As a facility manager, you know your building automation system (BAS) is one of your greatest assets in managing a facility’s comfort and efficiency. You work closely with your service provider to ensure your facilities’ systems are properly running and your equipment is well-maintained and reliable. But there is a more strategic purpose for building automation, and perspectives are shifting away from viewing a BAS and your facilities’ systems simply as costs. Progressive facility managers have adopted the mindset that their BAS can enhance revenue, too. They ask themselves, “How can I help my business? How can I help my company?” They know they still have to maintain costs, but also know their BAS doesn’t just control costs. They know their systems need to support an organization’s business goals.
