Our solutions

We aim to develop pioneering software solutions for Smart Buildings and Smart Cities in addition to offering infrastructure management, automation and asset optimisation for global enterprise.

Vision Center

Vision Center is an Enterprise Software Platform providing remote monitoring and control of multiple facilities and their related assets, with an aim to reduce energy use and operational costs. The system optimises asset efficiency and extends asset lifetimes. 

The platform unlocks 24/7 surveillance across multiple assets, buildings and facilities, delivering scalable and centralised efficiencies in business costs. Asset performance is consistently measured and compared with standards to identify and eradicate gaps.

The development process follows Critical Software’s Integrated Management System (IMS) which is certified against ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System) – securing development against well recognised regulations. 

Additionally, the platform includes a productive and resource-rich project engineering suite: Vision Center Engineering. This sophisticated toolbox provides a 40% reduction in engineering resources, while significantly reducing project development and commissioning times.

Managed Services

Verticalla's Managed Services offer asset and energy data on an industry normalised platform. This allows users at various levels and departments to access summary information through real-time dashboards and reports. The normalisation of information enables fast, simple scaling aligned with industry and corporate standards, while the system notifies users of any deviation and corrective actions in the process.

Managed Energy Services offer accelerated identification and qualification of energy conservation measures through automated monitoring of consumption trend, equipment performance and benchmarking. This results in quick returns and increased business value for shareholders.

These services include:

  • Audits and energy usages carried out by our smart building experts
  • Measurement and verification baselines of facility consumptions.
  • Reports on operational cost saving opportunities: optimising settings, equipment parameters, implementation and control of best practices; fast ROI implementation of simple control equipment or complementary equipment, e.g. timers or door covers on refrigerated cabinets; selection of equipment replacement based on ROI, including LED based lighting, more efficient refrigeration cabinets or production systems.
  • Benchmarking between sites and international standards.
  • Deployment of data access technologies to multiple sites across the world, covering installation; commissioning; project management; specific assets; and systems integration.
  • Continuous analysis and delivery of energy conservation measures through automated reports and expert surveillance.
