and lighting systems in consideration with a number of real-time factors such as occupancy as well as external factors such as location and weather forecasts. This helped the organization avoid hot and cold spots in their offices and manage energy consumption.

Real-time Energy Monitoring & Control over bills

By installing sensors across the MCCIA offices, Byrny was able to create a system through which the organization could get an overview of real-time temperatures in the office. The system allowed them to modulate temperatures based on input from these sensors and maintain the most optimal temperatures for employee comfort and productivity.

Real-time consumption dashboards and alerts

Bynry developed a user-friendly digital platform and dashboard for the organization to view and monitor real-time energy consumption. When the energy consumption increased above a pre-determined level, an alert was sent out to allow the organization’s technicians to make the necessary checks and changes. As a result, employee complaints could be addressed faster and more efficiently.

O2 level regulation and maintenance

The automated HVAC systems improved airflow within the offices. Though the system could not change the composition of air, by circulating it efficiently with fresh air, the HVAC systems were able to improve oxygen levels while reducing carbon dioxide levels. As a result, people were more alert and productivity increased.

Results

After using Bynry's automated digital solutions BESL could bolster its overall operational efficiency and reduce commercial loss by 30%

Solutions

Accurate Billing

By employing Bynry's automation technology, BESL could reduce average high billing by 15%.

Increased Efficiency

Streamlining of human resources and optimization of distribution network improved by 30%.

Human Resource Streamlining

90% of the human resources in BESL were trained and aligned to the new technology within 60 days.

Efficient Field Staff

From around 50 meter reading to 150-200 meter readings a day, the filed force could improve their performance drastically.

Improved Accuracy

BESL could achieve 100% accuracy inmeter data as well as transparency in activities related to billing.

Accurate Meter Data

The solution enabled the installation of metersat the right address and GPS co-ordinates were captured and tagged. The data could be viewed real-time for future use.

Impact

Improved oxygen levels and energy savings

As a result of automating the HVAC and lighting systems, the MCCIA offices noted a significant improvement in their energy usage. The oxygen levels within the offices increased and as a result, productivity also improved.
