With a world growing more conscious of sustainability, organizations are looking for more ways to reduce energy usage and lower spending on electricity, natural gas, water, and other utilities.

Unfortunately, many leaders lack a reliable way to view their utility data and miss opportunities to address inefficiencies, establish a plan for change, and validate improvements.

Utility tracking with FMX allows facility leaders to input their billing data, review automated reports, and follow sustainability checklists to improve their visibility, inform decision making and ultimately lower their utility spending.

The system is configurable, allowing you to track utilities in a way that fits the needs of your organization.

For example, when setting a new utility tracking schedule, I can select a utility type from a drop-down list and change these options as necessary.

I have the flexibility to total my utility bills for the entire facility or break it down by building or location to track those meters separately.

Once I have my schedule set up, I can see them all listed here and filter them down to only what’s relevant.

When it’s time to enter a new bill, FMX will send me a reminder and I can come in and execute the occurrence.

If you prefer to enter multiple bills at once, you can also do so through our bulk imports feature.

When entering a bill, you can control which data you would like to track, unique to each utility type.

So for example, if I didn’t care about supply costs or distribution costs, I can remove them. And if I wanted to add a catch-all usage cost field I can add that in.

You can see as data is entered into the system, formulas run in the background to calculate important metrics, saving time having to enter them in manually.

To catch any typos, an error message can be triggered if the entry is outside of a normal range, allowing me to correct the mistake.

Once you begin recording bills, all these data points can be displayed in automatically generated reports to review, export, and share with other stakeholders.

These reports can show cost data like total cost, cost per day, or cost per square foot, which is a wonderful metric to have when planning a utility budget for a new construction project.

I can even see how these costs compare to other operating costs, such as maintenance, cleaning, labor, and inventory.

These reports can also show performance to benchmark utility usage from building to building or against industry standards.

Drill down into your reports to focus on a particular utility or an underperforming building.

See trends over time to spot changes and measure improvements.

For example, I can see the drop in energy usage here when we switched to a new lighting system.

To help improve sustainability best practices, FMX can also help track activities like closing procedures on holidays or off-seasons.

Schedule them on a regular basis and provide a set checklist of steps to ensure you are doing everything you can to lower your footprint and spending.
