August 30, 2017 - Planon today announced that it has again been recognised as a strong solution provider in the global IWMS market by being named a "Leader" in the Verdantix 2017 Green Quadrant® Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS). Planon is a market-leading vendor of innovative software that supports corporate real estate, facility managers and service providers in optimising their business and workplace performance.
Pierre Guelen, founder and CEO of Planon, says: “This great result further validates what our 2,500 customers around the world already know - that they have made the best choice in choosing Planon’s IWMS to achieve their real estate and facilities management goals. This benchmark shows Planon is in a leading position within the global market for IWMS solutions, having improved significantly compared to the last Gartner Magic Quadrant (dating from 2014)”.
