The year 2020 proved difficult for each and every one of us with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and it surely has impacted all our lives. Our health has never been threatened and put to so much risk, that all sectors were shut down except medical and essentials. We know that this virus is not going to disappear for a long time. The question was what could Elmeasure do to address this issue. We as a company, wanted to explore a long term solution that would benefit society as a whole.
The deeds of the renowned carmakers such as Maruti Suzuki, Ford and General Motors of tying-up with the local companies in mass production of ventilators to help the country, was nothing short of an inspiration! We wanted to be a helping hand too.
The research and discussions clearly proved to us that our ISO-certified manufacturing practices and dealer network were our key strengths. However, we were short-handed with two things – technology to kill germs, and the relative inexperience in the field of consumer products.
From the time of Elmeasure’s inception, ‘Building People’ has always been the philosophy that we abided by, and is the one which we pride in! Health, safety and stability of our people, especially of their infants and elderly is our top priority. The pandemic surely challenged all of these. ‘Innovation’ was the only answer to these challenges. We love solving problems and it has been one of our core driving values since 2004. We are constantly looking out for those challenging problems and test ourselves to come up with applicable solutions.
By making use of Rockforest’s superior UV technology along with our manufacturing practices, we came up with EL-CLEAiR. It is an aesthetically well designed table with a UV drawer where your phones, keys, wallet and other day-to-day articles can be sanitized within 10 minutes.
With a filtration efficiency of 99.97% at 0.3 microns, the additional HEPA air filter provides the ultimate protection in trapping allergens, dust and other particulates surrounding you and provides the cleanest air.
Many companies are taking advantage of people’s anxiety and panic to promote their preventive health products, but without any scientific back-up. This gave us the insight to get EL-CLEAiR thoroughly tested for it’s effectiveness at an accredited laboratory before introducing it to the public and have scientific test reports backing it up.
All of us have ideas and some of them might really work. Nothing brings us a sense of satisfaction and joy like going that extra mile on a challenging path, and coming up with a practical solution to a global problem.
It’s one thing to state one’s ideas and values, but to prove them by action is something else entirely!
There were days until recently where Electricity was still inaccessible to many places in India. But, now the development is to such an extent that, there is no need to go dark any time.
Few products in the Energy space are now able to allow you to connect your EB & DG to give you a seamless power changeover for an uninterrupted power supply.

Electricity is always a hot topic & you can always witness shocking results if you are looking at the data of India. Now, It is accompanied by other 2 major utilities, gas & water as well.
Especially now, India is in the extreme water-scarce situation & also there is no point in discussing the demand vs supply ratio of both electricity & gas, which are based on non-renewable natural resources.
In such an uninvited (probably) conditions, how do the government manage a country with 1.3 billion people?
It is a difficult situation both to control the needs & also to satisfy. This also leads to various malpractices within the industry like quality, tampering, theft, etc. that ultimately damages the economy and breaks the trust between government & people.
Until then, there is this smart innovation came into the picture that exactly needed for a country & situation like this. The government is also made a smart move towards making it mandatory, that is when India over to #PrepaidMeter.
What is a Prepaid Meter?
The energy meter that allows customers to pay for utilities in advance is a prepaid meter. Similar to our prepaid sim card used in mobile phones where the customer can call until the amount is used after which the connection is unavailable.
Prepayment or prepaid meter is a single device that can be used for integrated monitoring of electricity, gas & water consumption. The prepaid meter allows you to pay in advance for electricity to be on the safer side and ensures you don’t have to pay penalty & spend the dark nights.
How are things till date with utilities?
In the past, consumers had no option to view the real-time data of how much electricity has been used & had no control over the budgeting. While, the prepaid meters enables the customer to budget their consumption in advance, detect theft /tampering and payment of energy bills, preventing tenant disputes, further eliminate manual errors while taking energy meter readings.
