Smart Systems Rating Program helps company to empower trust in its innovative smart building features.

UL Solutions Inc. recently announced it has awarded Cohesion, a smart building software platform, the first Smart System Verified Platinum rating for unified building operations software, helping empower trust in smart building technology among building owners, contractors, consultants and operators.

The use of smart building technologies is increasing due to their impact on sustainability and the enhanced experience for building occupants and operations management. These features may include reservations and amenities management, identity management, temperature controls, indoor air quality monitoring and optimization, and more.

For Cohesion to receive the Smart System Verified Platinum rating, UL Solutions evaluated its platform across six categories:

  1. Connectivity and interoperability
  2. Control and automation
  3. Digital experience
  4. Functional value
  5. Resiliency
  6. Cybersecurity

Each category has different areas of examination reflected in sub-categories, and UL Solutions utilized its science-based methodology throughout this evaluation.

Frederick Sy, vice president of Strategy and Portfolio Innovation at UL Solutions, commented:

“Smart building technology software companies are innovating at such a fast pace as the industry continues to evolve rapidly. Verification by an independent third party can be a significant differentiator in the crowded smart building technology market, especially when it comes to security and comfort of building occupants as well as data capture.”

“Achieving UL Solutions Smart System Verified Platinum rating for Cohesion’s unified smart real estate software platform is a testament to the power of a unified platform that integrates all underlying systems, regardless of manufacturer. We built Cohesion to help every building become more resilient for commercial landlords and enterprises,” added Thru Shivakumar, CEO of Cohesion. “Working with UL Solutions to verify our software marketing claim solidifies and deepens trust among commercial and enterprise customers seeking a comprehensive platform they can rely on to achieve their smart building goals across portfolios.”
