AMX Partners with Planon to Streamline Resource and Building Management

AMSTERDAM – Jan. 30, 2007 – AMX®, a worldwide leader in advanced control system technology, today announced that it has partnered with Planon to streamline resource and building management. The company has developed a scheduling plug-in that will enable Planon‘s Workplace Management Software to interface with any of its Resource Management Suite (RMS) of products, such as MeetingManager®, ClassroomManager™ and IntelligentManager™. The RMS/Integrated Workplace Management Software Interface will be demonstrated in AMX booth C30 at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), being held Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 in Amsterdam.

“In our discussions with a number of organizations in Europe and around the world, we learned that there are many synergies between our RMS software applications and those offered by Planon,” said Robert Noble, AMX chief technology officer. “The interface we developed came in direct response to requests we received to combine the scheduling capabilities of both applications into one streamlined interface. By delivering this new capability to the market, we are increasing employee efficiency and simplifying the experience for our customers.”

The partnership between AMX and Planon will enable users to do something that is truly unique – schedule a meeting using Planon‘s software and then have the meeting displayed on an AMX Modero® Touch Panel installed outside the room. Using the communications link created by the interface, Planon‘s software tells the RMS application about the newly scheduled meeting, which the RMS application then automatically sends to the touch panel for display. This functionality is not possible with any other building management software on the market today.

Planon‘s Integrated Workplace Management Software provides organizations with a robust software for managing a wide variety of business processes, including personnel, project, budget and property management. The company‘s extensive customer base spans a variety of AMX‘s key vertical markets, including government, corporate, healthcare and education.

RMS is an enterprise-grade family of software solutions enabling administrators and managers of AMX control and automation systems to manage, monitor and track audio/video equipment, as well as meeting/class room schedules, across a single building, campus environment and/or locations around the world – all from one central location.

The RMS/Integrated Workplace Management Software Interface will be available for download on AMX.com within 90 days.
