Wipro Wins an Engagement with Speciality Restaurants to Reduce Energy, Operational Costs

Bangalore, India, and East Brunswick, New Jersey, USA - October 27, 2016: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced that it has won a five-year engagement with Speciality Restaurants Ltd., a leading fine dining operator in India, with 107 restaurants spread across India, Bangladesh, Tanzania and Doha in Qatar. Wipro will offer energy management services to Speciality Restaurants, which would help pare energy and operational costs.  

The EcoEnergy business of Wipro will implement its Managed Restaurant Energy Services (MRES) program across the client’s full service restaurants.

The MRES program is driven through a three-pronged restaurant energy control strategy: Intelligent Site Automation, the use of an intuitive Wipro Energy Manager (WEM) Application Suite, which enables restaurants to monitor, control and optimize their energy consumption on a near real-time basis, and the development of a centralized Energy Operations Center (EOC) to generate key insights through big data analytics.

Indraneil Palit, Executive Director (Project, Business Development & Strategic Planning) Speciality Restaurants Ltd., said, "We are delighted to partner with Wipro for this energy management initiative. Currently, we have rolled out the Wipro Managed Restaurant Energy Services (MRES) program across 12 of our restaurants with positive results. This engagement will further strengthen our endeavor to deliver extraordinary experiences to our clients whilst caring for our environment."

Syed Mansoor Ahmad, Vice President and Head – Wipro EcoEnergy, Wipro Limited, said, “Spiralling energy costs is an area of concern in the QSR (quick service sector) sector worldwide. We are happy to have been chosen by Speciality Restaurants as their energy management partner and are confident that we can help them set new energy saving benchmarks, reduce operating expenditure and enhance end-customer experience.”
