Selex ES, a global technology company owned by Finmeccanica, announces plans to exhibit at the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference/Exposition, NFMTVegas, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, September 17 – 18, 2013, as well as at the International Facility Management Association’s IFMA Workplace 2013 conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, October 2 – 4. Selex ES will be promoting its new software, Di-BOSS™, a next-generation, intelligent digital building operating system solution that optimizes energy performance to save money and increase building system reliability and security without sacrificing tenant comfort.
Since its launch this summer at Realcomm’s Intelligent Buildings conference (IBCon 2013), Di-BOSS’s innovative, energy saving and cost saving facility management capabilities have captured the attention of industry leaders. “Di-BOSS takes smart building operation and management to a new level,” says Bruce Sher, Sr. Vice President, Commercial Development at Selex ES. In addition to real-time commissioning of subsystem data, Di-BOSS offers two unique capabilities: it tracks occupancy and it shares energy consumption data with tenants who use the information to affect their own energy savings and cost savings efforts. “The benefits Di-BOSS provides go far beyond optimized energy efficiency and cost savings to include situational awareness and predictive analysis, building load optimization, and increased safety, comfort, and tenant retention,” Sher says.
Between them, NFMTVegas and IFMA Workplace 2013 attract several thousand facility managers and decision makers directly involved in the purchase of smart building technologies. “Di-BOSS offers indisputable solutions and capabilities for any commercial building owner or operator concerned with the high cost of energy, sustainability, and tenant retention,” says Sher. “These two trade show venues will be key for demonstrating the power of Di-BOSS.”
The development of Di-BOSS was a collaborative effort by the integrated systems specialists at Selex ES, elite research scientists and engineers at Columbia University, and building operations experts at Rudin Management Company, one of the largest privately held property management companies in NYC. The Di-BOSS system was designed organically “from the engine room out” and successfully piloted in two of Rudin’s largest commercial properties in NYC.
