| Portfolio Analytics Manager

Portfolio Analytics Manager or PAM allows you to create dashboards with different types of predefined and custom visualizations. You can use these dashboards to view energy consumption details across the buildings of the portfolio for a specific time period. You can create widgets (charts and graphs) for better understanding of the configured energy mappings of the buildings and to monitor the savings in energy consumption. You can observe system behavior using trend charts along with energy consumption on the various dashboards. Currently the Portfolio Analytics Manager runs on a version 1.7.47.0
