Phoenix Energy Technologies (PhoenixET) provides services for the management, research and optimization of energy consumption. Phoenix's customers are some of the largest retail and hospitality chains, universities, theaters, and more.

PhoenixET provides leading energy management and services based on their specialized software PhoenixET EnterpriseDX. Their clients use this group of systems and solutions for enterprise energy management.

The PhoenixET system is a centralized console, which integrates securely with a client’s existing building management equipment: heat and air conditioning systems, ventilation, lighting and others. The console integrates with the PhoenixET database and captures instrument readings at a predetermined frequency - typically every 15 minutes. The system enables clients to manage and control capital equipment (for example, to set on/off time), and provides information about the energy consumption of the client’s buildings.

In addition to monitoring and control, PhoenixET provides data analytics services.  The platform pairs actionable data with real-time building, asset monitoring and predictive analysis to reduce energy, facilities, and capital equipment costs to customers. Analytical studies are performed on the Microsoft Power BI platform. The technology facilitates building data cubes and automated analysis.

Challenge

Initially, Phoenix contacted  First Line Software to use their expertise to solve issues with the data uploading process. First Line Software optimized the data access layer, which improved the speed of uploading reports to a reasonable rate. FLS also conducted an analysis of the databases and prepared quality improvement recommendations for reducing the size of databases with the reconfiguration of the indices, table normalization, etc.

Product description 

First Line Software has been developing a web-application for the PhoenixET platform, so customers can view the energy data for their buildings in real-time. The application alerts clients about any trouble points such as higher energy consumption and can be used by clients to compare different indicators themselves.  

First Line Software developed the Сommanding service, which allows for the management of several groups of devices from the unified system. Previously each device was controlled separately.

First Line Software implemented Microsoft Reporting Services, a simple analytics toolkit.

Four professionals from First Line Software developed the Building View solution. This solution is used to monitor the operation of energy-consuming appliances in the building. It provides real-time visibility and assembles statistical analysis based on collected data. The solution was already in existence; however, FLS completely redeveloped it for PhoenixET.

Building View is already being used by PhoenixET clients.

Your effort is the #1 reason that this project is going so well. I've worked with a lot of teams over the years and there are very few teams that I trust and respect. When you are given a task or feature, I never have to worry whether or not it will be accomplished on time and I never worry about the quality - you always deliver.
