Planon announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with SAP to provide organizations with an integrated solution for real estate and facility management. As a result, corporate organizations and commercial real estate companies will benefit both from optimized management of their real estate portfolio and from improved and more sustainable building performance.
The partnership brings together Planon’s best-in-class real estate and smart building management solution with SAP’s industry-leading ERP capabilities, providing greater integration of processes and technology. This will help customers gain value in all areas, such as enhanced compliance and IoT-enabled visibility into operations and automation. In addition, customers benefit from streamlined integration of solutions, enabling them to provide improved processes to all departments involved in the management, maintenance and support of real estate facilities (such as Finance, Procurement, Accounting and HR) and company-specific functions (such as real estate and facility management). The SAP Business Technology Platform acts as the central integration platform for the new combined solutions.
