Accruent, Synchronoss Technologies Announce IoT Partnership for Dynamic Environments

Accruent, a provider of solutions for the built environment, and Synchronoss Technologies, a provider of cloud, messaging, digital and Internet of Things (IoT) products, have announced a partnership that will combine the Synchronoss Insights Platform with Accruent's vx Observe IoT asset-monitoring software. The collaboration is intended to provide insights and efficiencies to enterprises across facilities, the companies report, and to expand the effectiveness of enterprise IoT solutions.

In Microsoft's "2019 IoT Signals" survey, 88% of companies surveyed indicated that the IoT will be critical to their success, while 56% of respondents indicated they were adopting IoT technology to optimize operations—the most common reason given. For many organizations, the complexity and uniqueness of their facilities portfolio make operational enhancement very challenging. Peak asset and facility performance not only require analysis of many sources of telemetry data, but also require the ability to control connected assets through multiple interconnected channels and to interact with those assets and facilities within existing workflows.

One example of a complex challenge faced by global facilities managers is the management of energy consumption and spending, especially in countries where the cost of energy varies greatly based on the timing of consumption. Managing energy use to minimize costs requires the constant analysis of asset performance, as well as the ability to control assets in a way that allows multiple controls and set points to be acted upon simultaneously. To meet the challenges of such dynamic environments, Synchronoss and Accruent have combined their IoT software products. The partnership brings together both companies' analytical capabilities, asset-control expertise and workflow integration to inject automated business intelligence into operations.

"The huge amount of data produced today by IoT devices is virtually useless unless analytics and machine learning are applied to make sense of it all," said Mary Clark, Synchronoss's chief product officer and CMO, in a prepared statement. "Combining Synchronoss's ability to manage large-scale analytics capabilities with Accruent's deep knowledge of physical resource management will allow enterprises across the globe to realize the potential of a truly 'smart' building and leverage their IoT-enabled assets."

"Accruent and Synchronoss bring together expertise in facilities and asset management, high-volume analytics, workflow integration and credibility in the communications industry to help organizations solve business problems that had only partial solutions in the past," said Andy Ruse, Accruent's chief revenue officer, in the prepared statement. "Together we can deliver solutions to help our customers overcome their operational challenges and optimize their built environment, allowing them to extract maximum value from their assets and focus on their serving customers and delivering value to shareholders."
