Planon teams with Microsoft to extend cloud offering, joins Azure Marketplace

Jan. 5, 2023
With the new partnership, existing and new customers of Planon’s integrated real estate and facility management software platforms now have the opportunity to choose the cloud technology that fits their business best.

Planon and Microsoft on Jan. 5 announced the addition of Microsoft Azure to Planon’s cloud platform. Conversely, Planon will now use Microsoft Azure Marketplace to showcase some of its most popular software products.

With the new partnership, existing and new customers of Planon’s integrated real estate and facility management software platforms now have the opportunity to choose the cloud technology that fits their business best.

In the first instance, this will include Planon Integrated Workplace Management Solution (IWMS) as well as Planon Workplace Edition and Planon Workplace Insights. Later this will be extended to other Planon software solutions.

Irrespective of their choice of platform, Planon notes that with the new partnership, more clients can continue benefitting from all the advantages of the fully automated Planon cloud infrastructure, including, but not limited to, economies of scale, more sustainable IT operations, upgrade control and full compliance with security and privacy regulations.

Henk Laracker, chief technology officer at Planon, commented:

“We are proud to advance our collaboration with Microsoft and join its partner ecosystem. By adding Microsoft Azure as an alternative to our current cloud technology offering for our Planon platform, we can provide our clients the flexibility to choose their preferred cloud vendor, based on their internal IT preferences. Moreover, being firm advocates of the open platform approach ourselves, we are convinced that joining the Microsoft Azure Marketplace will provide customers with an easy to implement, secure and scalable integration of our smart sustainable software solutions.”

Hermien Roebersen, global partner solutions lead at Microsoft, concluded:

“We’re delighted to welcome Planon to our Microsoft Cloud Partner Program. It’s great to see that Planon’s customers now have access to our Microsoft Azure Cloud Services and the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The expansion of our partnership means that we can deliver even more options to the customers to better support them in their needs.”