The challenges generally observed in the conventional metering system were higher tenant dispute & longer payment period, unavailability of alarm on failure, historical data, real-time reporting, accuracy, aggregated meter location, inability to make forecast & control meter remotely also it was found that longer wiring leads to transmission losses.
Prepaid Meters within your reach: Highly integrable, configurable, and a versatile solution.
Prepaid is a plan that deducts usage charges and any fixed charges from account balance each day. These prepayment meters have given the customer the control to budget electricity expenses & monitor usage anytime, protect equipment against overload/over voltage, notifications and alerts via SMS/ Email when recharge balance is low, to keep records of recharge & consumption history for easy support & follow-ups & much more available on our fingertips using the mobile app.
Prepaid Metering Solutions are specially designed to generate every record of energy consumption, VLL, VLN, A, Hz, W, PF, VA, kWh EB & DG, balance, gas and water consumptions, recharge amount. Elmeasure is one of the leading manufacturers of energy metering products and solutions while designing products on par with customer requirements. We have designed microcontroller based contactless prepaid energy meter that provides an effective solution to the electrical service providers.
Prepayment meter allows you to budget and stay in control of your utility consumption and, prevent unexpected bills. Prepayment meter can monitor and report real-time data to track energy consumption for precise billing. This device can access and report critical information, alerts via emails or pop-ups when meter tampering occurs. One of the smart features of prepayment meter is to monitor the meter usage and configure firmware at any time from the mobile app. Further has the ability to monitor grouped meters, integrate gas & water meter.
Smart features of a prepayment meter
Remote Display Unit to have an explicit view of live meter reading
Direct current measurement up to 100A for 3 phase measurements.

I call this a hypothesis because it is just the dogma of an individual after seeing the problems and correlating with some other equivalent theory and the industry his company works for, to compliment in their own style.
This is a hypothesis, which can cause chaos if it’s considered just as another theory…So, we still have the chance to be not included in /concluded as THE NEXT CHAPTER IN CHAOS THEORY!
This is all about energy and its consumption. As we discuss its usage we speak a lot about its wastage too, which has the major role!
THE SUSPICIOUS STORY
Energy is being transformed from one state to other, the energy which is not utilized or energy utilized more than required is, and also the unrecognized/unknown transformed state of energy is considered Energy wasted.
In chaos theory, “The Butterfly Effect” is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.
In more apt to the situation, it can be rewritten as simple as,
Your small & simple unnoticed actions here are the reason for huge reactions/chaos somewhere else later.
The butterfly has a very major role in creating natural calamities like tornados, cyclones, hurricanes because of their wing flap which cause a small pressure gap in the surrounding air molecules here, that create a huge damage somewhere later.
“Human Beings are as beautiful & innocent as Butterflies, but not as dumb”.Butterflies don’t know what they are causing, but being the most intelligent species on the earth, I believe our cognition system is far better than theirs. So we can understand how and what damage we are creating, at least we can share it if someone doesn’t know!
This is the stimulus for writing this to all human beings over there, The Energy we wasted here, is somewhere affecting the lives of other people in a very painful way! The name “The human effect” is coined after finding the similarities in the concept of “the Butterfly effect”!
So let me tell you, how much damage we are causing to the whole economy of our country & how injustice we are to the poor without our notice. Allow me to use a situation of a middle class family in India.
THE MATHEMATICAL MYSTERY
A (1) Fan that consumes 100 watts when runs for 24 hrs. a day, the electric power would be Approximately 72 UNITS/MONTH (Average Data)
(Let’s make it equal for one day on both sides. i.e., fan rotated for the whole day & the units spent for 1 day)
1*100*24 (Watt Hr) = 72 units/month = 72 /30 (Avg. days of a month)
= 2.4 units /day
2400 watt hr = 2.4 units
1 UNIT = 1000 WATT Hr ……. (1)
[This is how Electricity is measured, Isn’t it?]
