A Virtual Org Unit can be used to group a number of Virtual Sites, which are entities that might not necessarily carry attributes commonly associated with a physical building or asset. A business unit (e.g. Marketing) can be an example of a Virtual Site that can be defined within the platform, which can be linked to a Virtual Org Unit along with other Virtual Sites. With hierarchies consisting of Virtual Sites and the use of virtual meters, users would effectively not be limited to aggregating and organising data for reporting and analytical purposes by physical buildings or assets, or groups of physical buildings or assets.
Virtual Org Units are created in the same way that physical Org Units are created, however the tick box 'Is virtual' must be selected.
