Ksenija Karić, CEO, Schneider Electric Serbia and Montenegro Ltd.

Savings Are The Biggest Advantage of Digitalisation

Schneider Electric is among the leaders in the field of automation and energy management. Company’s business is based on developing innovative solutions that target end users in terms of the quality of services it provides and the development of the local economy, through the expansion of its network of local partners

Our solutions contribute to improving the operations of our clients, changing their daily routine and creating opportunities for business innovation. With their solutions it is possible to achieve savings from 20 to as much as 80 per cent, reveals the new CEO of Schneider Electric in Serbia and Montenegro

Congratulations on your appointment as CEO. You stated upon taking over this position that the priorities will not change. What expectations and plans do you have as you start leading the company?

Schneider Electric logoThank you for the congratulations. Priorities are not changing, as Schneider Electric’s business is based on developing innovative solutions in the field of automation and energy management, targeting end users in terms of the quality of services we provide and developing the local economy by expanding our network of local partners. This is something that’s an enduring value of Schneider Electric and a principle that we are not abandoning. In this regard, it also reflects my expectations and further plans. It is for this very reason that I am convinced that in the future, no matter what challenges we face, we will continue to improve our products and services, securing the quality for which we are recognised.

We have a team of excellent people, proven experts in their work, so I believe that we will achieve excellent results together

How do you help large industries and all of their users to keep up with trends in digitalisation? Can software from your portfolio accelerate the growth of your clients and help them operate sustainably and with significant savings?

Digitalisation primarily implies the use of digital technologies, and often neglects the biggest advantage it brings us – and that is savings. Moreover, it is important to keep in mind that digitalisation is not solved in one day, but is rather a long-term process in which a company prepares for the future and the challenges that lie ahead. Schneider Electric’s solutions contribute to improving our clients’ operations at multiple levels, by changing their daily routine and creating opportunities for business innovation. With those changes it is possible to collect large amounts of data from the systems themselves, to control and manage processes and energy consumption, analyse all collected data and, of course, realise great savings, from 20 to as much as 80 per cent.

Your innovative solutions, such as the EcoStruxure platform, easily find their way to users. Where has it been implemented to date?

The EcoStruxure platform is based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology and serves as a basis for managing, running, automating and optimising systems locally or in the cloud. It combines all three levels – data collection, control and analytics. Our company has developed six “specialist” architectures according to area of application – EcoStruxure Building, EcoStruxure Plant, EcoStruxure Machine, EcoStruxure Grid, EcoStruxure IT and EcoStruxure Power, which have already found broad application in various industries.

Although our platform is used worldwide, I will stick with the local market – our EcoStruxure solution has been implemented in Serbia by Nikola Tesla Airport, the hotels Hilton and Sheraton, the Green Heart GTC commercial building and the operations of others satisfied clients.
