November 14, 2018 - Planon announced today that Michigan State University (MSU) has selected Planon's Integrated Worplace Management System (IWMS) for campus management. The system is designed to help provide the highest performing, most innovative and modern facilities in the US higher education sector with a focus on quality, customer satisfaction and value.

"Michigan State University is a large and diverse company with one of the largest central campus dormitory systems in the country and a growing focus on research. On our East Lansing campus, we serve 558 buildings spanning more than 2, 2 million square feet, "says Dan Bollman, Associate Vice President for Infrastructure Planning and Facilities (IPF) at MSU. "Our goal and our vision is to offer first-class services in support of the university's mission in the areas of teaching, research and public relations. In order to be successful, it is important that we offer a comprehensive and integrated facility management system."

The MSU will use the full range of the Planon IWMS suite and plans to start the implementation with space and maintenance management. The scope of the entire project also includes the implementation of asset management with sustainability, fleet management, key management, mobile solutions, invoicing and more.

"We will use Planon as the foundation for MSU's facilities, real estate and infrastructure systems and data. This forms the basis for our facility organization as we strive to provide the best possible campus experience for MSU students, faculty, staff and visitors "says Barbara Wilber, IPF Support Services Manager.

"The Michigan State University IPF team has a courageous and impressive mission," said Fred Guelen, president of Planon North America. "With Planon, MSU will implement what we believe to be the most effective and comprehensive campus management solution and realize our shared vision of a real 'Smart Campus'."
