ENERGY COST REDUCTION
In recent years, like other retail companies Bank of Ireland have focused on outsourcing of facilities management in order to reduce cost, however energy has remained an un-managed cost. Investments in bank energy monitoring and analysis will increase the effectiveness of business operation activities. A target of €450,000 is savings bank energy monitoring was set for the first year.
Bank energy monitoring: 8-10% Energy Savings & 92% ROI in 1st year

Utility cost management:
Bank of Ireland required a system that provides continuous detail on actual electricity, gas, water and oil use. For the reason that this allows reconciliation against bills received, identifying discrepancies, ensuring BoI pay only for what they use.
To maintain top-level support and service expected of a world-class financial institution in certain areas such as banking, where security and safekeeping are absolutely essential, it was important to be able to count on guaranteed reliability, robustness and efficiency.
