SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--mCloud Corp., provider of AssetCare™ solutions for managing critical assets with secure mobile technology, announced today that it has acquired Field Diagnostics Services, Inc. (FDSI) enabling game changing Asset-Circle-of-Care for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) assets. FDSI pioneered deep diagnostics for HVAC equipment, including a breakthrough in HVAC Unit Coordination technology solely using smart thermostats, resulting in energy savings of 10% to 30%.
FDSI’s Google-based cloud platform will become the basis for mCloud’s AssetCare™ solutions that incorporates big data, deep analytics, machine learning, real-time collaboration and communications, 3D Augmented Reality (AR), best practice maintenance support and much more. The initial focus will be on the monitoring the performance of HVAC units and mid-size wind turbines. These will be extended to field service support, including real-time video communications with experts and access to complete equipment documentation. FDSI runs a 24/7 HVAC service support center for its customers.
The FDSI Google-based cloud platform is the evolution of patented developments stemming back to the founder’s research at Purdue University, with US Department of Energy sponsored projects, and embraced by numerous national account customers and several public utilities, mainly in California, who encourage their customers to deploy the technology to save energy and reduce peak demand. The underlying technology has been proven and used for many years.
AssetCare™ cloud is available for the care of HVAC units, and will be shortly available for mid-size wind turbines. Expected soon will be new capabilities that includes leading edge Augmented Reality (AR) technology with the highest mobile security standards.
“The FDSI technologies and capabilities provide mCloud with the proven foundation that brings together people, data and knowledge to improve the health and performance of critical assists,” said mCloud CEO Russ McMeekin. “Having partnered with FDSI for many years, I am excited about bringing our combined resources under mCloud to enhance the value we deliver to our customers.”
