VANCOUVER, Sept. 17, 2018 /CNW/ - Universal mCloud Corp. (TSX-V: MCLD; OTCQB: MCLDF) ("mCloud" or the "Company"), a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence and Analytics ("AI&A") and IoT-connected asset care technology, announced a new report published today by ARC Advisory Group that highlights mCloud's AssetCare™ platform as a winning energy management solution for companies both large and small.
In particular, the report captures mCloud's broad spectrum integration of the cloud, IoT-connected thermostats, and AI/machine learning to deliver peak energy efficiency improvements of 20% to the overwhelming majority of the small-to-medium sized businesses they serve. Traditionally, such businesses have avoided the large upfront investments required to integrate conventional energy management systems.
"The mCloud AssetCare offering provides a cloud based IoT solution that allows "small box" stores a low cost way to better manage their HVAC assets" said Rick Rys, Senior Consultant at ARC Advisory Group.
The ARC report further describes the mCloud solution as a proverbial "win-win" for all, with mCloud's innovative zero-upfront subscription model guaranteeing operational savings for its customers while creating a highly scalable recurring revenue stream for mCloud. The report highlights the use of mCloud solutions at Starbucks, Bank of America, Dairy Queen, and Michaels among others, as ongoing evidence of mCloud's capacity to improve sustainability for a broad range of businesses while reducing operational costs.
"There are over ten million connectable assets within mCloud's reach," said Russel McMeekin, mCloud President and CEO. "Through our AssetCare offering, mCloud has eliminated the barriers to entry that were keeping many small-to-medium businesses from adopting better energy management systems. This is a captive market opportunity we're very excited to pursue."
mCloud will have more to share with customers, partners, investors, and the media at its inaugural mCloud Connect User Conference at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, September 24-26, 2018.
