Paperless Business Process Improvement

OST started to engage with LCS because their existing partner wasn’t providing the service they needed. Their partner hadn’t put the right processes and systems in place for them to make support requests, review the development progress as soon as the developers commited thier changes and the deployment processes were leading to unexpected downtime when software updates were pushed to employees. These are just a few examples of the problems that OST solved for LCS.

Energy Analytics Dashboard

Energy usage is exploding all over the world. Companies need visibility to their energy usage in order to make business decisions every day. Small tweaks and the optimization of a building’s energy usage can add up to big savings. Today, energy usage inside of most of the world’s buildings is not top of mind until the building is too hot or cold. The data that comes out of most energy systems is at the meter level. This is just data. Turning this data into information that people can understand and make decisions with is the challenge that our client was resolute to solve.
