Honeywell and Microsoft continue the expansion of their global technology collaboration and strategic partnership with the goal to further help customers unlock the value of their workplaces.
Microsoft unveiled its new workplace app specifically geared towards helping with the challenges of hybrid work, Microsoft Places, during their annual Ignite conference.
The app belongs to a new, emerging category of technology solutions called Connected Workplace and is due to be released in 2023 after a preview period.
The new app uses intelligence to determine where hybrid working takes place, which it says will lead to “increased connections, engagement and productivity” by bridging virtual and physical spaces.
Honeywell joins the ecosystem of partners in Connected Workplace who will help create holistic and impactful solutions to address changing workplace needs across Experience, Platform, Infrastructure, Environment, and Planning segments.
“Honeywell has long been a partner of Microsoft, and we are excited to continue to take the areas we have innovated for decades across occupancy, access, visitor and contractor management, comfort, and sustainability to expand the Connected Workplace market to modernize and optimize all the places where employees work,” said James Taylor, GM of Sine, a Honeywell Company.
