BOSTON, October 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Siemens AG, the largest engineering company in Europe and a leader in energy-efficient technologies, has decided to globally deploy Planon's Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), which supports efficient management throughout the entire real estate lifecycle. This project is part of the ONE Global project, used by Siemens Real Estate (SRE) to promote the harmonization and standardization of its business processes and services based on a global real estate solution. The Cloud-based software will be integrated into the IT landscape of the Siemens company, to define and implement a globally uniform, central and integrated system to support SRE business processes.
SRE is currently managing more than 50 million square feet of office, industry, production and specialist space at over 2,400 Siemens AG locations worldwide.
