Does Integration vs. Replacement Save $$$?

There are SIGNIFICANT advantages to doing an integration instead of a compete replacement.

  • Integration to legacy field devices can save up to 90% of the cost of doing a complete replacement. This becomes more evident as the size and complexity of the building increases.

  • If you do a phased replacement the customer can include the incremental transition costs in their maintenance budget. They do not have to do a onetime large capital outlay.

  • By integrating and replacing the head end they gain most of the same benefits of a complete replacement day one.

  • Make sure that you are looking at the complete cost of a replacement system. It’s not just the hardware. All of the installation and commissioning services need to be considered.
