Audrey from Tackleberry
Specialty: Apartments / Multi-family
Employees number: 11-50 employees
The company really provides customer services before and after implementation.
The dashboards they have available make it simple to access the data that really matters, with a user very freindly layout.
The size of some of the font could be larger, other than that I just wish I had this organization way sooner

Maintenance proactivity, public display of sustainability.
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.
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.
Justin from Weber State University
Employees number: 1,001-5,000 employees
BuildingOS has been a key part of Weber State's energy savings efforts, helping us reduce costs by 44%.
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.
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.
