Executive Summary

In September 2020, integrated workplace management system (IWMS) vendor Planon announced the launch of a new strategy to make its platform more open and customizable for customers and partners. The updates will enable users to add custom features to its IWMS platform and more easily integrate with third-party systems via out-of-the-box APIs. This strategy helps Planon align with the move towards open systems across the smart building sector. Our analysis finds Planon’s new strategy will provide value to large firms looking to roll out an IWMS platform with best-of-breed point solutions, as well as enable its existing users to customize software to create new functionality.