The energy transforms into different forms. So, why not we convert its equivalent amount to what is required for the survival of human beings. This is where the hypothesis has started. (i.e., kilowatt-hour into Calories)
1 WATT Hr = 3600 Joules……. (2)
But, 4.184 k Joules = 1 Large Cal
so, 1 Joule = 1/4184 = 0.000239 Large Calories ……. (3)
Now, From (2) & (3)
1 WATT Hr. = (3600* 0.000239) Large Calories
1 Watt Hr = 0.86042065 Large Calories ……. (4)
and, From (1) & (4)
1 UNIT = 1 Kilo Watt Hour = 1000 * 0.86042065 Large Calories.
1 UNIT ~ 860.402 Large Calories
So, 1 unit of electricity is equivalent to 860.402 large calories
A LITTLE HISTORY:
Harvard Health Publications suggests, The SAFE INTAKE for women is at least 1,200 calories daily and men get a minimum of 1,500 calories a day.
1 Unit of Energy = 860.402/1200 = 0.717 FEMALE ADULTS
= 860.402 / 1500 = 0.573 MALE ADULTS
2 UNITS of ELECTRICITY can Serve ~ [1 WOMAN & 1 kid] (or)1 MAN for a day.
The following table gives the wattage and daily usage time of typical household appliances owned by a middle-class family in India on an AVERAGE (Credits: http://achahome.com/)
Total consumption Per day = 7 units.
Total consumption Per month = 30* 7 = 210 units.
If we can be able to save 30% of it, which for each house can be estimated as = 30*210/100 = 63 UNITS
This can at least serve 45 WOMEN (or) 36 MEN (or) 100 children per month.
Annually, each house hold can save a lot of energy equivalent to serve up to 500 people. In case if it is a factory /industry/shopping mall, the number is bigger.
If the wastage could not be stopped, someone has to sacrifice their life. It was Nature previously which is abundant, but mankind is not kind enough to save nature for future, so the sacrifice has to be made by mankind ultimately! NATURE HAS NO FUTURE! If at all, it has to be called “Artificial Nature” may be!
There is the rising demand for energy on one side and diminishing natural resources on the other, which will now lead to intolerance of Nature.
BIG FAT COMPLEMENTARY:
The complementary & important information is, the extra fat/cholesterol accumulated in our body is a form of energy and that was snatched from other’s food. Exercise to let go of the energy being stuck wasted in you! This will keep you healthy too!
This is just wastage of Electricity as a form of energy, if we relate the wastage of Gas, petroleum, water, etc. as the forms of energy too, the guilt will kill us.
I find this is the way to explain a common man too. Every time you waste energy, someone is dying of hunger & you are the murderer. Next, it may be you, one of your family member, your friend or other human beings.
So, is it just a murder? Isn’t that suicide???
AND, THE COMPULSORY:
New York’s (REV) Reforming the Energy Vision is too far from. India’s Energy vision is still at “understanding the importance of Energy”. Long way to go …
But, that doesn’t mean we are technically backward class. We only have a section of people who are economically backward! The only problem is the information and communication about the state-of-art technologies being developed in India to control and manage energies at homes, shopping malls, factories, industries, apartments, etc.
Each Household can use current limiting prepaid energy meters with the integration of Gas and Water with the electrical parameters thereby, extending the flexibility for the user to budget expenses & save energy whereas the Shopping malls, industries, factories, and apartments can use energy management solutions to avoid a lot of unwanted usages.
We can’t control the whole world! But as literates, we at least know to save power in our surroundings; at office & home.
Note: The values are approximated to less value possible to make ourselves feel less guilty. There is a chance of more wastage than what we actually have estimated because there are still some forms of energy wastage which can’t be noticed!
THIS IS DEFINITELY A STORYTELLING, BUT THE ONE NEVER TOLD OR IMAGINED!
ANY UNTOLD STORY CAN’T BE CONCLUDED AS A HYPOTHESIS BEFORE GIVING IT A THOUGHT! THINK ABOUT IT.
Note: This is just a hypothesis that might be a possibility with ever growing technology, data & the evolving ways of easy processing.
