cKenney’s completed a pilot project to upgrade an energy monitoring system at Macy’s stores nationwide.

THE CHALLENGE

Macy’s had an existing Tridium Niagara R2 platform for energy management in place that monitored everything from space temperature and light status to water use and trash compactors. When

Macy’s decided to upgrade to the latest Tridium AX technology, McKenney’s conducted a pilot to show the retailer it could seamlessly import critical data into the AX platform while duplicating existing R2 functionality.

THE SOLUTION

The McKenney’s team developed custom software tools and unique code to automate the conversion of store databases while maintaining existing data

integrity. This customization ensured that no functionality was lost while also providing updated capabilities and higher levels of data assurance. In addition, the McKenney’s team enhanced Macy’s data analytics capabilities.

THE RESULTS

Due to the success of the pilot and procedures established, a full-scale AX upgrade is now underway at all 800-plus Macy’s stores.
