Bractlet, an Austin, Texas-based smart building software company, has launched its tiered Bractlet Intelligence Platform, a software and intelligence solution for commercial real estate owners.
The new offerings complement the company’s existing Bractlet Simulation product and make it easier for customers to experience the Intelligence Platform based on their individual needs and budgetary requirements, Bractlet said.
Bractlet said that its three-tiered Bractlet Intelligence Platform includes:
-Bractlet Benchmark – Benchmark digitally “collects, processes and stores utility and weather data and features tools for forecasting utility costs.” It provides building owners and their property teams energy efficiency benchmarks versus comparable buildings in location, size and utilization and manages building performance data and information needed to support ESG efforts, including Energy Star, GRESB and LEED certifications, according to the company.
-Bractlet Analytics- Analytics includes the functions of the Benchmark tier and adds in the collection of real-time building automation system (BAS), utility meter and optional equipment power meter data for in-depth building performance monitoring and demand management. It enables property managers and building engineers to visualize real time, zone and equipment-level analysis and diagnostics, Bractlet said. Comfort, equipment operation and energy consumption notifications for deviations from expected performance and prescriptive actions also are included, which leads to enhanced tenant work environments and reduced operating costs, according to the company.
Bractlet Simulation (includes all the functionality of Bractlet Benchmark and Bractlet Analytics) – Bractlet Simulation models a building’s unique design characteristics, utilization and environmental conditions to create a “digital energy twin.” This simulation forecasts how a building should perform, accounting for variances in occupancy, weather, BAS control settings and more. It also identifies and evaluates options to upgrade and modernize a building’s infrastructure for projects ranging from existing system optimizations to those requiring capital investment, the company said.
Bractlet is currently offering risk free trials of its Bractlet Intelligence Platform during the pandemic to qualified customers.
Based in Austin, Texas, Bractlet is a smart building software company that analyzes office buildings holistically and provides owners with tailored solutions to enhance building performance, reduce energy use and operating costs.
