16 May 2023 — Planon today announced a strategic partnership with SAP with the objective to offer companies an integrated solution for real estate and facility management. As a result, corporate organisations and commercial real estate companies will benefit from optimised management of their real estate portfolio together with an improved and more sustainable building performance.
The collaboration combines Planon’s first-rate real estate and smart building management solution with SAP’s market-leading ERP capabilities, providing a more comprehensive integration of processes and technology. For customers, this will help increase value across the entire enterprise, including enhanced compliance and IoT-enabled business insights and automation. Also, they will benefit from streamlined solution integration to serve improved operations for all departments involved in management, maintenance, and support of real estate facilities, such as Finance, Purchasing, Accounting, HR and business-specific functions like Real Estate and Facility Management. SAP Business Technology Platform will serve as the central integration platform for the new combined solutions.
According to Jan Gilg, President and Chief Product Officer, Cloud ERP, SAP SE, ‘Teaming up with Planon and its shareholder Schneider Electric on the joint vision to connect buildings, people and processes in a sustainable way unlocks significant value for our customers. This partnership is a great complement to our portfolio, enhanced by our comprehensive cloud ERP solutions with multiple touchpoints across ERP, finance, procurement, sales, and HR.’
‘With this partnership, both SAP and Planon customers will be able to derive end-to-end value across the enterprise,’ added Pierre Guelen, CEO and founder of Planon. ‘The combined solutions will enable them to run best-in-class real estate and workplace operations, focused on efficiency and cost reduction, while reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions and elevating user experience.’
