How Virgin-Active saved over 1000kl monthly
Case Study : Utility Management
Smart-View Industrial Utility solution is uniquely designed to assist organizations in accurately monitoring & manage water consumption. This increases profitability and ensures minimum impact on the environment and our people.
After the drought, Virgin-Active stayed committed to setting an example and undertook extensive measures to save water. At the same time, they were continuing to maintain operations after the water-scarce conditions and austere restrictions sustainably. The Smart-View solution enabled Virgin-Active to identify their overall consumption and pinpoint when and where usage was excessive to implement opportunities to save.
Virgin-Active installed IoT devices developed by Visiosoft powered by Smart-View Technology that enabled Virgin-Active to understand their water usage patterns. Virgin-Active could set a baseline threshold for each gym and monitor water usage during non-operational hours using this data. This also helped discover leaks & inefficiencies that were not evident before.
- The implementation led to an impressive initial cost saving, amounting to over 1000 kiloliters within the first month of operation
- The identification and rectification of anomalies such as leaks and bursts facilitated substantial cost savings, reinforcing the importance of proactive utility management
- Through vigilant monitoring and effective management of water consumption, the gym has made significant strides towards reducing its environmental footprint, marking a noteworthy achievement in sustainability
- The platform has provided Virgin Active with a robust reporting mechanism that facilitates progress tracking against their water consumption goals. Additionally, it serves as a tangible demonstration of their sustainability efforts, providing credible evidence to stakeholders
As a market-leading global health clubs, Virgin- Active always try to stay ahead of the curve using the best technology partners, not only to provide value to their customers but also being conscious about their impact on the planet and people.
