Executive Summary

This report provides a detailed fact-based comparison of the 16 most prominent integrated workplace management system solutions available on the market today. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, the analysis is based on two-hour live product demonstrations with pre-set usage scenarios and vendor responses to a 165-point questionnaire. To understand customer needs Verdantix conducted in-depth interviews with 15 software buyers at organizations that occupy mid to large real estate portfolios and reviewed the data from a survey of 303 real estate decision-makers. Our fact-based analysis concludes that six vendors lead the market and they demonstrated an excellent breadth of functionality and strong market momentum. The analysis also reveals that other vendors offer strong propositions in workplace management, mobile solutions for facility engineers and tenant-facing engagement.
