Not only do businesses need to tackle the challenges of living in a post-Covid world, like the rise of hybrid working models that are leading to lower build occupancy, but they also need to consider how ready they are to meet new government legislation on sustainability and health and safety policy. 

This partnership will combine the carefully curated features in the PlaceOS platform with Monstarlab’s expertise in creating digital experiences that drive engagement and revenue. It will enable real estate owners to effectively plan and manage space in their buildings,  potentially unlocking new commercial models, create streamlined experiences for building users and drive improvements in energy efficiency and other elements linked to building performance. 

Commenting on the partnership, James Hall, UK Executive Director at Monstarlab said:

“Forming a partnership with PlaceOS has allowed Monstarlab to enhance our services and add value to our customer engagements. Using cutting edge technology, and placing the people using these spaces at the heart of what we do, we enable buildings to stay relevant and continue to meet the evolving needs the users require.

Sabrina Venish, Global Head of Platform Solutions at PlaceOS added: 

“PlaceOS and Monstarlab represents the best of both worlds. An integration platform that creates a cohesive technology system by connecting everything in your building; and the expertise and experience in delivering world-class digital solutions.” 

Welcoming the news, Nick Constantinou, EVP of UK, Germany, Netherlands & Middle East also said:

“As Monstarlab has continued to grow, so has our collaboration with PlaceOS. Not many companies can say that they have a strong partnership across four continents. This is an exciting time to see how we can use our respective areas of expertise, in a post pandemic world to become the leading suppliers for developing Smart Buildings and delivering exceptional experiences for our customers.”
