UK-headquartered cloud service provider Exponential-e has entered into a strategic partnership with L&T Technology Services (LTTS) to jointly offer international workplace transformation solutions to customers working in the post-Covid environment. LTTS will offer its latest i-BEMS Shield system “anchored” on Exponential-e’s composite SDN carrier grade network and cloud infrastructure. “The combination of these solutions will accelerate digital transformation of the workplace, across industries through digital technologies and platforms,” said the partners.
LTTS’ Intelligent Building Experience Management System (i-BEMS) is a modular “system-of-systems” platform that unifies all campus operations and focuses on creating digital experiences and building optimisation.
I-BEMS Shield is a module that automates and develops smart systems and provides real-time insights to diagnose inefficiencies for quick decision making. Its digital interface “redefines contactless interaction and surveillance” by enabling temperature detection, face detection and tracking, air quality management, occupancy management and energy management.
Lee Wade, founder and CEO of Exponential-e, said: “The needs of businesses in the post-Covid environment is set for a dramatic change. While sustainability was an earlier focus for adopting smart building frameworks for campuses, enterprises are now faced with the urgent need of ensuring a safe and secured workplace environment for their workforces. We provide a software-defined network where functions can be deployed seamlessly.”
Gaurav Gupta, chief business officer for Europe at L&T Technology Services, said: “Our strategic partnership with Exponential-e promises to redefine the smart building ecosystem. This tie-up will lay the foundation for multiple industry leading initiatives on smart and secure workspaces and campuses in the near future.”
Headquartered in India, LTTS has over 16,600 staff spread across 17 global design centres, 28 global sales offices and 51 innovation labs. Exponential-e employs 700 across London, Manchester and Chippenham in the UK.
