Intelligent and secure bank buildings: Maximise the value and efficiency of assets throughout a building’s life cycle, and create productive, state-of-the-art workspaces for traders, analysts, developers, and other financial commercial building staff. Our innovations for building automation and management systems make bank buildings more energy efficient and sustainable, regardless of size. Schneider Electric’s smart buildings solutions include: EcoStruxure Building Advisor on-site and connected services; EcoStruxure Building Operation software; EcoStruxure Security Expert software and access control; EcoStruxure Workplace Advisor; room control solutions; and connected electrical distribution.

Financial data centres and micro data centres: Data centers and infrastructure must be reliable and secure for IT and digital banking. Safeguard customer information in both cloud and on-premise data centres as well as on trading floors and in branch operations. Data centres and critical infrastructure must be reliable, secure and available to successfully deliver internal IT services and digital banking services. Data centre solutions include prefabricated and modular data centers, hyperpod rack-ready data centers, lithium ion batteries, data center lifecycle services, data centre operation software, data centre expert software and EcoStruxure Building Operation software.

Smarter bank branches and ATMs: Banks with large networks of branches and offices need to optimise relevant energy and operational costs. Branches can represent 40–80% of corporate energy spend, with legacy sites requiring extensive energy conservation measures. These spaces can represent high operational costs, and regardless of the size of your financial institution, branch energy consumption remains one of the largest operational expenses. To maximise profits, energy costs must be optimised at the branch level and across the portfolio. Lastly, it is imperative that ATM networks are safe and available for clients when they need them.  Schneider Electric’s solutions include: Smart-UPS; video surveillance; NetBotz rack access; EcoStruxure Building Operation; and Data Centre Expert software.
