- Assetcare™ deployed at 24 Cinemark Locations
VANCOUVER, Sept. 6, 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, is pleased to announce that Cinemark, a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry and a strategic mCloud customer, is adding nine new locations and more than 230 rooftop HVAC units in Illinois to be managed by AssetCareTM. Earlier in 2018, mCloud enrolled nearly 400 of Cinemark's HVAC units onto the AssetCareTM platform in Southern California.
mCloud and Cinemark have partnered to implement AssetCareTM with support from a ComEd utility incentive program, which ensures accurate measurement of baseline performance and verification of energy savings. AssetCareTM starts with an assessment of each HVAC unit to identify energy savings measures and evaluate retrofit opportunities. mCloud will equip mechanical service partners with diagnostic tools and software to inspect Cinemark's HVAC units, including refrigeration cycle performance.
"Cinemark is dedicated to consistently delivering an exceptional guest experience, including a comfortable temperature within our theaters, which relies upon the efficiency and effectiveness of our HVAC systems," stated Art Justice, Cinemark's VP of Energy & Sustainability. "We are greatly looking forward to working with mCloud to further enhance our HVAC functionality, generate incremental energy savings, and advance our environmental sustainability."
Dave Weinerth, mCloud's President of Smart Buildings added, "Cinemark leads the industry with exceptional energy management and we are excited to partner with a company whose goals and objectives align with our vision and trajectory. We are extremely pleased to extend AssetCareTM to more than 600 total Cinemark HVAC units across the U.S., broadening our total impact on the performance of more than 20,000 total assets expected by year end."
