1. Building construction costs are reduced. Multiple systems sharing resources potentially require less training, networks, IT, project co-ordination, communications and commissioning.
2. Maintenance costs are reduced as single visits can be scheduled for multiple applications which would normally require separate visits from different organisations. Greater opportunities exist to save on energy bills, and when a call-out is required, the correct engineer is sent every time without any confusion between organisations.
3. A smarter building is created with swift automatic decisions being made without human consultation. There are increased energy savings. Clients have only one system to become familiar with, enabling more efficient training plus easier holiday and sickness cover.
