    It was a solid tool for energy management at a reasonable price.

    Pros

    The software is quite easy to use with some really powerful apps. The app we use the most is the heatmap analysis. The allows use to see energy demand data on an hourly basis for an entire year (impressive right). Overall a really good tool to look at and view "big-data" for energy management.

    Cons

    The software support team has had quite a bit of turnover which has created a little frustration about not knowing who our support person should be. Also, the costs have gone up a bit in recent years which has also created a little bit of frustration.

    Maintenance proactivity, public display of sustainability.

    Pros

    It allows us to show the public the different things we are trying to do to maintain our LEED accreditation and lets them see our meters real time. It helps with maintenance because if a person sees what they perceive is an issue they can bring it up to us so that we can investigate and possibly fix an issue that we missed. It gives us more eyes on how the building is performing and keeps us proactive instead of reactive.

    Cons

    We have had issues with the dashboard not receiving the meters all the time. Multiple times lucid has changed the IP addresses that they are using and due to our IT rules we can't change on the fly. We don't give out a range of IP addresses rather we use very specific addresses for security purposes. We are able to straighten out the issue in a relatively short period of time and get everything working again.

    The company really provides customer services before and after implementation.

    Pros

    The dashboards they have available make it simple to access the data that really matters, with a user very freindly layout.

    Cons

    The size of some of the font could be larger, other than that I just wish I had this organization way sooner

    BuildingOS has been a key part of Weber State's energy savings efforts, helping us reduce costs by 44%.

    Pros

    The front end is very intuitive and can convey a lot of information without a lot of useless nonsense. I particularly use the comparisons, trending, and heat map applications a lot. It allows us to identify opportunities for energy savings.

    Cons

    Companies like Lucid seem to have a high turnover rate for employees - I am not sure if this is a generational thing or what, but in the past two or three years I've had three or four points of contact. It makes it hard to build personal relationships with someone who actually has a knowledge of my needs.
