RICHARDSON, Texas — ENTOUCH, which specializes in internet-of-things energy management solutions (EMS), has released a suite of convenience-store operational tools. The OCTANE series offers convenience stores a preconfigured, yet customizable suite of EMS tools designed to drive return from energy management and operational efficiency for multisite c-store operators.

The OCTANE series provides insight into existing equipment and uses predictive reporting to identify when issues should be addressed prior to failure. The system is designed to reduce utility spend through optimization of energy, water and trash pick-up. These features work together to reduce the reliance on local staff to monitor and manage equipment and site infrastructure.

The OCTANE series is available in three grades: OCTANE 87, OCTANE 89 and OCTANE 93. Each of the series provides EMS based on the complexity of need. OCTANE 87 introduces primary EMS and operational tools, while OCTANE 89 and 93 expand with capabilities covering food service, car wash and trash monitoring.

“The special needs of convenience stores demand a specialized offering that is customizable to the geographic and business realities multisite operators face not only today but also for the long term,” said James Walton, ENTOUCH vice president of product commercialization and developer of the OCTANE series.

ENTOUCH, based in Richardson, Texas, is an energy management as a service and smart building technology company. ENTOUCH’s products are designed to optimize operations while reducing energy usage to drive profitability for multisite businesses.
