CBAS Web was originally created in the early 2000s for tenants in commercial office buildings to utilize a web portal to schedule their overtime air and lighting. Today, overtime scheduling remains the platform’s main use, but it is capable of doing much more. This solution also allows web-based remote access to the full Computrols Building Automation Software system for building engineers, property managers, etc.
CBAS Web is intended to be a 100% web-based extension of our core software product. With separate user/password lists from the Computrols Building Automation Software, you can create an easy-to-use environment for people to interact with their Computrols Building Automation System and perform core tasks. While items like Graphics and Logical Groups can be imported from CBAS, users can also create their own views and dashboards that are independent from those in CBAS.
Storyboards enable facilities management teams to convey building data to their occupants while at the same time, educating them on what this information means. The Computrols team works closely with our customers to determine what information is most relevant and how to display it in a digestible format. Storyboards typically provide building occupants with a single, quantifiable metric for the passerby and a deeper dive into how that metric is calculated for those who want more detail. Whether it is progress on a construction project, energy consumption data, or indoor air quality measurements, Storyboards help you tell your building’s story to those who inhabit it on a daily basis.
Unlike many after-hours web platforms, CBAS Web is not sold as software as a service. The software and web interface live on a server that customers purchase and own, giving property managers a quicker return on their investment and an ongoing revenue source. We have also found that when switching to a web-based overtime system, overtime requests increase by approximately 20%.
CBAS Web’s overtime platform is able to integrate into third-party building automation systems (BAS) to measure HVAC, lighting, KWH, and BTU consumption and provide property management with automated invoices that include variable-rate billing and taxes. The end result of this automated service is increased tenant satisfaction and reduced operational costs.
No matter what kind of facility you manage, happy tenants and energy savings are always among the top of your concerns.
