Findings from Zumbotel Global Services (ZGS), reveals the UK Retail Industry could save more than £6bn by 2025. In eight short years, digitally transforming your lighting means huge savings in energy costs. Is now the time to get to grips with your lighting estate and understand where savings can be made?
Digital lighting systems – Controls & monitoring
Let’s start from the beginning by logging a work order. It’s a dragged-out process. Identify problem, report issue, wait for confirmation, wait for attendance from contractor and finally complete work. Or worse, contractor arrives and a part is identified which can cause a second visit.
End this tedious task with smart controls. They allow you or your provider to regulate lighting usage, and the output that light provides. This depends on the needs of the location in terms of accent or ambient conditions. Using smart controls allows an accurate analysis of usage to be generated, which will highlight inefficient areas for improvement opportunities.
Technology based management of your lighting estate also reduces time to fix. With data clearly available on failures or issues, a first-time fix can quickly be put in place. This means a reduction in call out costs, failures and the overall impact that lights out has on your brand. Installing this software is not only good for budgetary reasons; it gives consumers the best first impression of your store.
Smart monitoring brings additional advantages; wireless software collects data and provides greater visibility into the maintenance needs of the estate. Collecting data in this way means the system works ‘for’ you and your team. Thus, ensuing long-term energy saving and productivity gains for the on-site personnel as their focus can be put elsewhere.
The ZGS report focuses on the savings made after the digital transformations have taken place, making very clear this is a financial gain in terms of the bottom line. Offering lighting-as-a-service means no upfront capital or on-going operational expenditure.
