Dubai – MENA Herald: Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities, environment and energy management solutions in the GCC, launches its Integrated Network Operations Centre (INOC) during its participation at the 2016 FM EXPO. The company also held a live demonstration of the centre to showcase remote management and monitoring of its customers’ sites and facilities. INOC is an intelligent command and control centre that is based on the Internet of Things (IoT) concept and developed jointly with Robotina, a Slovenia-based comprehensive automation solutions provider.
INOC intelligently analyses the performance trends of interconnected assets and correlates with the behaviour of the building’s eco-system to come up with a set of recommendations and corrective actions, which the system admin can applyautomatically or selectively. Its features include a cognitive computing platform, predictive maintenance capability, seamless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, automatic corrective measures, real-time monitoring and tracking of assets, and energy management.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “Imdaad unveiled one of its most ambitious projects – INOC – at the 2016 FM EXPO, reinforcing its support for green and sustainable development. Through this cutting-edge technology we will remotely manage all client facilities, thereby conserving energy, reducing carbon footprints, and bringing down operational cost to offer better value. Its other benefits include a healthier working and living environment, a better and greener building, and transparent contract reporting. While we are confident that environment- and cost- conscious customers who value their assets would take keen interest in this next-generation technology, our primary target sector remains commercial office buildings and industrial facilities.”
FM EXPO 2016, the Middle East’s largest facilities management event and part of the Community Management Week, will take place from May 23 to 25, 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Made completely from recycled items such as used pipes and recycled wood, Imdaad’s stand will be located at Z6F120. Khaddour, the fun-loving leaf character and the mascot of Imdaad’s flagship Be’ati initiative, will also be present at the stand to educate visitors about environmental sustainability. Additionally, there will be an automated HR kiosk, enabling employees to apply for leaves, process salary certificates and perform other HR related functions.