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today so does an opportunity to choose a leader to you.
This is an opportunity that might be central to every major challenge or opportunity you face tomorrow but the emotions towards caste, influence is mundane to get replaced quickly. Science may help, Technology may be the witness to put one’s thoughts & mind forward for the well being of the human race. Either saving our country for future generations or saving the future of the country for generations, We are in the front line. The prior was our job, what we are absolutely good at maybe only in the energy space but that decides the future of a country, but the latter is something where we wanted to be a helping hand.
Before going digital, Dear people, please cast your vote because, #ApnaTimeAagaya
So, Digital Transformation for Elections & Future of Governance can be addressed for 3 categories.
It is the primary concept where elections fail, people go emotional in choosing a leader after all the humans right! But, the true sense of a political leader is always in disguise but not if digital trends like AI, Sensitivity analysis & Blockchain technology comes into the picture.
Technologies like these can record minute financial details & provide a clean chit for a political leader who can be in the race. Sensitivity analysis can help predict future behaviors based on the previous & AI, Machine Learning can help the leader by personalizing people experiences.
The process of voting can be made very transparent & effective with the technologies that we have now, needless to say, the Aadhar system had every individual’s security data (like fingerprints, address, mobile, etc.) & the voting system can be so secure & effective using biometric systems using retina, thumb impression, etc.
People & Governance:
Nearly 1.4 billion population & slow pace of #DigitaTransformation makes our governance the weakest in the whole world, but may not be anymore if all the above-mentioned technologies are in place making the#DigitalTransfusion into the whole country through every house/street by means of “Local Governance”.
Financial Matters like money, gold, properties are taken care of by Blockchain at it’s best.
Criminal Matters are taken care of by Sensitivity analysis & behavioral analytics using Big Data & Robotics.
The Agricultural, Industrial & Infrastructure can have co-aligned growth through technologies like IoT, Additive Manufacturing, Smart cities, EV, cloud technologies, etc.
Flawless governance is achievable with technologies like AI & machine learning, etc. to integrate all together.
Keeping aside the theory, Every change has it’s limitations & problems before stepping in. You all know the difficulties to implement these still-evolving technologies, but may not be impossible within 10-15 years. Let’s hope for the best.
Meanwhile, I would love to hear your thoughts on how #DigitalTransformation can help us achieve good governance in the comments below.
Sam is a complete Technology savvy, sports lover, most patient & responsible citizen to explore the infinite possibilities in the energy space to make the world a better place to live. Hear out for the Chairman at Elmeasure.
The digital world is the living world & the rest are just spectators. So, this statement gives birth to these 2 questions of all time, that makes Digital Transformation is not the luxury but necessary.
Are you Digital Ready? / Are you Digitally Ready?
Digital Transformation in many areas like Data, Analytics, Technology, Revenue, even strategy, etc… is accused of being merciless & collapse many fat-cat corporates within no time.
It is not a specific industry but, even the technological industries had their own versions of excuses for not preferring change & the following basic reasons has to be addressed for being on top.
No Information / Don’t see it coming
No idea of where to start & How it ends
Budget, Resources, & etc.
Digital Transformation is a process where the way an organization operates, measure & perform gets effective with less hassle in terms of measurement, monitoring & control.
So, In context to #DigitalTransformation in the shoes of Energy industry, We have 3 concepts to hit on.
1. Digital Transfusion but not Digital Transformation
In medical terms, Transfusion happens in order to change the old blood with a fresh one that suits. Electricity is one such bloodline that flows through the entire organization & any type of organization that demands primary attention. But, is it possible for Digital Transformation of the company particularly in Energy & power?
Yes, Which why we call it Digital Transfusion & this is how we help organizations to achieve the Digital Transformation.
2. Where to begin, especially when you have limited resources.
Basic digital transformation should start with a scope to cover the whole organization via energy & power resources that cover at least 40% of your annual expenses. These can be monitored, measured & controlled using a system that can recognize enormous energy-saving prospects, help optimize operations and track return on assets (ROA) to a great extent in manufacturing, industrial machinery, power & utilities, mining, oil & gas industries.
