Open University

Open University: “The Cloud is indeed a costefficient, well-performing, secure, and futureproof alternative to an in-house installation.”

The Open University (OU) is the United Kingdom’s largest educational establishment with almost 180,000 students in the UK and abroad, supported by a network of approximately 5,000 tutors. The OU first implemented Planon’s Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) software in early 2006 to protect the asset value of its buildings to ensure the lowest life cycle costs, and to provide a satisfactory working environment for the university’s 4,000 staff.

Ten years later, the OU decided to move its solution to the Planon Cloud to save even more IT and Estates resources, lower hardware investment costs, and benefit from automatic software updates.
