Real Estate and Facility managers face numerous—and frequently evolving—challenges in their daily work. The convergence of technologies, global competition, and new workforce values have laid the foundation for a fundamental revolution in the way work is done and how core-business value is created. Additionally, CRE and FM managers need to respond to the evolution of technology and sustainability, ensure compliance, and increase cost efficiency.

Three trends that Gartner, IFMA and CoreNet recognize are mobility, Internet of Things, and Cloud services. As Gartner states in this guide, IWMSs are moving toward facilitating the digital workplace and its requirements for collaborative agility. Planon believes we are well positioned in these areas because of our social networking, BIM integration, mobile platform, and strong IoT and analytics offering.
