Harnessing Technology to Deliver Value.
The Enviros Advantage
As your facility performance partner, we have a vested interest in the end results and the ability of your operations and maintenance teams to sustain the performance of your facilities. Recognizing the critical importance of accessible data, we invested in the development of technological tools and processes to address common challenges for facility owners and operators. iPerformanceTM – an integrated facility performance and knowledge management platform – represents the culmination of over 10 years of software development and testing.
“After serving as an owner’s commissioning representative for over a decade, we founded Enviros determined to fill industry gaps and alleviate the frustrations of a fragmented, inconsistent, and inefficient process. Over the past 10 years we have built the approach and tools to deliver consistency, value, and results to our clients.”
Principal | Enviros
We strive to work smarter and have created systems and technology to achieve that objective. Originally developed as an internal application to streamline the delivery of commissioning and energy services, iPerformanceTM has emerged as a leading platform for facility owners and their teams to better understand, operate, and maintain their inventory of buildings.
Efficiency Through Innovation
Enviros utilizes technology to drive efficiency in our workflow. This approach enables our team to successfully manage numerous large-scale commissioning efforts simultaneously across large geographic distances by connecting on and off-site team members in real time.
Team Integration + Connectivity
Utilizing iPerformanceTM to digitally manage the commissioning or energy engineering process connects all team members on and off-site and facilitates access to critical project information when and where it is needed. Data collected in the field is synchronized to the platform providing accessible project information anywhere at any time.
All required information to be collected is established in iPerformanceTM before our team arrives on-site. Tablets are used in the field to take photos, record asset details, note equipment issues, and document test results to maximize the effectiveness of each site visit. Our process and tools are fully scalable and ensure complete and consistent information is gathered across each project site by every team member.
Visibility + Tracking
All checklists, actives, and issues are created and tracked within iPerformanceTM. This enables your Enviros Project Manager to easily identify incomplete tasks or unresolved issues. Notifications and reminders are sent to team members assigned to incomplete items. Reports showing all outstanding items, along with the team member responsible, to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.
iPerformanceTM also serves as central repository of resources including commissioning tools, lessons learned, and common system challenges along with troubleshooting and resolution recommendations – thus harnessing institutional knowledge to deliver value and ROI to you as an owner.
We deliver more than just a paper report. iPerformanceTM allows us to provide clients with a digital record of the commissioning process and results. All asset details and documentation, including issues logs, testing record, manuals, and operations and maintenance information is searchable by system and can be accessed by scanning asset tags.
iPerformanceTM pushes data collected on-site to all project team members in real time. This approach expedites the review of results and facilitates immediate feedback on missing information or anomalies in the data collected, ensuring the on-site team can verify or recollect prior to concluding the site commissioning activities.
Typical paper reports are static and often not accessible when needed. iPerformanceTM provides dynamic/real-time information, is accessible 24/7/365 from mobile and desktop devices – both with and without internet service – and is searchable to provide comprehensive data for informed decision making.
Empowering Your Team
One of the greatest obstacles to sustaining the performance of your facilities is knowledge loss. Enviros has built a robust video training program to mitigate that challenge by providing tailored, site-specific training videos that can be used by your facilities teams over the life of your facility.
Training programs are developed and conducted on-site by your Enviros commissioning agent drawing from their knowledge of the facility, commissioning process, installed systems, and any performance challenges or objectives. Training is captured by skilled videographers using multiple cameras, professional audio equipment, and lighting. Titles, captions, music, and transitions are incorporated in the post-production phase to ensure maximum viewability and knowledge retention.
Accessible Facility Knowledge
iPerformanceTM can support the effective management of your inventory of buildings by equipping your team with the data they need to keep systems and facilities running their best.
iPerformanceTM consolidates all facility systems information including equipment, component, and sub-component breakdowns into a single resource. This makes key system data accessible while mitigating the risk of knowledge loss associated with staffing changes or misplaced documentation. All content is cataloged, cross-referenced, and fully searchable using a range of data filters or barcode scanning.

“Our primary objective is to ensure your operations and maintenance teams possess the knowledge to effectively maintain your facility. The Enviros approach features detailed instruction, hands-on demonstrations, and provides your team the opportunity to ask questions from our facility performance experts.”
