"Norland Managed Services engaged Operational Intelligence to assist in delivering a cross functional energy efficiency and risk training program at a large enterprise data centre. The programme consisted of theory and practice based workshops delivered in an open and inclusive environment and was attended by both Critical Environments and IT Personnel in an attempt to foster an integrated approach to energy efficiency. We found the program to be hugely beneficial in educating operational teams about energy drivers, risk profiling, process improvement and energy cost savings. As a result the programme delivered significant financial savings and promoted greater team integration and communication. Operational Intelligence was key in delivering these results through their bespoke approach to operational learning, the development of intuitive measurement tools and metrics and the engagement with program attendees. Norland look forward to developing further targeted training programs with Operational Intelligence over the coming months."
"Really good to have so many people from different disciplines and roles together to find out how each other works, get different ideas and ways of thinking about things."
"I found the concept difficult to grasp but when I witnessed the process at first hand, it was as if someone had turned a bright light on. A must have for anyone who is serious about reducing risk and improving energy efficiency."
"I would just like to say thank you for a very informative afternoon. It was enjoyable, and pitched at the right level for us non facilities people and demonstrated to me how easy it could be to resolve our issues. A little appliance of science in the right areas, obviously works wonders."
"It’s great seeing the whole process tie together and see what the energy savings are and can be made together with the culmination of the final presentation should make for an impressive conclusion of the groups findings to management."
"I'm proud to be part of your team."
"It opened our eyes to many things we took for granted."
