What is Encompass Blue? (EB)Encompassing People and Buildings
Encompass Blue (EB) is an enhanced online platform for virtual monitoring and control of buildings, maintenance, facilities, spaces, health, wellbeing, safety and security.
Built with the client in mind, this platforms enables facility & operational managers and owners to drill into components of their facility or space, to make informed decisions that affect the wellbeing, productivity, and safety of people, while driving down resource costs. If knowledge is power, Encompass Blue is a lightning rod to capture and analyse the data making you more effective.

Traditional Systems vs EB
Several years ago, Building Management Systems BMS/BAS and SCADA were the leading–edge tools that measured basic data points and managed building systems. However, these were kept to a minimum and used to do the basic automation due to the high cost, even today at $600 to $900 per data point.
Furthermore, these systems were never designed to handle the increasing complexity of distributed optimisation and the extreme volume of data involved. They are also cumbersome and expensive to program with most being highly proprietary and closed systems.
