Audit Software Can Almost Completely Automate Your Commercial LED Lighting Audit
We look at how energy audit softwarecould be the number one competitive edge for your LED lighting retrofit work.
So your client is going green (or whatever color they want their lights to be) and you’ve got your big LED lighting audit to organize. Ordinarily, here’s what you’d need to get started:
- 4 pencils
- 2 reams of paper
- 3 notebooks
- 1 project management qualification
- Knowledge of optics, electrical
engineering and design
- Some screws to stop your head from
We kid of course, but a commercial LED lighting audit is a
big job with many moving parts and many people trying to move those parts. With
this complexity comes a lot of things that can go wrong, and it can be daunting
for even seasoned lighting professionals. Even the overwhelming benefits of a commercial LED lighting retrofit
can seem not worth it in the face of the sheer complexity of a lighting audit.
There is however a modern solution at hand in
the form of automation. This doesn’t quite mean robots will screw the
lightbulbs in for you, but it does mean the normally complex lighting audit processes
can be simplified in almost every aspect of a commercial LED lighting retrofit.
Let’s have a look at some of the ways energy audit automation
can help with the common problems of a commercial LED lighting retrofit. Note, for the
purposes of this article, we use the terms “energy audit” and “lighting audit” interchangeably.
- Eliminates mistakes and inaccuracies – No
illegible handwriting, no bad photocopies or faxes; all information is typed
out and available for review by all involved – instantly.
- Increased productivity – Our app provides you
with predefined selections for lighting that suit your existing fittings. That
means no guessing as we have already done the work to determine the best
lighting solutions for your unique needs.
- Easily integrate on-site photographs – All
photos are stored in the lighting
audit app (and cloud)
automatically, and assigned to their respective sectors and fittings- that
means no missing email attachments or incomprehensible filenames.
- Multiple auditors can work on the same project – With everything safely centralized in the cloud, multiple auditors
(from anywhere in the world) can drop in on any job to check progress. No
missed emails and no lost communications.
- Look good in front of the client – Showing a
client your comprehensive, automated energy audit system from a tablet is a heck of a lot more
impressive than your chicken scratch on a notepad. It also exponentially aids in helping your
client visualise the changes from their LED lighting retrofit. 
- Allows multiple stakeholders to participate for consistency – Everyone in the energy
audit chain can participate – suppliers, consultants and contractors all
have input, meaning nobody in the audit chain gets those unpleasant surprises.
This full engagement from all parties allows for consistency and transparency
throughout every audit.
- Eliminates the need for clipboards, notepads and pencils – This improved, automated energy audit software all fits in your pocket on your mobile
phone or tablet. All information is stored securely in the cloud ensuring no
loss of work from a misplaced handwritten page.
- Frees up senior staff to do their job – The lighting audit software
is so easy to use and does so much of the hard work for you that your more
experienced staff can be freed up to ensure your business is run smoothly.
- Above all, it saves time and money – the summation of these benefits is simply a
huge saving in time and expenditure. There’s simply no better way to go about a
commercial LED lighting
