Branded Retail & Franchises

In retail, everything matters, all the time. Nothing can wait until Monday morning, revenue doesn’t stop at 5pm, and consumer expectations have never been more demanding. NRM can radically change the way your refrigeration equipment affects your business.

Branded Retail & Franchises

A 21st-century retailer is a veritable mini-mall of revenue systems and demanding machinery. Year in and year out, significant investments are needed to extend customer reach and attract new visitors. The retail operator has a thousand potential emergencies, all going 7 days a week, sometimes 18 or 24 hours a day. Can you rely on multi-tasking crewmembers to identify and diagnose mechanical problems reliably?

Controlling and monitoring temperatures of walk-in and reach-in coolers and freezers, and reducing your business’ energy consumption should be as convenient for you as your services are for your customers.

The bigger your network, the more potential failure points, and the more critical it becomes to automate your systems through a single hub.

NRM’s web-enabled controls and monitoring platform acts as an extra set of eyes and hands on your refrigeration system. Our platform was developed and tested in the demanding theater of real-world retail. Features and functionality are designed from the ground up for foolproof serviceability and operation in a high-turnover environment where onsite staff and service contractors need robust and simple operation.

View advanced diagnostics and detailed operating data anytime. Receive real-time alerts of problems before temperature goes out of range, access historical performance data for audits and reporting, and recoup an average of 30% of the system’s energy consumption. And if you have multiple locations, all of your refrigeration equipment can be connected through a single web dashboard.

Best of all, the controls and monitoring system pays for itself through energy savings. Financing options are available that effectively make the system a zero out-of-pocket expense.

How can NRM Help?

  • Insight designed around your needs - Whether they have a few locations, or thousands, retail networks nationwide turn to NRM for oversight, tested and proven across tens of thousands of coolers and freezers. Track temperatures, equipment run-times, on/off status, compressor operation, and energy usage. Refrigerant leak detection, lead/lag, load shifting, adaptive defrost, demand limiting, superheat and sub-cooling performance, and custom management strategies can all be easily implemented.
  • Temporary System Shutdown - Deliveries and inventory are two instances where your refrigeration equipment can waste the most energy and experience the most potential for trouble. Doors get left open, breakers get flipped off, and people get distracted. With NRM’s system, a big, red shutdown button lets delivery people or crewmembers taking inventory safely shut down the walk-in temporarily, preventing them from accidentally leaving a breaker or disconnect turned off.
  • Real-time Monitoring and Control - Never be in the dark about a mechanical issue again. NRM’s platform keeps you connected to your equipment 24/7, from anywhere. Many mechanical issues can occur when you least expect them, or when you’re not even there to notice them. Evaporator coil icing up on a Saturday? Receive an alert to your phone, schedule extra defrosts from your mobile browser, and resolve the issue. Cooler or freezer door left open? Get an alert and call the onsite staff before it becomes a temperature problem.
  • A Complete Turn-Key Solution - With unique 24/7 technical support, dozens of service and installation trucks on real-time GPS tracking, automated work-order management and dispatching, NRM is fully equipped to make sure you get the best possible outcome. Our true turn-key approach to implementation, commissioning, training, and post-installation support, means that one company is accountable: NRM. And our ongoing support also allows for continuous training. When roles change or new service professionals need training, we’re only a phone call away.
  • Proven Energy Savings - When the energy-efficiency industry thinks refrigeration, they think NRM. Our award-winning solution is multi-faceted—comprehensive smart controls, predictive diagnostics, a web-based platform, hardware upgrades—allowing it to provide unmatched optimization. Across tens of thousands of coolers and freezers, NRM solutions reduce energy consumption by 30% or more.
  • Built For The Real World - NRM’s controls are designed from the ground up to be serviceable by anyone. One-button bypass instantly restores the system to pure mechanical control. If the NRM controls fail or lose power, they immediately go to bypass, and come back online with all settings intact. Simple, user-friendly interfaces and operation makes it easy to get state-of-the-art diagnostics without needing to be a computer expert or an engineer.
  • Adaptable & Scalable Platform – Whether your facility or network has 3 walk-ins or 300, NRM's platform allows for control and monitoring through a single hub. Streamline the oversight and management process through an online dashboard with access from anywhere, 24/7/365.
  • Monitoring-Based Commissioning - Motor upgrades, run-time control, adaptive defrost strategies, and precision temperature management all extend the life of the equipment and reduces the frequency of emergency repair calls.
  • Built-In Measurement & Verification (M&V) - Store and download current and historical operational data and energy usage, locally or from The Cloud.
