Executive Summary

Historically, software vendors have designed their platforms for use exclusively by building operators and facility managers. But the recent growth of smartphone use and the proliferation of equipment connected to the Internet of Things have created new opportunities to engage everyday users of buildings.


The market for occupant-facing mobile apps is still in its infancy with multiple firms, from global technology firms to specialist providers, launching new products. While they all focus on driving engagement, improving productivity and improving tenant’s experiences the solutions on the market are still very different. This webinar will draw on the latest Verdantix research and insights gathered through briefings with senior executives to evaluate the value proposition of the latest building mobile app product innovations covering solutions from vendors such as ARCHIBUS, Comfy, FM:Systems, Honeywell, iOFFICE, Mapiq, Planon, Schneider Electric, SmartSpace Software, Sony, Tishman Speyer and Trimble. It will provide insight into key questions such as: Are these solutions a valuable investment and not just ‘nice to have’ for building operators? Can mobile apps drive value without leveraging the Internet of Things? How can landlords drive greater value for their tenants supporting yields? What obstacles do vendors need to overcome to ensure their product has traction in the busy world of real estate software?


Heads of real estate, facility managers, building operators, real estate asset managers, and technology vendors should attend this webinar to understand how to plan for the future to get value from occupant-facing mobile apps.
