Banyan Water Central 4.0
What the Judges Said…
“Banyan Water Central 4.0 makes a relatively complex activity — saving water — visible and actionable. The quantity of water and money saved speaks for itself.”
Banyan Water Central 4.0 is a water-saving software platform that tracks, analyzes, and optimizes water use for commercial, institutional, and industrial properties. BWC provides a holistic view into how water is flowing throughout a property.
The platform can detect water movement, visualize metering data in an easy-to-understand hierarchical format, calculate water costs and savings with a rate engine, provide real-time access to water data and reports through the BWC portal. It alerts to leaks, anomalies, and utility costs in real time. Banyan Water Central 4.0 also has budget forecasting tools and capital expenditure improvement tracking software.
The company says that results for customers include decreased water bills, improved manufacturing processes, accurate sustainability reporting, increased asset value, LEED certification points, Energy Star awards, and BOMA awards.
BWC software integrates with IoT devices on a property and can accommodate multiple water use insights based on a customer’s needs, including property dashboards displaying the past month’s water use, comparisons with last year’s water use, and meter comparison for sites with multiple meters to break down where water is being used on the property more easily. Bill data comparison shows billing data from a specified period such as dollars and kilogallons used.
Users can access images of their water bills for review as well as interactive property maps for both indoor and outdoor water usage. The company says that BWC 4.0 accommodates real-time indoor water use, mapping, and leak detection as well as cooling tower optimization, water bill archiving, water budgeting and forecasting, and visualization into manufacturing processes.
Banyan Water says that their customers have saved over 2.7 billion gallons of water and created over $15 million in asset value as a result of using the software. The company adds that the software also provides much-needed visibility into metering data for more accurate reporting and forecasting, enabling customers to make data-driven decisions about water savings and track results in real time.
