A sustainable enterprise real estate management platform for building performance optimization

October 2019
Gallery Switch Automation 1

Switch Automation take an enterprise IT approach to fixing broken buildings by helping portfolio managers evolve their disconnected, inefficient assets into technology-enabled smart buildings.

Switch Automation is a scalable smart building platform that helps enterprises visualize, analyze and optimize building and portfolio performance in real-time from any desktop, tablet or mobile device. It improves the grim statistics, poor air quality, high energy consumption, etc., by helping owners and operators of large real estate portfolios optimize their buildings’ performance. Most of today’s enterprise real estate portfolios have hundreds of properties run by a plethora of disparate solutions. Many problems go undetected and unresolved since a lack of interoperability prevents from gaining valuable and timely insights from the mountains of data collected by building systems, subsystems, devices and sensors. Switch Automation is a solution that contributes to global and individual welfare for a more sustainable future by regrouping data on "all in one" platform.
