Transform your manufacturing site for peak performance
Trusted by the world’s leading manufacturers
The Manufacturing Challenge
Operating large manufacturing sites efficiently and sustainably is a challenge. Ever-increasing operational costs, limited capital expenditure and unplanned downtime can add to an already hectic schedule. Then you have:
- Rising energy costs
- Aggressive, publicly quoted CO2 reduction targets
- Difficulty tracking and improving contractor performance
However, solving these issues is easier than you think, and your untapped data is the key. CIM’s analytics platform goes beyond the capacity of your BMS to find issues with pinpoint accuracy while monitoring your site’s performance and helping you achieve sustainability goals.
Use existing data to reduce energy
Your manufacturing site is a gold mine of unused data. Most BMS systems are not built to analyse your plant and equipment data in a meaningful way, so it lies dormant and untapped.
CIM’s analytics platform intelligently unlocks insights from your existing site data. Using market-leading fault detection, machine learning and diagnosis software, you can reduce energy costs, CO2 and meet sustainability targets.
We offer a low-risk financial model with no upfront costs, additional metering or lock-in contracts. Just click the button below to request a call back.
“The building management system represented dark data for us. I never had the ability or resources to dive in under the hood. CIM unlocks the data from our BMS and other sources, applies building analytics across it and provides us with the performance and engineering insights we need to implement operational improvements really quickly and without any capital outlay.”
Why choose CIM?
Improve site efficiency to increase profits
On manufacturing sites where profitability is tied to cost per item made, everything needs to operate as reliably and efficiently as possible to reduce operational expenditure and drive down item costs.
PEAK helps you unlock operational and energy savings within six to eight weeks by optimising the efficiency of your HVAC systems, then continuously monitoring and verifying these savings for you.
Achieve environmental commitments and building standards
PEAK helps you meet your corporate sustainability goals and CO2 reduction targets by reducing the carbon footprint of your manufacturing site and improving its environmental performance. You can use PEAK to ensure site compliance with building or energy management standards such as LEED, WELL, GRESB, BREEAM and ISO50001.
Smarter capital expenditure decisions
Capital expenditure decisions should be based on fact-based insights, not manufacturer recommendations. PEAK helps you resolve HVAC issues in real time and ensure optimal equipment performance, leading to longer asset life cycles. Spend less on fixing and replacing non-core equipment and systems to allocate more of your capital expenditure budget to upgrades of critical production equipment instead.
Smart, simple solutions
CIM’s building analytics solution provides a simple, smart and transparent way to operate large sites at their peak performance. The PEAK platform provides a low-risk, low-cost strategy to lift site performance quickly and easily by making smarter use of existing data to optimize HVAC equipment.
- Delivers speed to value with no upfront costs
- Dedicated 24×7 technical engineering support for every site
- “Best in Class” root-cause detection, analysis and resolution
Optimize your manufacturing site’s performance
CIM’s PEAK platform simplifies and accelerates the end-to-end process of fault detection, diagnosis and problem resolution.
Automatically collects and continuously monitors live and historical building data from your building management system (BMS) and HVAC equipment and sensors including chillers, boilers, air handling units, fan coil units and cooling towers.
Aggregates this information into a uniform and transparent dataset then applies rules-based algorithms across it, customised for your site, to pinpoint, highlight and prioritise HVAC system and equipment inefficiencies in real-time.
A team of mechanical, mechatronic and electrical engineers help you prioritise, understand and implement PEAK’s insights to optimise equipment performance. CIM’s collaborative and transparent end-to-end process helps you achieve faster and smarter outcomes to optimise your site and set a new benchmark in operational and sustainability practices.
CIM looked at 4 key challenges for the manufacturing industry and outlined how the PEAK Platform could solve these.

How CIM benefits you
Reduce energy consumption
By implementing CIM’s building analytics, you can reduce energy consumption across critical utilities by up to 40% and often within six months. We achieve this by using proven technology to develop actionable insights from existing system data.
Our remote Customer Success team then works closely with your on-site operations leads to help get these insights resolved. This delivers the fastest, most cost-efficient way of achieving energy/cost/CO2 reduction on your site.
Meet your sustainability targets
Large facilities and buildings waste up to 20% of their energy every day. More than this, they account for 30-40% of global greenhouse gas emissions during a time of environmental uncertainty. Degraded, malfunctioning and poorly tuned heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment accounts for the majority of this waste.
Governments, investors and stakeholders are emphasising sustainability like never before. However, rising to this challenge does not need to be expensive or time-consuming. CIM’s PEAK building analytics platform works with your building management system (BMS) to quickly identify, and act on, energy saving opportunities.
It does this by unlocking historical data and analysing real-time statistics. PEAK has already helped our clients reduce CO2 emissions equal to 25,823 passenger cars driving for one year. PEAK also makes reporting on sustainability targets easy; ESG and CSR managers can track progress and report on targets with just a few clicks.
Increase the lifespan of your critical equipment
Take a facts-based management approach to your manufacturing site’s operations and maximize savings and profits across the lifespan of your critical plant equipment.
CIM’s PEAK platform pinpoints risks and opportunities, protects improvements made and subsequent savings through continuous monitoring. Better performing manufacturing facilities with lower net operating costs and impressive sustainability metrics help you hit your targets and reduce operational expenditure.
Reducing unnecessary spend is high on the agenda when clients speak to us. By leveraging building intelligence, machine learning and technical engineering, the PEAK platform ensures the energy consumed by your building is used as cost-efficiently as possible, and with zero-waste. This results in significant savings by increasing the lifespan of your building’s equipment, reducing maintenance costs and decreasing upgrade expenses.
But, PEAK is more than an award-winning building analytics platform, you also get 24/7 support from CIM’s data-scientists and technical engineers. Expertise to help you achieve reduced OPEX and CAPEX. Decisions that result in higher asset valuations and healthier quarterly reports. What’s more, you can easily measure and report on your quarterly savings with the Economic Impact Tracker contained within the PEAK platform. Running a cost-efficient site has never been easier.
