Cushman partners with MCS to grasp the IoT opportunities

Cushman & Wakefield has announced a new global agreement with Smart Building Technology provider MCS Solutions, an Internet of Things (IoT) technology firm with over 25 years of industry experience in more than 60 countries.

By bringing together expertise in many areas of real estate, workplace, and facilities management – ranging from building occupant comfort to cleaning to catering, technical maintenance, energy management, space optimization, and smart working among others – Cushman & Wakefield says that the partnership will allow clients to have a greater positive impact on occupants’ experience and control over their building portfolios, turning big data into actionable intelligence.

The solutions benefit a wide range of companies, Cushman goes on to say, from those considering IoT for the first time to those who are already invested in the technology. For instance, a new global solution will enable companies to view their portfolios in real-time, aiding more immediate understanding and efficient workflow.

Steven Quick, Chief Executive of Global Occupier Services for Cushman & Wakefield, comments: “Our goal with this partnership is to create value for companies through more flexible, responsive, and efficient solutions across our global portfolio. It’s not just about providing smart building technology for our clients, but also about providing predictive analytics and insights to improve future occupancy planning.

Koen Matthijs, CEO of MCS Solutions, adds: “We are excited to partner with Cushman & Wakefield to provide their clients with meaningful insights from big data and make them actionable. Our products will boost their real estate performance and facilities management efficiency, reduce costs, and improve employee experience in the workplace”.

This latest move is another example of real estate brokers and advisors enlarging their scope of activities to embrace the use of buildings, not just buying and selling them. Such advisors have also broadened their spheres over recent years to include different types of real estate such as residential, rest homes…
