Verdantix Names Smart Innovators In The Emerging Market For Smart Building Mobile Apps
London – September 6, 2018. A new study by independent research firm Verdantix identifies 28 suppliers of smart building mobile apps targeting occupants as Smart Innovators in the smart buildings software market, currently worth nearly $5 billion. These mobile apps are designed to improve occupants’ engagement, productivity and wellbeing in buildings. The report reviews trends in product design, core usage scenarios and how mobile apps are likely to develop in tandem with the IoT technology trend and proliferation of smart buildings. Corporate executives responsible for real estate and facilities, asset managers and landlords should use the report to better understand how these apps have the potential to deliver value to building occupants in office, retail and healthcare environments. Vendors should use the report to develop strategies to maximize their traction in this fast-growing niche of the market.
“We found huge amounts of innovation, with vendors designing products to address multiple problems relating to occupant engagement, productivity and wellbeing from radically different angles,” commented Ibrahim Yate, Verdantix Industry Analyst and author of the report. “One of the most exciting developments is that these apps can help generate a near ‘smart-building experience’ in buildings that are anything but.”
The report “Smart Innovators: Building Occupant Mobile Apps” names the following 28 suppliers: Amenify, ARCHIBUS, Asure Software, Beco, BuildingIQ, Comfy (owned by Siemens), Condeco, CoWork.io, CrowdComfort, Facebook, FM:Systems, FSI, Honeywell, indoo.rs, iOFFICE, Mapiq, Micello (owned by HERE Technologies), NavVis, Neudux, Optix, Planon, Schneider Electric, Skedda Bookings, SmartSpace Software (previously branded as RedstoneConnect), Sony, Tishman Speyer, ThoughtWire and Trimble.
“The next phase of the market will see a lot of vendors converge on two or three propositions that seem to make the most sense. I expect to see plenty of capital raises, product releases as well as new customers announced, and soon after there’ll be a wave of consolidation,” commented Rodolphe d’Arjuzon, head of the Verdantix smart buildings research practice and co-founder of Verdantix.
