Urbanise remote monitoring technology to roll out across Europe
Urbanise.com Limited (Urbanise) (ASX:UBN) announced today that it has entered into a Hosted Services Agreement (HSA) with Smart Process and Control Ltd (Smart Process) – a leading UK based distributor of energy metering products.
Under the agreement, Smart Process will use the Urbanise platform to provide remote asset monitoring and energy management services to its customers – delivering real time energy consumption and asset management information.
Commenting on the announcement, Smart Process Director Graham Lockhart explained that integration of the Urbanise platform into its technology offering was central to the company’s transition from ‘product supplier’ to ‘service provider’.
“Smart Process’ goal is to become a world-class provider of remote monitoring solutions in the built environment. The Urbanise platform takes us one step closer to achieving this goal – enabling Smart Process to differentiate its offer and expand into new growth markets – both strategically and geographically.”
Urbanise CEO Ben Churchill added, “The ability to remotely monitor energy consumption and the performance of critical assets is becoming increasingly relevant as energy costs continue to account for a large percentage of operating costs and new service demands are placed on building operators from both owners and occupants. New ways of thinking around service delivery is rapidly driving industry change. Incorporating Urbanise’s remote monitoring technology into its solutions mix positions Smart Process at the forefront of this change.”
In 2014, Smart Process installed 4,000 meters in more than 400 buildings across the UK, Portugal, Belgium and The Netherlands.
