Frost & Sullivan analysts independently evaluated Technology Leverage and Business Impact as the two key factors for assigning this award
May 17, 2021 – During its Best Practices Awards banquet, business consulting firm Frost & Sullivan announced that it has appointed Planon as the winner of the 2020 Indian Facility Management Software Technology Innovation Leadership Award.
In its extensive report, Frost & Sullivan states that “Planon has achieved a top market position in the country’s Facility Management (FM) software area for provision of innovative products, adoption of new technology, and forging of strategic partnerships. In a time of digital transformation and increasing concern towards facility services, Planon has a strong focus on the future, delivering more customised products to serve various sectors than any of its industry peers are able to match.”
In an industry where companies with large and diverse real estate portfolios are struggling to optimise their site monitoring and workplace efficiency, FM software is an excellent enabler of building operations management. The Frost & Sullivan report describes a growing demand for tools that support excellence in service delivery, energy savings, and smart workplace concepts. The full report can be downloaded here.
