Business challenge of MCS Solutions
MCS Solutions, a Belgian company that provides an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) for Fortune Global 100 companies, needed to enrich their platform with new facility energy management solutions in enterprise resource planning mobility. The energy management software company requested Intellias to build an efficient energy management system software for them.
MCS has 25 years of experience in the energy sector, being recognized as one to top energy management system companies across 60+ countries and a suite of 20+ integrated cross-platform solutions for facility energy management. As one of the best energy management software companies across the globe, MCS pursues a strategy of continuous innovation in their energy management system software development to drive business growth. They turned to Intellias for a reliable team versed in Zend Server and Oracle DB technologies to enrich their enterprise-grade, cross-platform software suite and help them with the building energy management systems development.
Our client also entrusted our team of experts with designing and developing an energy management solution that would harness the power of real-time data, big data analytics, cloud computing, and IoT development services.
Energy management system software solutions delivered
To overcome our client’s limited in-house development capacity and to scale up their engineering power, Intellias built a dedicated 60-member team in Lviv. Apart from R&D, business analysis, DevOps, development, quality control, and documentation, Intellias also shared responsibility for product ownership at peak periods during the entire energy management system software development life cycle.
In order to boost the client’s IWMS platform competitive advantage over other energy management system companies, Intellias reworked half of the codebase to provide new software offerings, an effective approach to platform adoption, and custom development practices.
Intellias provided our client with
- A modular software platform for desktops, tablets, and smartphones
- Process automation capabilities for real estate and property management, contract and asset handling, meeting room reservations, reception desk and visitor logging, parking facility management, and energy management
- Extensive reporting functionality, from operational reporting to high-end management reporting and dashboards
- An ERP facility energy management solution that enables efficient collection, validation, normalization, visualization, and benchmarking of data, as well as efficient energy allocation and calculation of energy charges
By delegating development and team management to Intellias, our client was able to become more competitive among energy management system companies and concentrate on their core tasks – bringing more business value with new products, caring for existing accounts, and promoting their products in new markets. Designed for large public and privately held organizations, our client’s energy management system software suite is marketed in over 60 countries and serves Fortune Global 100 companies including Toyota, ING Group, BNP Paribas, Siemens, BASF, and Panasonic.
