and custom analytics reports, plus simpler installation, configuration, and
operation highlight enhancements
September 24, 2014 ? It just got much easier for IT, AV, and
facilities managers to optimize workspaces and building operations. Crestron
today announced the release of its new Crestron Fusion 10 enterprise building
management software, which delivers an improved end-to-end experience, from
faster installation and configuration to simpler management and control.
Learn from history
Crestron Fusion 10 provides new room utilization statistics and energy reports,
including peak energy consumed in the space/room and energy category level,
that make it easy to analyze historical usage data.
Crestron Fusion 10 can even gather historical reporting for meetings that were
set up before Crestron Fusion 10 was even installed. If meeting rooms were
selected using popular calendar programs such as Microsoft® Exchange
and Google Calendar™, the new Backfill functionality in Crestron
Fusion 10 can retrieve data such as room utilization, top organizers, and
meeting duration and then incorporate it in reports. You can immediately use
this data to make decisions concerning new facilities or redesign of existing
meeting spaces to meet the needs and usage patterns of knowledge workers.
One world view
Crestron Fusion 10 provides an integrated platform to create truly smart
buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. From a centralized
dashboard, Crestron Fusion 10 unifies and simplifies the way organizations
control, monitor, and manage building technology, orchestrate building and AV
automation, and control energy usage.
“Crestron Fusion 10 gives you the analytics reports you need to acquire
valuable insight into how your meeting rooms, facilities, and AV equipment are
being used and how energy is being consumed,” said Glen Marianko, Technology
Manager, Enterprise Solutions at Crestron. “The new reports are designed to
help you plan for and cost-justify investments in the integrated building
technologies that make your knowledge workers more productive and your business
Analytics your way
Crestron is even giving current Crestron Fusion customers the opportunity to
submit their requests for custom reports that best meet the needs of their
business at crestron.com/fusionreports.
“Imagine having the ability to watch every room in your facility and record
whatever information you want. That’s the power of Crestron Fusion 10,” said
Marianko. “We’ve designed the reporting interface to enable new reports to be
added at any time. We can custom-build reports that support whatever business
decisions you need to make, using any data that Crestron Fusion 10 collects.”
The latest version of Fusion EM®, the energy management component of
Crestron Fusion 10, includes an enhanced calendaring interface that enables
facilities managers to pre-set building systems operation for weekends,
holidays, and special events. With the enhanced Time Clock they can also manage
the building calendar separate from the rules that operate the building.
(Definitions for standard U.S. holidays are also now included.)
Available in six new languages (Danish, Hebrew, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese,
and Swedish), Fusion EM unifies all environmental systems on a single platform
and provides valuable analytics and reporting of real-time and historical
energy usage, enabling facilities managers to make intelligent and informed
energy saving decisions.