Adopting energy management software to provide flexibility, mobility and data access to help enterprises focus on their core business in addition to environmental sustainability.
#JustSaying Few Energy management systems (#ELNet) have recorded a whooping RoI of <6 months & reducing expenses by ~15% annually.
3. Where is this headed ultimately?
This can take us to the next level where organizations can personalize employee experiences, which is the future of work.
The capabilities of digital transition are the inclusion of real-time monitoring, and cloud services to ease the workflows, predict trends & behavior patterns offer plans in decision-making.
The rapid growth in technology towards digitalization allows the industry to take complete advantage in analyzing the overall energy usage, real-time processing of the acquired data, and tailoring the insights as per user needs. Energy management is leading the world’s energy efficiency with the rise of Interoperability (A concept that enlights the Internet of Things – IoT) even in the industry 4.0.
Let’s continue the talk in the stall: H12. D45 (D4511) at #HannoverMesse.
Middle East Electricity is one of the largest global exhibitions conducted every year in the middle east for Energy & Power industry. Unlike other exhibitions for Energy, MEE has got the caliber to pull the crowd from almost every continent.
There are pretty reasons why everyone who is somehow connected to energy space must visit the MEE. We at Elmeasure, always are emotionally connected to UAE as it has been our first export country & now we are spread over 50+ countries with a team, sales offices in UAE, USA & around 15 channel partners across the globe.
1. Political Diligence

Indian Textile Industry hits the 5th Millennium: The archaeological surveys and studies have found that the people of Harrapan civilization knew to weave, and the spinning of cotton four thousand years ago. Apart from the Bronze age civilization, There was a proof for textile trade in India during the early centuries, A block printed and resist-dyed fabric, whose origin is from Gujarat was found in the tombs of Fostat, Egypt.
Needless to say that, we are very old in the business, but then it was very much less compared to now.The textile industry is now is not just manufacturing of yarn, fabrics, and textiles for clothing, carpets but, further classified based on distinct sections such as research, design, manufacture, and distribution.
What is the Indian Textile Industry weaving now?
Name anything in the Textile industry, Either India was already there or India was the only one there. The oldest sector & the greatest contributor to our economy has set benchmarks in various ways.
The growth of the Textile industry looks promising with the increase in market demand worldwide for textile products. Sneak into the facts & figures to understand what is weaving in the Indian Textile Industry now.
Although the industry is well poised to grow at an annual rate of 15% but going ahead will be tough unless the industry acquires technological know-how related to ” From Connecting Each Module to Automating the Whole Process”.
Besides the inferior technology, the industry has been persistently facing various external issues which need immediate attention. Major issues are:
Skill gaps and the shortage of skilled manpower as the process is yet to be automated
Very high-interest rates
Lack of sustained demand from the user sector
Import of second-hand machinery whose life cycle is less & the average energy consumption/cost is more.
The Process which has to be measured, monitored & controlled for avoiding unnecessary variable costs & eventually gaining more profits.
The knowledge for the owners to Invest in the technology.
Is the Fashion Industry still running Old-fashioned?
The process involved in the textile industry is found to be highly complex with the beginning of research, design, development to finished products. These processes are performed using a wide range of machines such as spinning, weaving, dyeing, printing, finishing and manufacturing fabrics.
It is completely process-based where each & every stage has the power that will lead to a large impact on productivity and profitability during any obstructions. We need keen monitoring at every stage in complex processes such as textile that demands an Integrated system to measure the precise details of each machine.
An interoperable platform for Textile Factories?
The textile industry is found to be the leading sector that needs immediate digitalization as it is dependent on precise details of equipment functioning, management of dyes, and monitoring of raw materials. Further, it is necessary to consider the deviations occurring in the industry from Standard Operating Conditions to minimize the revenue losses. This suggests the need to effectively utilize technology in the textile industry either it is IIoT based products or the IoT solutions.
