BUENO SYSTEMS

Energy analytics company BUENO Systems was working on a mall when the worst happened. The network failed and equipment failed to “ON,” which kept units running 24 hours a day. As it turns out, the mall’s network was overloaded and glitching before BUENO even deployed. It had been for a while. These latent issues were a ticking time bomb and would have resulted in a failure if any new devices were added to the network. Because it was BUENO’s device, though, they had to fix it. The only way to fix it was out of pocket.
