Based on its recent analysis of the North American building Internet of Things (IoT) platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recently recognized Enlighted, Inc., a Siemens company, with the 2020 North America Company of the Year Award.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents a Company of the Year Award to the organization that demonstrates excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation in its field. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.
Enlighted’s IoT platform captures granular data about what is happening inside a building to positively impact business operations. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Enlighted applied its technology to help minimize exposure risk in the workplace. The Silicon Valley-based technology company previously earned the Frost & Sullivan North American New Product Innovation Award in 2019.
In addition to its technology, its 2018 acquisition by Siemens AG helped extend the company’s global reach and enhanced its product portfolio. Siemens’ smart infrastructure division enabled Enlighted to initiate several large-scale projects and partnerships with companies like Salesforce and Comfy. For example, its collaboration with Comfy, a workplace experience solutions provider and sister partner through Siemens, enabled it to introduce an intelligent desk reservation system. By mounting surface sensors under desks, employees can quickly identify desks anywhere in the building that meet their needs, are unoccupied and available in real-time. Business leaders gain transparency into peak usage hours, most frequently used workspaces and sanitization needs.