Energy & Process Monitor:
A single device to monitors the electrical & Process parameters & suggest the preventive measures while analyzed using an Energy & Process Management System.
Speed Vs Kw curve, trends, bar graphs, comparisons
Alerts on higher UKG, lesser production, utilization & power fluctuations.
Maintenance alerts based on run hours production cost analysis – Cost Audits – Energy Audits
An Energy & Process Management System at 50001:2011 standards:
Interoperability is the concept evolved by the way Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions works, which is generally defined as a network of physical objects with internet connectivity for the communication between the devices and the system.
The optimum productivity is achieved only when the system is process oriented & the process is automated!
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is found to be a gateway between the computing technologies, cloud, mobile machine learning, and industrial infrastructure to help industries elevate their productivity and efficiency. IIoT solutions is a world of the monotonous throng with networks, sensors, operating equipment and devices in comparison to smart home appliances. The information collected from the devices will be used to analyze, monitor, maintain high performance and efficiency in industrial applications such as production and maintenance.
Further, data collected can be directly uploaded to a cloud server using products like EPC through various communication protocols.
It is necessary to utilize process management systems in textile industries to monitor and receive real-time data for the effective decision-making process.
These solutions can help in preventive maintenance to reduce the overall energy consumption and to provide a sustainable environment.
Enhance Life & Economy through Textile industry:
In several textile industries, sensors were placed in washers, dryers, and other equipment to improvise their performance by attaining real-time data, in addition to detecting the failure of equipment thereby reducing the downtime.
Specific energy consumption of heavy loads: Calculation of section-wise energy consumption against product output
Performance check and periodic maintenance: Verification of equipment data with respect to rated specs
Monitoring of cyclic operation of spinning unit (Ring frame): Number of Stoppages with duration during doffing; Energy comparison of various ring frames bis-à-vis product outputs (Ring UKG); Different Yarns count and specific energy consumption (UKG) per Ring frame
Identifying the idle running of the machine.
There are multiple Case studies on Pacific Textiles, Getzner Textile, Everest Textile industry indicates the need for their rapid transformation towards the digital revolution to improvise their operations & productivity.
Frequent challenges observed in incorporating IoT in the textile industry:
Recent studies on IIoT indicates a rapid growth towards automating textile industry from the initial stages of development to production, storage, and marketing to improve the time to market (TTM). However, the practical implementation of IoT in the industry will undergo various challenges while redefining the textile industry as listed below:
IoT being a network of physical objects, it is necessary to ensure appropriate connectivity of weaving machines with huge bandwidth through Ethernet.
A large amount of structured/unstructured data will be available on the integration of IoT and it is necessary to manage these voluminous data.
Suitable IoT management platforms that are compatible with ERP, administrative and management systems are required.
Data integrity and confidentiality of the data transferred needs to be considered with the integration of IoT platforms.
“How about your process automation + RoI in < 6 Months” with a system customizable for any industry as per the needs?
A simple and easy-to-use IoT platform from ELMEASURE® can be used to perform periodic assessments which stores, monitors and measures to perform detailed analysis for any industrial challenges.
This is a single platform that can be customized based on the industry’s process whether Food Processing, Textile, Engineering, Automobiles, etc.
Founder & CEO of Elmeasure India Pvt. Ltd., Mr. Babu is an innovator & practitioner of energy saving products & solutions. He is obsessed with the idea of making the world a better place in the area where the impact is huge & faster i.e., Energy.
Energy is the biggest resource every country can count on for their seamless future. When the future is determined based on your ability to manage energy resources, how sure are you to get an adequate amount of electricity is the question to answer. When saving is not on the bucket list, it comes to the traditional way of any developing country’s life, rich get more access & poor get limited access.
“Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today.”
Affordable & clean energy is one of the 17 goals to transform the world called ‘sustainable development goals’ by UNO. They believe that the world revolves around energy to evolve the new phases of development.
