BOSTON, Nov. 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Planon announced today that California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) selected Planon's Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) for the management, development, and optimization of its campus facilities.
The Planon solution will enable capital project management, facility finance, maintenance operations and space teams at Cal Poly to effectively and efficiently manage facilities throughout the entire building lifecycle.
"We at Cal Poly are excited to begin this partnership with Planon and the incredible value the Planon Universe system will bring. We have put a lot of time and effort into testing it against the market leaders and negotiating a contract that will greatly benefit our campus," said John Sage, Strategic Business Services for Cal Poly. "Further, this agreement will be made available to other campuses in the system. By having other campuses take advantage of utilizing the same IWMS solution, reporting up to the Chancellor's office can be more consistent than ever before. The Planon team, along with their solution, clearly stand as the leader in the higher education facility management technology today."
The first phase of implementation for Cal Poly will focus on facilitating and optimizing maintenance operations, time keeping, and mobile technology for the labor crews.
"Planon is particularly proud of this winning partnership with Cal Poly," said Fred Guelen, President of North American Operations and CFO. "Cal Poly, like other colleges and universities in North America and around the world, are replacing their legacy systems and migrating to Planon Universe in the Cloud. With this partnership in place, Planon will be delivering the most advanced, comprehensive, and innovative IWMS in the world to the Cal Poly campus and potentially, the whole CSU system."
