Testimonials & Results

Plant Engineer, General Electric Appliance Plant

  • Reduced annual Air Compressor electric costs by 20%
  • Payback on investment: 3 months

Manager of Maintenance, RCA Thomson Consumer Electronics

“We evaluated several systems and selected AutoPilot because it was easier to install and the software development and support could not be matched by anyone else. … With AutoPilot you get the whole package, they have tailored the programs to our specific needs. We have assigned accurate dollar figures on what it costs to generate compressed air, chilled water and produce steam and have been able to allocate costs among three departments.”
