Business premises require monitoring systems to make sure that all of the support systems are running efficiently. Early warnings of potential issues are essential to ensure that the business can operate both efficiently and effectively.
At Ecl-ips we believe that all of the data that we collect should be available at the touch of a button, rather than being distributed across systems. This in turn, helps the business run in an efficient manner with no lost revenue due to the heating being too low or high, the air conditioning system not working, a burst pipe flooding the server room, etc.
