Powered by the Fast Site SurveyTM app, EMPEQ’s newest technology allows remote equipment audits amid evolving COVID-19 concerns and emerging hybrid/remote workforces. 

ITHACA, N.Y. ‒ EMPEQ, a software development and financial technology company serving the commercial HVAC, energy engineering, and building equipment industries, today announces Virtual Site Survey, the newest feature of its Fast Site Survey™ suite of technologies. Powered by AI and remote viewing technology, Virtual Site Survey allows energy efficiency professionals to conduct remote building surveys and audits amid the continued spread of COVID-19.

“The pandemic showed all of us that the workplace of 2022 needs to be flexible. Especially during the renewed spread of COVID-19 in recent weeks, it’s important to give employees the tools they need to operate safely, efficiently, and, most importantly, as a unit—no matter where they’re located,” said Herbert Dwyer, CEO of EMPEQ. “Our Virtual Site Survey capability adds an invaluable tool to the Fast Site Survey app— giving energy industry professionals the ability to perform crucial audits even if they can’t be physically on site and allowing auditing and reporting to continue under practically all conditions.”

Virtual Site Survey is the latest tool to help contractors, engineers, and building owners safely complete routine industrial and commercial building audits amid the continued spread of COVID-19 and evolving pandemic-related safety measures. The remote viewing technology allows engineers to perform multiple site surveys from a remote, centralized location and requires only a smartphone and network connection. This reduces the number of people needed on site to complete an audit—keeping both engineers and their customers safer during uncertain times.

Virtual Site Survey provides further utility to EMPEQ’s Fast Site Survey app and its users with:

  • Improved onboarding, allowing younger and entry-level employees to locate and capture important equipment while senior engineers perform  data modeling and report generation from a remote location.
  • Social distancing compliance based on business, city, or regional requirements.
  • Reduced travel costs by sending fewer engineers and/or contractors to a site, for a shorter amount of time, lowering audit overhead, emissions, and health concerns.
  • Increased safety for employees and building occupants by lowering on-site exposure times.
  • AI-powered data capture and reporting using EMPEQ’s Fast Site Survey app, which reduces equipment audit time up to 80%.
  • Option for customer performed audits through the easy to use app which eliminates most, if not all, travel costs and health risks during the pandemic.
