Software platform allows event scheduling software to integrate with HVAC systems
Richmond, Virginia – January 11, 2011 – Tridium, Inc., the global leader in software frameworks, automation infrastructure technology, and energy management and device-to-enterprise integration solutions announced today that ServiceU Corporation, a leading software development company, selected the NiagaraAX Framework® as the technology platform for EventU™ Green, its event management tool that automates heating and air conditioning schedules.
As a NiagaraAX Certified Developer, ServiceU has developed EventU™ Green as an add-on to the company’s EventU™ system, the complete online solution for scheduling and managing events for large multi-purpose facilities such as churches, schools, and civic centers since 1999.
When an organization’s staff adds, changes, or deletes event schedules and room reservations in EventU, EventU Green then automatically updates the NiagaraAX schedules. Staff members no longer need to contact the facility manager every time an HVAC schedule change needs to be made. This enables the facility manager to focus on more important duties and yet still gives the facility manager complete visibility and control of schedules through NiagaraAX. The HVAC schedules can now be controlled much more tightly and accurately, resulting in significant savings in energy costs.
“By integrating with NiagaraAX, EventU Green now has the ability to work with virtually any modern HVAC system regardless of manufacturer,” says Tim Whitehorn, Chief Executive Officer of ServiceU. “We are very excited that this integration will allow more organizations to take advantage of the cost and time saving benefits that EventU Green delivers.”
“EventU Green serves as an excellent example of the development capabilities of Niagara,” said Marc Petock, vice president, global marketing and communications for Tridium. “The Niagara Framework provides an innovative and cost effective solution that will be completely compatible and interoperable with any of today’s HVAC systems.”
