Braintree, MA, August 7, 2012 – After substantial investments in R&D, including on-going consultations with clients, Planon is pleased to announce the launch of its Strategic Space Planning (SSP) solution, an IWMS tool to optimally manage an organization’s investments in real estate and facilities.
Planon’s SSP, developed in partnership with clients that include T. Rowe Price and Nike, provides user-friendly drag-and-drop interfaces that deliver sophisticated yet intuitive analysis. The system provides insights and recommendations for streamlining costs while meeting future needs, all presented in easy-to-understand language aimed at the highest level of decision makers.
“SSP gives facilities managers the tools they need to produce accurate forecasting of facilities demand under a variety of scenarios,” explains Pierre Guelen, founder and CEO of Planon Software. “I am particularly proud that SSP was developed largely by our North American operations in response to the needs of our growing roster of clients in the U.S. and Canada.”
Planon will present an in-depth demonstration of SSP, including front-line feedback from clients, at Planon’s upcoming Master Class for North American clients, being held in October in Orlando.
SSP’s key features include:
- Multiple “what-if” scenarios forecasting ahead 5 years;
- Easy-to-use forms to collect demand data from business unit leaders;
- Simplified KPI reports for stakeholders;
- Seamless integration with existing Planon solutions, such as Workplace Management.
