Kontrol Energy Expands IoT Technology Solutions to Global Asset and Facilities Management

TORONTO, March 18, 2019 - Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE: KNR, OTCQB: KNRLF, FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or "Company") announces expansion of its current IoT Technology solutions into the global Asset and Facilities Management industry.

Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol Energy commented: “Predictive maintenance and real-time management of equipment, energy assets and facilities is a rapidly growing global market which will be part of our organic growth in 2019 and beyond.” Mr. Ghezzi continued: “We are pleased to start working with organizations that manage millions of square feet of commercial and industrial facilities. This vertical has the potential to be a source of significant growth for Kontrol.”  

Kontrol’s IoT Technology

Facilities and asset optimization driven by smart IoT hardware and software is much broader than energy savings initiatives alone. Kontrol’s technology advancement will allow the Company to deliver end-to-end facilities management to our customers such as real-time building data management, centralized asset performance, fault detection, predictive analytics and corrective workflow.

Paul Ghezzi went on to state: “Following our acquisition of the SmartSite® Software as a Service (SaaS) platform in 2018, we have been actively developing smart-learning and predictive intelligence enhancements.  Through thousands of connected devices spread across an entire facility with each device reporting in real-time our Customers gain immediate visibility over the work environment to improve decision making and address operational efficiencies.”

The benefits of Kontrol’s IoT technology delivered in real-time include streamlined manufacturing processes, workforce efficiency, longer asset life, enhanced energy savings, operating cost reduction and labor optimization.

What is Driving Global Growth in Asset and Facilities Management

Traditionally, building automation and facility management have been independent of each other resulting in significant operational inefficiencies. As organizations seek to increase productivity and improve profitability, choosing a Solutions Provider with proven smart and predictive technologies coupled with IoT and data analytics is critical to achieving these goals. According to Research and Markets, the Facilities Management  global market size was USD 34.65 Billion in 2018 and will grow to USD 59.33 Billion by 2023, a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.4%.  The major growth factors include the development of sustainable infrastructure, and the adoption of IoT and connected devices for building automation across industry verticals. Moreover, there is an increasing need to meet environmental and regulatory compliance.
