Recent digital innovations can help retailers on a very practical level to more effectively maintain their estates, freeing up valuable time and resources to further improve efficiencies and enhance in-store experiences for customers.
As a digital technology, LED lighting can be combined with lighting controls, to harness data and enable smart decision making. With a networked lighting controls system, retailers can monitor the health of an estate and ensure maintenance is planned efficiently. For example, control gear is the Achilles’ heel of a luminaire, but, in a given situation, is it better to opt for spot replacement or a mass refit? Having the data to hand showing how many fixtures are on their last legs enables customers to make better decisions. And, importantly results in a reduction in operational costs.
Lighting control systems such as Envision Manager also give the location of a luminaire, allowing maintenance teams clear guidance on what needs to be repaired and the components required for the job. What’s more, remote testing can now ensure emergency lighting systems are fully operational.
When looking to optimise operational efficiencies do not under estimate what lighting controls systems can do for your business.
