Planon Integrates Sensor Technology with IWMS Software

Planon Accelerator 6.0 allows real-time workplace measurement and analysis

BRAINTREE, MASSACHUSETTS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Real estate managers facing increasing challenges supporting flexible workers can now better analyse and manage workplace requirements.

Planon, a leading global software supplier, has introduced a new version of its IWMS solution, Planon Accelerator(TM) 6.0. Next to many new solutions like Capital Project Management, KPI reporting and benchmarking and a complete restyled and full web-based user experience, one of the key innovations is the integration of sensor technology. This allows organizations to equip each workplace or meeting room with a sensor, registering the actual status of individual desks and spaces. It also enables real-time monitoring and analysis of flexible workplaces and meeting rooms and supports planning.

"The integration of sensor technology within IWMS yields almost endless new opportunities," said Pierre Guelen, CEO at the Planon Group. "This is a major next step in the automation of workplace management. In the coming years, we will see the rise of more connected devices and sensors, often referred to as the Internet of Things. Planon Accelerator 6.0 introduces workplace management into this new, connected world."

Real estate managers can analyse data in real-time and consolidate this information to gain insights into the utilization of workplaces. "Based on the Big Data that are generated with Planon Accelerator 6.0, real estate managers can analyse historical data to predict trends in the near future. But, primarily this technology facilitates the workforce to collaborate and work effectively in a dynamic workplace environment; without friction and without operational chaos."

User experience

A new and improved user experience is an essential element of version 6.0 of Planon Accelerator. A dedicated team of user experience developers has managed to dramatically improve the interface mechanisms. These mechanisms are now more intuitive, simple, relevant and consistent interface for any type of user. The layout and content of the interface can then be adapted to specific desires of the user.

Other new capabilities

Planon Accelerator 6.0 also includes:


--  Capital Project Management to manage planning, finance, scope and
    quality of capital expenses and projects 
--  A new KPI reporting and benchmarking solution called Data Aggregation
    Manager 
--  Extended functionality in Planon Mobile Field Services to dispatch and
    manage work orders for teams with multiple engineers 
--  Fast and easy configuration transfer between test, acceptance and
    production databases 
--  A role-based homepage that serves as a dashboard to give users a quick
    overview of tasks, graphical dashboards and supports immediate access to
    back office functionality.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