It is one of the requisites for the sustained growth of an individual, organization, factory, state or even nation.
So, the necessity of energy & its management is like a fingerprint that can’t be the same for everyone. Even 2 similar plants might need different areas of energy saving. So, we don’t have something called ready-made EMS available. Though some made it available online, it actually does show you a picture of whole bills but no predictions or suggestions to your RoI, Savings.
In short, If a system can’t save your manpower, money & resources that are as good as doing nothing.
So, how do you choose an EMS that actually works for you?
What is an EMS?
Energy Management System is a platform that helps Residential complexes, manufacturing plants, commercial buildings to define & suggest what all the possible areas to save energy.
“Measuring your energy usage and cost is the first step to properly managing energy”
Energy is not an expenditure; it is an asset where the monitored & controlled utilization can bring a lot of saving.
What exactly an EMS offers?
Improve strategic energy management capabilities.
Build the case to leadership on the value of energy management and gain additional support.
Improve control and transparency of energy costs and budgets.
Improve operational efficiency.
Facilitate demand response and energy purchasing.
What do you need to do?
There are various elements involved in taking the decision to finalize an EMS, from installation to reports until predictive analysis of the energy & process parameters, the requirement varies from organization to organization. In such cases, there should be few parameters to recognize the feasibility of the system with your organization like,
1. Multiple communication possibilities:
The Software you use should be capable to accept the ocean of changes & ready to mingle with any other third-party devices. Keeping aside the compatibility of a system, It should allow the change management that we consider mandatory even for the systems, would definitely save us a fortune. It should be able to get along with any type of communication protocols which is only possible with an interoperable platform with the capability of accepting any kind of devices.
2. Technology & Customization:
Technology is far most important any other aspects, it seems you are working very hard but, you are still not growing. Just like Nokia, we fail & still, we didn’t know the reason. It decides your epitome of growth.
The better the technology the better the results in the industry. It is very important to check with the technology & the platform it is built on. It is well-versed that the need for EMS varies for every business, of course, every sector. It is thus very important to customize the solution that solves your pain points, & leave the rest unless given for free of cost.
Technology that can’t be customized for you is not the right one for you.
3. Future Proof:
An organization is a living object. Every invention & investment in the organization should be made sure to be compatible with future changes either in terms of technology or the people. An organization can be successful when it is process oriented & the platforms you use to make it happen are future proof.
The software once designed for your organization should be made sure that the same software can be upgraded with multiple aspects of technological advancements like compatibility with other party vendors, possible vertical integration, easy technological upgrade, etc. It should be made future-proof to fit the organization at any time.
4. Data Safety, Security & Analysis:
Data is a very important asset for every organization now & the vulnerability of data leads to unprecedented consequences as it mainly depicts the privacy of an individual, an organization, etc. If your data is compromised your competitor is as good as you or may be better than you because Data has a better idea than you do.
The output of every invention is based on the ease of data accessing along with its safety & security. Technologies like Blockchain may be advanced, but many countries are still in dilemma whether to imbibe it due to its data decentralization. It is not applicable for every Industry, also not everyone in the industry that is applicable may not be happy with low secure technologies but, This kind of technologies will be the essential part of the industry in the coming years if the safety & security is taken care of.
5. Return on Investment (RoI):
People should consider spending on systems in saving Energy as an investment but not as the expenditure. For people who consider it as the investment here is what you need to consider, The RoI (Return on Investment). Less the payback period, better the solution you have invested on & early start saving the energy resources.
Apart from these major requisites, there are few secondary factors to look at before choosing, else the Other Requisites can be:
There are 100s of players in the market who has software that named as Energy Management System, just create an account, purchase the online software even at 10000 bucks, Which is where people got confused with the word “affordability” of a system. Affordability is actually the price-product-premises fit which self-defines as the price you pay is worth the product features, aesthetics, & technology that should help solve the pain of your enterprise.
