LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 01, 2011 -- TRIRIGA INC, a leading provider of integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and environmental sustainability software, today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems"(1) by Gartner Inc.
According to Gartner, Leaders "have strength in applications and platform technology, demonstrate a high level of quality in product reliability and service, have strong operational and organizational capabilities and financial stability, have global reach and offer a strong vision of customer needs, reflected in a robust development road map."
Unlike IWMS solutions acquired through merger and acquisition, Gartner advises that "Integrated" suites developed by a single vendor "yield tighter, more seamless integration, less complexity, a better, more standardized interface, a more seamless customer experience, and often faster and more effective implementations." According to Gartner, "the effective integration of these disciplines ideally operates off of a single database with common workflow tools, executive dashboards and robust predefined and customized reporting capabilities."
In alignment with other IWMS market analysts, Gartner expanded its definition for integrated workplace management systems to include environmental sustainability as a core functional requirement for IWMS software, along with real estate management, construction project management, facilities space management, and maintenance management.
"We consider the Gartner IWMS MQ report the most complete analysis of the IWMS market since 2009," said Robert Fitzgerald, Director of Global Practices for Nokia's Workplace Resources Organization and longtime TRIRIGA customer. "An Integrated Workplace Management System based on a single technology platform provides a critical component to the success of Nokia's workplace strategy; it allowed us to consolidate 62 disparate systems and tools and delivered measurable savings in the areas of occupancy and operating costs, energy use, carbon emissions and user productivity."
"We are extremely proud to gain the recognition of Gartner as a leader in integrated workplace management systems," said George Ahn, President and CEO of TRIRIGA. "We believe this report affirms the significant investments and quality of the solutions that TRIRIGA delivered with TRIRIGA 10 and TREES -- our environmental sustainability solution. As organizations seek to reduce the cost and resources associated with a large portfolio of facilities, TRIRIGA 10 provides a modular, market-leading IWMS solution that delivers low implementation risk and measurable return on investment."
TRIRIGA 10™, the latest version of TRIRIGA's award-winning software, delivers a full suite of simple-to-use IWMS business and performance management applications including environmental sustainability for mid- to large-sized organizations, on a single technology platform and data repository with common workflow tools, process-based executive portals and pre-built reporting capabilities.
