ISS and T-Systems enters partnership on strategic platform for IoT
ISS and T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, have signed a three-year strategic partnership on a platform for Internet of Things (IoT). During the next six-months, ISS will collaborate with T-Systems to build a strategic roadmap of IoT services to be implemented for a three-year contractual term.
In 2018, ISS successfully deployed IoT sensor technology at customer sites in more than 18 countries around the world. Approximately 20,000 sensors were installed at various customer sites to enhance customer experience outcomes such as occupancy, wellness and indoor climate control amongst others.
ISS will now leverage T-Systems' cloud based platform, 'Connected Things Hub', to further industrialise and scale up IoT solutions though a single platform. This platform will allow ISS to further enhance the ability to deliver market leading compliance within IoT.
Jesper Kryhlmand, managing director for T-Systems Nordic, says of the deal:
"We are very excited about this global partnership with ISS. Smart facility management with IoT fundamentally changes the way buildings are managed intelligently because digitally recorded data provides a more accurate understanding of habits, property usage and cost drivers."
IoT data is used to optimise the workplace environment for comfort and productivity by providing seamless interaction between the workplace and the service teams.
Sam Lavers, global head of digital excellence & IoT at ISS, adds:
"IoT solutions are becoming more critical to supporting efficient operations and creating a connected digital experience within the workplace. We are pleased to partner with T-Systems, who will enable us to enhance delivery of these services at the highest quality with a high level of compliance and IT security for our customers."
This partnership will further complement ISS's partnership with IBM. IBM continues to provide the facility service business platform for ISS.
