The latest independent report shows Planon is positioned in the Leaders quadrant in Magic Quadrant. Planon was recognized in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner's 2008 Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems.1

According to the report, "Leaders have strength in applications and platform technology, demonstrate a high level of quality in product reliability and service, have strong operational and organizational capabilities and financial stability, have global reach, and offer a strong vision of customer needs reflected in a robust development road map."

Also mentioned,"Vendors that qualify for the IWMS Magic Quadrant must offer at least three of the four components of functionality (project management, real estate portfolio/lease management, spacemanagement and maintenance management), must have earned at least $5 million in revenue during 2007, and must have secured at least 12 new customers during 2007".

In Planon's opinion, Planon qualified for this position in the Magic quadrant because Planon offers a fixed-price implementation scenario and has a track record success rate of 95% on-time and within budget. A key differentiator in Planon's technology platform is the multiple-client architecture employing Web 2.0 technology and offering wireless, Web and rich-client interfaces. Planon also believes that the considerable strengths in moves/adds/changes, and work administration via the service desk functionality counted as well for the placement in the Leaders quadrant.

Gartner's report stated, "Most suite applications will interoperate with other enterprise applications, such as ERP, supply chain management and human capital management, via Web services technologies".
