More effective management requires access to the right data.

Metalsa- Motor Vehicle Part Manufacturer

Metalsa had an initiative to identify and eliminate waste in their facility. They started in the right place with their utility bills, but found that separating expenses between production costs and overhead costs was not a simple task with their current systems.

The energy dashboard created by the Wasmer Company and the software collecting the data is capable of scaling for future project objectives. It shows a realtime view of data via the web, VNC, and panel view.
