Companies enter into strategic global agreement that redefines the interaction of people and the workplace through smart building technology


CHICAGO, April 20, 2016 – Corralling the vast amounts of workplace data is the first step toward improved space utilization, energy efficiency, cost avoidance and improved employee satisfaction. As a leader in integrated facilities management, real estate data and portfolio analytics, JLL (NYSE:JLL) announced today that it has strengthened its comprehensive suite of Smart Building solutions with a five-year, global integrated technology and services partnership with Enlighted, a leading provider of advanced sensor technology and Web-enabled visualization and analytic applications for commercial buildings.

The agreement establishes JLL as Enlighted’s commercial real estate industry partner and preferred project management service provider. JLL and Enlighted can now deliver Enlighted technologies in an end-to-end solution that includes JLL’s renowned facilities management, project management and workplace services. The combination will reduce the time, risks and costs associated with implementing smart building solutions while also identifying opportunities to leverage JLL’s comprehensive Smart Building program. JLL and Enlighted will also collaborate on innovative new products and services that enable JLL clients to analyze and act on building and space data and integrate that data into a holistic smart building approach.

This integrated approach has been proven to reduce energy consumption, improve employee comfort, accurately track space usage and inform strategic real estate portfolio decisions.

“Our corporate clients around the world are very interested in the potential cost savings and data-driven workplace insights that our partnership with Enlighted provides,” said John Hampton, Senior Vice President at JLL. “This exclusive agreement enhances our ability to use data and analytics to help our clients make faster and smarter real estate decisions.”
