BRAINTREE, Massachusetts, February 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Boston-based software company Planon, the global leader in Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS), today announced that it has moved its North American headquarters due to tremendous growth over the past year. The new space, which nearly doubles the company's square footage, also showcases Planon's IWMS solution at work.

"We see a growing demand for integrated real estate management and facilities management solutions, especially among large corporations based in the United States," said Fred Guelen, CFO and president of North American operations at Planon. "But many organizations are still struggling to understand exactly how they can manage new workplace concepts. By outfitting our new space with our solution, they can experience it firsthand."

The new office consists almost entirely of flexible work spaces, where employees can check in to desks and meeting rooms that are monitored by occupancy sensors. A touch screen kiosk at the entrance shows all reserved, occupied, and free work spaces. Reservations can be made through an integration with Microsoft Outlook, at the kiosk, or on a mobile device with Planon Apps.

The opening of this new office shows Planon's continued commitment to the North American market by being a global provider of integrated facilities management software. Planon has implemented its comprehensive solutions for more than 2,000 clients. These organizations have benefited from adding an IWMS as a fourth pillar-next to ERP, HR, and CRM systems-for full data ownership, increased productivity, and legal compliance.
