Boss in the retail sector
Delivering energy efficiency, cost reduction and customer experience in the retail sector
BEMS/BEMS controls can significantly reduce energy costs and enhance the customer shopping experience. Smart control enables cost reduction, energy efficiency and customer experience throughout its lifecycle.
Many of the savings we suggest are measurable, low cost and immediate. For example, reducing heating temperatures by just 1ºC can cut fuel consumption by 8% (source: The Carbon Trust).
Boss Controls optimises Building Management Systems (BMS/BEMS) which control HVAC, electric panel heaters, escalators, elevators, lighting and over-door heating. These can be managed to align with your business occupancy to meet trading, stocking and holiday periods. We also install recommend occupancy sensors, to trigger smart temperature control for optimum comfort to boost footfall, retain shoppers and support the local economy.
If shops are unoccupied for a predetermined time, our BMS controls engineers can setback the temperature set points to reduce energy consumption, energy costs and shrink your carbon footprint.
Did you know?
A 20% cut in energy costs represents the same bottom line benefit as a 5% increase in sales.
We understand that customer experience is at the forefront of your minds, and our environment solutions therefore enhance customer comfort, maximising their stay. We offer quick and easy solutions for example, the colder the weather, the more clothes customers will wear, so instead of overheating stores, staff uniforms should align with the seasons. Smart sensors detect occupancy, keeping the environment at optimum comfort.
Reducing energy consumption reduces costs. Optimising BMS reduces wear and tear on your plant also reducing costs and also our remote systems alert us to problems before causing business downtime, and they also reduce the need for engineers nners on site reducing call-out costs. We also recommend solutions including keep refrigeration operating at peak efficiency to reduce cooling costs.
Most energy is consumed via heating, cooling storage and lighting (source: The Carbon Trust). Boss Controls will audit your sites and report where quick wins can be achieved, e.g. natural ventilation, pre-planned maintenance, daylight and occupancy sensors, replacing dated light with low energy LEDs, behaviour (e.g. wearing seasonal uniforms) and breaking common myths.
Boss Remote Solutions Centre enables the retail sector to manage its properties up to 94% more cost-effectively as compared to locally based servers in stores. Our systems also allow for expansion, so new stores can be easily added to the system.
Single and multi-storey buildings. BMS is optimised to take care of specialist areas including in-store bakeries, offices, staff accommodation, refrigeration, warehousing, escalators, loading bays and underground parking.
Just like shops, distribution warehouses must be heated, cooled or controlled for humidity. As many of them are relatively new, they are building with efficient zone lighting where automated lighting controls align with warehouse activity. Many of them are being built with less HVAC and using natural ventilation technology which must still be controlled with BMS/BEMS.
