Work Requests Created from Energy Manager O&M Activities

The Energy Manager and Asset Essentials integration will allow Energy Manager O&M Activities to be submitted as Asset Essentials Work Requests. This allows for a more efficient process to ensure your facility maintains peak energy efficiency. An O&M activity must be created in Energy Manager in order for it to be submitted as a work request in Asset Essentials. *Note: Only certain clients are eligible for this integration. To learn if you are eligible, contact Client Services.
