Antwerp (BE), Bjerringbro (DK), September 25, 2018 – MCS Solutions is announcing that it signed a strategic partnership agreement to integrate its smart building products into HOLMRIS B8’s workplace offering. Through this partnership, HOLMRIS B8 will bring innovative, technology-enabled workplace design solutions to the Scandinavian market.
Workplaces are becoming smarter
The role of technology as an enabler of agile workplaces is growing fast. This vision is shared by both companies. By investing in smart technologies, office designers and corporate occupiers can better satisfy the needs of occupants. More specifically, it enables organizations to create engaging and functionally effective workplaces. This in turn helps them attract and retain the best talent and offer them the right environment to excel.
IoT-related technologies are, therefore, quickly finding their way to our workplaces. The real-time utilization data that the IoT provides not only supports activity-based working. It also drives smarter services, well-being, and better space utilization.
MCS Solutions’ Smart Building platform COBUNDUTM is recognized as the first complete, turn-key software solution for implementing smart buildings and workplaces. After doing a thorough market survey, the leadership team at HOLMRIS B8 chose it as the platform that will support their ambitious growth plans.
Benefits from joining forces
HOLMRIS B8 has a leading position in Scandinavia and a growing market share across the international markets. The company also has excellent relationships within the architect and design communities and a comprehensive focus on office, care, learning and hospitality sectors. This well enable MCS Solutions to access new target markets and accelerate its smart building solution delivery in the Nordics.
For HOLMRIS B8, the integration of the latest workplace technology into its offering, is a strategic lever for future business. It will enable the company to strengthen its bonds with key stake holders and influencers. Equally important, it will add value for its corporate clients.
“This partnership agreement represents far more than a new reseller channel for MCS Solutions,” says Carlo Van Der Steen, Director MCS Solutions Nordics and Baltics. “It will no doubt be instrumental in amplifying our presence and solution delivery in the Danish market. But first and foremost, this is a future-oriented partnership, that is truly strategic and beneficial for everyone involved.”
”We are experiencing an increase in demand for intelligent solutions that take advantage of the often expensive square meters in a better way as well as ensure well-being among employees” said HOLMRIS B8’s CCO Niels Henrik Lauritzen. “Through our collaboration with MCS Solutions we can provide our customers with a unique opportunity to use and optimize their facilities and interior designs through a well-documented and tested solution.”
