Time to Get Your House in Order

Building Architecture

March means spring is almost here. It’s time to get your house in order.

Looking from from between the water sensitive areas in your data closet stacks, or from compressor motors in HVAC and refrigeration systems after a cold winter, changing seasons means corporate facilities need to be managed a little differently.

That said Utah slopes are still powder fresh, so let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

The House

The story begins with that dear old house of yours. It’s been with you for a long time, but its always shiny in your mind. Let’s just say you’re deeply invested in the longevity and integrity of your house.

Could be you’re in corporate facilities management for a large corporation, like BD Medical. You know cleaning house ahead of time often means a healthier bottom line in terms of workforce, equipment, environment, and overall systems efficiency.

As an owner, you maintain on-site production, food services and shipping operations. From server rooms to processing, , amenities, services and storage, everything is company-owned. Efficiency and cost-savings are up to you, the existing systems in place, and your in-house facilities team.

The Frustration

Fine-tuned coordination is a must because you manage the details directly rather than farming them out. This is the essential difference between you and the property manager on Main Street. As a corporate owner, you’re constantly in the business of home improvement, so you ask, what’s today’s answer that will get me through the coming fiscal decade?

When it comes to corporate facility management, unexpected repairs resulting from water or temperature damages, energy costs, and maintaining secure building and data access are common sources of frustration.

The Internet of Things (IoT ) shows, these frustrations are about to end.

The Order

Here’s order for tomorrow.

We hear much about the ‘company fight’ for tech to optimize budget and performance. But are ‘snap’ solutions available? Are the rumors about IoT for real?

Emphatically, yes. The Internet of Things can turn every inch of your responsibility into smarter, cost-saving facility management solutions that are closer than you might think. Applied, the Internet of Things uses data from processes, systems and equipment to create efficiency, which translates into reduced cost and better all-round performance.

Carrier reported studies by the U.S. Department of Energy indicate measures, like remote monitoring solutions can reduce maintenance costs by as much as 30 percent, and eliminate breakdowns by nearly 75 percent. Numbers like these add up quickly.

Learn more about huge cost-saving benefits in remote monitoring solutions for facility management in our freshly minted Whitepaperfrom Monnit, the leader in low-cost, remote monitoring solutions.

Surpassing Convenience in Your C Stores

Surpass convenience in your C store

As of December 31, 2016, the Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing (NACS) Fact Sheets tells us the U.S. convenience store count increased to a record 154,535 stores, a 0.2 percent increase (340 stores) from the year prior, according to the latest NACS/Nielsen Convenience Industry Store Count.

Food-Forward 

Here is the context. You’re a C Store chain owner, which means you know about credit card fees and time-consuming debit holds for unpaid fuel bills. You’re in the business of providing quality goods in the least amount of time at a fair price.

A word on surpassing C Store values in the premium food game from Quick-service and Fast-Casual Restaurant News (QSR) asks: Is your C Store a threat to restaurants? 

This has you now thinking ‘food-forward,’ after reading a comment from NPD Group food-service industry analyst, Bonnie Riggs, “C Stores are here to stay as a competitor to quick-service restaurants.”

C Stores have been in the business of providing fresh, prepared foods for years, and that NACS bit you just read now urges your response to rapidly accelerating demand for sublimely tasty C Store food. The best decisions are well-fed decisions.

This fiercely competitive market demands your guest experiences surpass the next level. But is there a useable, common cents, adaptable solution?

Yes, there is a comprehensive, low-cost, remote monitoring solution for C Stores. That’s where that especially nice word surpass and IoT come in.

C Store Advantage

Buyer experience can be improved using the renewed efficiency IoT provides. The menu is written ‘on the C Store wall,’ dear owners. In short, you owe these improvements not only to your beloved customers, but also to your enterprising-minded selves.

Also noteworthy: C Store beer sales account for 30 percent of all beer sold in the U.S. The Internet of Things can help you prime that appetite by elevating customer experience. How’s that for opportunity to bank better customer experience?

C Stores must surpass mere fuel stations who sell food incidentally, to become food retailers that also sell gas.

Remote Monitoring Solutions can help you tap thirsty, pick-up business using IoT applications whose data insights using a remote monitoring solution for C Stores, can lead to real operational improvements that mean better customer experience. Call it preventive enhancement.

IoT applications for C Stores include everything from sensor-enabled kitchens that make menu and food service updates more efficient, to temperature or vibration sensors that efficiently maintain HVAC systems, coolers and refrigeration units to ensure product excellence, and an appropriate environment for maximum guest satisfaction.

“With the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), detailed monitoring, record keeping and reporting of food temperatures for commercial food producers and suppliers, including convenience stores, will be critical. Connected store equipment can provide real-time updates of temperature and other necessary data for compliance with new food safety regulations.” (Convenience Store Decisions)

Call to Surpass Convenience

It’s time you surpassed convenience in your C Stores using a cost-saving, easy-to-use Internet of Things (IoT) solution. I won’t kid you, I especially mean, by using the remote monitoring solutions for C Stores kind, from Monnit, the leader in low-cost, remote monitoring solutions. Practical improvement beginning with every customer smile.

Why We Love Wireless (and You Should Too!)

A Monnit Remote Monitoring Solution for Every Animal

It’s about sharing the love, right?

Thinking about this week’s postings, I asked myself a question. Why do we love wireless, remote monitoring solutions? And more importantly, why should you? Here’s a quick, maybe even obvious, list of top-five reasons we love wireless, and you should too.

1. Peace of Mind from Anywhere 

Borrowing from Helpsystems.com’s Technical Solutions Consultant, Kevin Jackson, it makes sense to note, in today’s networked age of disparate locations, up-time can be tricky for many businesses. That’s the first thing we love about remote monitoring solutions, you can monitor and manage your systems from anywhere, anytime.

Helpsystem.com’s example uses network management for a school district and financial institutions, both of which represent perfect opportunity to employ remote monitoring solutions to improve operations efficiently from one central location. But the love doesn’t stop there. Here’s a list of Monnit applications.

2. Low-cost Can’t Lose

We’ll use last week’s facility management post as our cost-saving hero example. I hate to overstate a good thing, but helping businesses save money is a big deal. For about $500-$600, Monnit’s comprehensive, Remote Monitoring Solution for Commercial Properties, coupled with our best-in-class support can warn you before any downpour on your bottom line, while helping maintain appropriate and comfortable environments in your offices at the same time.

In this scenario, paying $15,000 to replace furniture and business assets wouldn’t be a surprise. We love remote monitoring because low-cost solutions mean greater peace of mind. Here’s the Case Use, again.

3. Easy Set-up

Monnit remote monitoring systems can be set-up in a few minutes, and our intuitive interface makes managing your system a snap. A snap! Enough said.  We love remote, wireless monitoring because time saved can equal more time for important things.

4. Wireless Sensor Variety

The fourth reason we love wireless, remote monitoring is variety, or ‘the spice of life,’ according to some. With over 55 different sensor types, and more being developed by our crack team of engineers all the time, the sky is the limit for remote monitoring applications.

5. Best-in-Class Support

We love wireless monitoring so much we package it with best-in-class support and a “top-notch product every step of the way,” says Eli in Monnit Customer Service. “There are so many awesome people who call us on a daily basis. It’s one of the main reasons I look forward to coming into work.”

About Monnit Corp.
Monnit is a global leader in the design and manufacture of low-cost turnkey monitoring solutions for commercial, industrial and consumer markets, recognized by CRN as one of the “20 Coolest IoT Hardware Vendors,” for its innovation, devices, analytics and infrastructure that have transformed and improved the way we work and live.
