Executive Summary

This case study takes a deep-dive into Nordomatic’s acquisition of Spica Technologies, examining how the firm is helping its customers take a digitally enabled approach to workplace management. The modern workplace is becoming increasingly difficult to manage, owing to new hybrid working practices and ESG agendas. Real estate executives need to digitize operations to tackle new challenges, such as unpredictable occupancies, carbon emissions reporting and volatile energy prices. By acquiring Spica, Nordomatic plans to bring together building controls and workplace management software, so that customers can manage energy effectively, improve their hybrid working strategies and share data through integrated platforms.
