Frost & Sullivan Recognizes the Unique Value Provided by Tridium Inc. to Customers in the Integrated Building Systems and Services Market

Highly Versatile Niagara and Sedona Platforms Offer Benefits of Enhanced Operational Efficiency, Cost and Energy Savings

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - Based on its recent analysis of the integrated building systems and services market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Tridium Inc. with the 2011 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement. The company's success stems from its unique product platform and its ability to work with customers to deliver distinguishing value enhancements.

Tridium's highly versatile integration platforms promote the seamless working of built environments, offering real customer value. With the flexibility and power of the Niagara and Sedona platforms, Tridium continues to expand on its vision of interoperability and machine-to-machine, machine-to-mobile, and mobile-to-machine (M2M) communication.

"Tridium's Niagara and Sedona platforms capitalize on energy savings and cost effectiveness, while offering a tailored package solution with unique features that yield measurable returns," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Konkana Khaund. "Tridium provides customers with the technology to operate on a single, unified platform and the tools to easily integrate data, improve efficiency, and save on costs."

Data on heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, parking lots, electricity, security, access control, and many other building devices and systems has, until recently, been completely isolated. Flexible and open integration platforms that seamlessly work with existing proprietary systems architecture of a building have been virtually non-existent.

With Tridium's solutions, these devices and systems can now be aggregated to one central monitoring station with remote, real-time capabilities, easy data access through the Internet, and simplified interoperability and integration between building infrastructures for better performance and operational costs.

Based on the principle of M2M interconnection, the Niagara and Sedona solutions from Tridium allow users to access information and receive alerts regarding critical situations and then control and manipulate variables on dispersed machine assets via a computer or personal digital assistant (PDA) device.

"This holistic monitoring and reporting allows building managers to proactively monitor building components and provide immediate assistance with routine, as well as condition-based, problems," elaborates Khaund. "In addition, Tridium's technology enables organizations to implement both predictive and preventative programs based on real time data and situations."

Consequently, Tridium's clientele, which includes a wide cross-section of building owners, facility managers, C-level officials, and strategic product developers, has the ability to fully maximize the diversity of Tridium's IP-based enterprise to create and enhance products that bring business value.

"Tridium's unique solutions offer a range of unparalleled benefits to users including real-time monitoring and reporting capabilities, energy, maintenance, and operational cost savings as well as lower lifetime operating costs," concludes Khaund. "In addition, they represent future-proof integration platforms that support utmost compatibility with third-party systems."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. This award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and ultimately customer base expansion.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
