Planon has been named a ‘Leader’ in Verdantix’ 2022 Green Quadrant: Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) report.
The company’s digital workplace and smart building solutions were acknowledged for delivering end-to-end real estate management capabilities, comprehensive workplace services tools for employees, advanced business intelligence integrations, and broad functionality for facility management service providers.
The Verdantix Green Quadrant IWMS analysis focuses on the Planon Universe platform which covers real estate portfolio and financial management, lease management, asset and maintenance management, capital project management, space management, workplace services, occupant wellbeing and safety, and energy and sustainability management. Planon has remained in the Leaders Quadrant since Verdantix first ran the IWMS Green Quadrant report in 2017.
“Planon’s capabilities score exemplifies the strong functionality the integrated platform has across many of the core IWMS domains, making it a consistently strong performer across all benchmarks” says Joy Trinquet, Industry Analyst Smart Buildings of Verdantix. “The company has also acquired one of the largest IWMS user bases, with more than 2,500 organizations using its platform across various industries, such as corporates, healthcare and universities.”
Pierre Guelen, Planon Group CEO and founder, adds: “The foundation for Planon’s success has always been our drive to make technology work more efficiently for our clients and our high investment in research and development.
“Our advanced set of capabilities allows organisations to connect buildings, people and processes, by eliminating data silos and aligning solutions into one shared information platform.
“I am very proud of this recognition which is a testimony to our incredibly talented people. Their hard work and determination to empower all building stakeholders with actionable and meaningful insights are again reflected in the Verdantix report and our leadership position in the Green Quadrant.”
Considering all supplier offerings assessed in the Green Quadrant analysis, Verdantix believes Planon should be included on shortlists by global firms that need to track and report on assets around the world, facility services firms looking for new software to improve productivity and manage operations, universities looking for a proven campus management solution, and all firms pursuing an ambitious digitisation programme.
Verdantix – an independent research and consulting firm with a focus on innovative technologies that optimise business operations – compiles this IWMS solution benchmark every two years, assessing the major vendors according to the capabilities of their software applications and the strength of their momentum in the market.
In compiling the Green Quadrant, it looks at strategic success metrics including vision and strategy, installed customer base, organisational and financial resources. The Green Quadrant also assesses capabilities like IT systems integration, business intelligence, user interface, mobile apps, configurability, and enterprise reporting.
