Did you know a whopping 30% of the data created early in a project ends up completely lost, creating gaps for facility managers in operating and maintaining the installation? Digital Asset Tracking provides a solution for this as it simplifies the project handout, making it much easier and faster for your customers to get all the information they need, whenever they need it.

Keep reading to discover how customers can benefit from implementing Digital Asset Tracking today.

Toss the papers and deliver the switchboard digitally

Digital Asset Tracking allows you to eliminate paperwork, outdated files, conflicting data, and unclear project roles. With Digital Asset Tracking, you won’t have to worry about any gaps in information related to the equipment.

A digital representation of the project switchboard is available to team members via a QR code on the outside of the switchboard panel. This paperless solution always provides a convenient reference, including during the factory acceptance test (FAT) at the vendor’s facility and the site acceptance test (SAT) at your client’s location.

It saves time and money throughout the commissioning, operations, and maintenance stages of a project. Panel builders will be happy to learn that Schneider Electric enables digital asset documentation through EPC-D (EcoStruxure Power Commission – Desktop) when building their equipment.  Their end users will be able to scan the Panel QR Code to get online and mobile access to the equipment data.

Easily collaborate, share, and find documents

Everyone on the project team – from electrical engineers and panel builders to contractors and service providers – has easy access to vital up-to-date documentation. From construction to operation, all project partners can access and manage digital documents using a simple QR code at the switchboard.

It shows roles such as Electrical Engineer, Panel Builder, Contractor, Service Provider, and Facility Manager, each with a description of accessible documents like design, switchboard, construction, and maintenance docs. All characters are linked to a central database for easy document access, denoted by QR code scanning.

Deliver the switchboard and provide customer access

With Digital Asset Tracking, give your clients and/or facility managers quick access to the convenient and up-to-date information of the tagged equipment via the QR code. This helps to make information more accessible to customers over the full lifecycle of their assets.

What is the importance to the industry?

Now you may be asking, what is the relevance of Digital Asset Tracking to the industry? Digital Asset Tracking empowers customers to harness their asset data and insights more effectively for better decision-making. By leveraging the analytics capabilities of Schneider Electric’s Digital Asset Tracking, customers can have at-the-ready access to valuable information over the full lifecycle of their assets at their fingertips.

Additionally, Digital Asset Tracking provides customers with:

  1. Facilitate asset maintenance, inspections, certifications and operations efficiency thanks to up-to-date documentation.
  2. Asset centric documentation and collaboration: Enable collaboration across all the partners part of the eco-system. From beginning to end – build, commissioning, integration, operations, maintenance, and disposal of the asset – Digital Asset Tracking has you covered.
  3. Support new emerging regulations about product sustainability documentation, like the digital product passport in Europe.

How does Digital Asset Tracking align with electrical code?

Even the National Electrical Code (NEC), standard for electrical installation in the U.S., recognizes that how individuals get information is evolving and digital delivery of content can enable a higher level of usability of that information. Schneider Electric is already contributing to this evolving code with the capabilities of Digital Asset Tracking in mind. For the next revision of NEC in 2026, Schneider Electric has submitted a proposal to include ‘electronic records or associated software’ as an acceptable means of documentation for inspections and tests. Digital records are far easier to update and maintain through the lifecycle of the project and could be a bridge between the installation and maintenance sections of the code in future.

Schneider Electric’s progress with Digital Asset Tracking not only further cements us as a trusted leader and trailblazer in this space, but it also offers our customers peace of mind and security with having such easy access to information about their assets as well as knowing Schneider Electric is compliant with industry code.
