EY has formed an alliance with Planon to help businesses optimize their real estate and workplace strategies in achieving growth, long-term value and sustainability. The alliance has been activated in the Netherlands and the US with additional global expansion planned over time.
As corporate offices play an enormous role in reaching a net-zero future, real estate managers are under increasing pressure to be transparent about the energy and sustainability performance of their building portfolios and to identify areas for improvement.
Together with Planon, which provides smart sustainable building management solutions, EY will bring clients options to fulfil their real estate and digital workplace needs with a focus on innovative technology and efficacy in implementation.
Combining actionable insights from EY with Planon’s integrated workplace management solution (IWMS) and internet of things platform, the alliance will support client efforts to navigate the increasingly complex digital workplace, smart building and workplace experience arena.
Bernd Kramer, global Planon alliance leader at EY, said: “The EY-Planon alliance brings together the digital tools, systems and implementation experience of EY teams and Planon to support organizations seeking a comprehensive solution depot to reshape their real estate and facilities digitally. The alliance helps reduce the complexity arising from independent siloed systems through unified integrated platforms, helping organizations make better decisions, and act quickly and sustainably to develop a future-ready workplace.”
Pierre Guelen, founder and CEO of Planon, says: “Planon is thrilled to collaborate with the EY organization to leverage its experience in real estate and business consulting, its in-depth knowledge of the IWMS landscape and its thought leadership to help our clients achieve a healthy, efficient and sustainable workplace.”
