SAN RAFAEL, Calif., October 1, 2015 – Canara, the trusted leader in critical power analytics and facility management services, today announced a global financial services company as its latest Critical Facilities Services (CFS) customer. CFS is filling the gap in the mid-market by providing a scalable framework of consulting and operations management services designed specifically for small to mid-size critical facilities. Since its initial launch, Canara has grown its consultative capabilities and expanded its specialized team of critical power experts.
“We have seen great traction since our entry into the CFS market and have successfully leveraged Canara’s more than 20 years experience in the industry to provide world-class services to critical facilities,” said Tom Mertz, CEO. “As a result, we were recently chosen to provide CFS consultation to one of the largest banking and payment technologies provider in the world.”
Concerned with minimizing risks while transitioning to a new facilities management provider, the financial services company engaged Canara’s CFS consulting team to review the new provider’s program and provide recommendations on how to safely deploy the customer’s new services. Canara’s veteran CFS consulting team provided an accurate assessment and they identified areas of improvement to protect the financial service company’s facilities against possible interruptions.
“Our team of critical facilities experts worked closely with our customer and its new vendor - spending numerous hours evaluating the program and transition plan,” said Mertz. “With our recommendations, our customer was able to minimize risk and seamlessly transition operations.”
Canara CFS provides enterprise-level consulting services and operations programs for small and mid-sized critical facilities under a flexible, cost-effective program. These programs empower data center operators with the visibility, intelligence and trusted services necessary to improve operational efficiency, meet compliance requirements and protect their investment.
