Siemens Digital Service Centers
Add critical skills to ensure your building performance stays on track: Once your efficiency strategy and programs are defined and implemented, let the engineers and technicians at our Digital Service Centers support your operational personnel with monitoring, maintaining and continually optimizing your building management systems and processes – for the long-term smooth, problem-free, and energy-efficient operation of your buildings and systems.
Program delivery models to suit every need
Two major barriers typically stand in the way of efficiency projects right from the start: financing and in-house skill sets. Siemens offers flexible delivery models, from energy performance contracting to managed services agreements with the potential for off-balance treatment.
Enhancing building performance through the power of data
Navigator, the cloud-based energy and asset management platform, serves as the foundation for a comprehensive set of service offerings. The platform centralizes disparate data sets related to building performance (energy consumption, environmental conditions, etc.), asset health (equipment details, real-time performance, etc.) and maintenance practices (schedules, work orders, etc.). When combined, these data sets enable better decisions and ultimately lead to a significant and tangible outcome for your business. Siemens works with you to generate results through a series of energy and asset performance services that leverage insights from Navigator. The benefits for your building include improved environmental conditions, increased operational efficiency and reduced risks associated with downtime from equipment failures.
In a recent survey by independent research and consulting firm Verdantix, Siemens was ranked as the no. 1 preferred brand for software and services that optimize energy, maintenance and facility operations.
Take a more comprehensive approach thanks to Total Energy Management
Total Energy Management is a comprehensive approach to energy services and projects that ensures you consume only the energy necessary; purchase energy at a fair price; generate and store energy on-site; and continuously improve through data-driven analysis.
Navigator plays an important role in properly delivering Total Energy Management. In particular, it provides reliable insights into key energy and sustainability metrics, aids in reporting and communicating those findings, helps to identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement through its advanced analytics engine, and provides quantifiable assurance that your targets have been achieved. Ultimately, Navigator is transforming data into results that drive your core business forward.
Modernize your maintenance practices
In the newest Navigator release, maintenance data and asset data – such as the make and model of installed equipment – is coupled with building performance data that enables you to drastically improve your operational spending, increase uptime and ensure environmental conditions are always ideal. This means that your maintenance efforts are better directed, which in turn results in lower total OPEX spending and more reliable equipment so that your core business can continue to run smoothly. With a data-driven approach to facility maintenance, studies have shown that repair costs can sink by 45 percent and replacement costs by 35 percent. In addition, improved maintenance strategies result means up to 45 percent less downtime.
Together Navigator and MindSphere open unlimited possibilities
Your building’s data and the insights generated by Navigator have even more potential when paired with MindSphere, the cloud-based, open Internet of Things (IoT) operating system from Siemens. MindSphere connects products, plants, systems and machines to harness the wealth of data generated by IoT with advanced analytics. By leveraging the performance, asset and maintenance data from Navigator, new apps can be created to tackle even the toughest and most unique problems.
Your data secured at all steps
Whether for cutting energy use across your entire real-estate portfolio or for improving individual facility maintenance, Navigator relies on cloud computing. Because we realize that many companies still have reservations about releasing and storing their operational data in the cloud, Siemens employs a comprehensive and holistic cybersecurity approach in which security activities are embedded throughout the entire product and solution life cycle.
The company’s state-of-the-art data centers are located within the European Union. At all times – whether in rest or in transit – data is being protected by the most modern cryptographic technology. Regular backups and restore capabilities ensure availability and accessibility. We take cyber security extremely seriously so that you can feel more confident in the way your data is collected, analyzed and put to use on-site and remotely.
For cybersecurity topics, Siemens ProductCERT will be the central team for responding to potential security incidents and vulnerabilities related to Siemens products, solutions and services.
