Getronics’ technologies will empower Boustead Projects to leverage unified, “single pane of glass” building management solutions that enable effective integration and interoperability of multiple connected smart systems across entire portfolio of properties
Singapore, 6 September 2019
Getronics Solutions (S) Pte Ltd, the Singapore unit of Getronics, leading global information and communications technology (“ICT”) service provider, is pleased to announce that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (“MOU”) with Boustead Projects Limited (“Boustead Projects” or the “BP Group”), Singapore’s leading real estate solutions provider for smart eco sustainable business parks and industrial developments which will offer integrated smart building solutions for industrial buildings, industrial parks and integrated digital cities. The MOU was signed at the Singapore Built Environment Week 2019 organised by the Building & Construction Authority.
The implementation of Internet of Things (“IoT”) technologies and automation in smart buildings has led to increasingly complex building management systems often comprising multiple disparate systems and devices. This makes it challenging for facility managers to effectively integrate the different systems and devices in order to achieve intended productivity and efficiency gains. In most cases, IoT technologies are already ‘smart’ in a stand-alone way but a true smart building experience is created by enabling and automating multiple simultaneous business processes between multiple heterogeneous systems. Getronics’ technologies will empower Boustead Projects to leverage unified, ‘single pane of glass’ building management solutions that enable the effective integration and interoperability of multiple connected systems across an entire portfolio of properties.
Getronics’ track record in developing and delivering smart building integrated technologies also includes critical environment projects such as smart hospitals, as well as smart ports, smart airports and smart logistics, with dozens of projects globally, from South America to Australia. Getronics will bring great added value by future-proofing Boustead Projects’ development projects with a flexible and scalable platform for new and ever-changing technologies.
Mukul Jain, Managing Director APAC and International of Getronics, said “We are proud to collaborate with an innovative and trusted player in the real estate market like Boustead Projects. Singapore is the perfect place to push our own boundaries in innovation and creativity with an intelligent infrastructure that will define and showcase the future of smart buildings.”
Thomas Chu, Managing Director of Boustead Projects, said “Just as being a one-stop provider for integrated real estate solutions has allowed Boustead Projects to meet the diverse, unique needs of our growing client base, we believe that integrated smart building solutions are also key towards developing effective, workable solutions for next-generation smart buildings. Leveraging on Getronics’ technologies for smart buildings will further augment our integrated suite of innovative, transformative real estate solutions addressing an entire building lifecycle. Getronics is a proven technology partner of choice and we look forward to forging a synergistic partnership with them, capitalising on our exciting pipeline of development projects as well as the other strategic platforms we have established to support our regional and sectoral expansion.”
