Executive Summary

In May 2022 Verdantix introduced a new software category – connected portfolio intelligence platforms (CPIPs). These represent the next era of integrated workplace management systems (IWMSs), delivering enhanced customer value through insights derived from the Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced analytics. Since the launch of the CPIP category, Verdantix has stayed close to product releases and evolving vendor strategies in this dynamic space. This report provides software buyers with a better understanding of what CPIP means for them and how they can benefit from such solutions.
