“LEAKY BUCKETS”: SWITCH AUTOMATION’S CEO ON HELPING COMPANIES TO CREATE SMART BUILDINGS

Having recently closed a US$3.8m Series A round led by Allectus Capital, Switch Automation is now – in the words of co-founder and CEO Deb Noller – seeking to help a greater number of companies worldwide transform their buildings from “leaky buckets” into smart assets.

“Using next-generation smart building software and analytics, we’re helping enterprises boost sustainability, comfort and brand equity while reducing operating expenses,” Noller explained. “On our quest to fundamentally improve the way people manage buildings, we’ve rapidly acquired innovative customers and partners who realise that big data and analytics can drive cost efficiencies while delivering an exceptional customer experience.”

Due to high-profile direct customers like WeWork, Lendlease, Oxford Properties and Forest City, Noller said she and co-founder John Darlington have been able to attract many global partners, such as NHP and Pioneer Energy, to their smart building platform. In addition, the company serves multiple Fortune 100 clients across the retail, financial, grocery and commercial real estate sector. Read more
