OpenBlue Companion

Amazing Experiences in Smarter Spaces

Engage People and Spaces in Pursuit of Your Mission

The purpose of a space is to gather people in pursuit of a goal. Be it to ignite passion in future generations or provide comfort to a patient, these goals are bigger than anyone can do alone. To truly unleash the power of these world-changers, you need OpenBlue, a smart space management tool.

OpenBlue Companion is an easy smartphone and kiosk app that creates new occupant experiences. Along the way, spaces learn and optimise themselves, becoming a partner in your mission.

Occupant experience app delivers the outcomes you desire

For owners or smart building leaders, Companion ties people to spaces to achieve human and building goals in harmony.

World class experiences and comfortable, smart spaces, attract global talent, teachers, patients, visitors, and others in support of your mission. Companion can also bring together existing and future technology investments through a single experience engine to ensure long term growth.

Connect people to spaces, bridge the virtual and physical, and achieve your mission.

  • Attract and retain the best talent.
  • Connect physical and virtual experiences so my people can be at their best.
  • Make the most of my technology investments.

Smart Space Management

Companion offers a way to flex spaces as needs change. Replace hot/cold calls and supply requests, and expose building data to people so you can join forces with occupants. Achieve building goals related to sustainability and lower operating expenses.

When paired with the reporting and analysis of Enterprise Manager, you can act on powerful insights into how spaces are occupied and utilised. This can be cross referenced with energy consumption and other data.

Make fast and informed space decisions, while partnering with occupants on common goal.

Smarter spaces

  • Streamline requests for help, supplies and tickets through one interface.
  • Allow control of lighting, blinds, temperature in context of energy use impacts to reduce operating expenses.
  • Create rotational schedules and related alerts to ensure optimal space flexibility.
  • Share the latest news, alerts, and communications targeted to spaces.

Spotlight: OpenBlue Innovation Centre

The OpenBlue Innovation Centre will be a testbed for a new breed of customisable, contact-free applications built on Johnson Controls unifying digital technology suite, OpenBlue. The OpenBlue Innovation Centre is pivotal and catalytic in rebooting the building in Singapore and across APAC.

 

The 240 square-meter centre, housed in SDE4, Singapore’s first new-build net-zero energy building, will have sensors fitted throughout the indoor space — including overhead ventilation to measure air flow.

Digital Transformation First Steps: Optimise Space Performance and Mobilise People

When Companion is paired with Enterprise Manager, building decisions are made in context of people’s behaviour and preferences. Imagine knowing true utilisation and balancing space decisions with real insights into comfort and productivity impacts. What about smart building controls that mobilise everyone in pursuit of collective sustainability goals?

Companion and Enterprise Manager create an integrated, data rich, and artificial intelligence infused picture of your spaces and the people they serve. Transform digitally, while using Companion to keep people at the centre of it all.
