JANUARY 5, 2022

The Digital Partner Program, which was originally comprised of digital service providers across building technologies, property management, and occupant services in France and North America, is now available to the whole of Europe.

[Lyon, France, 12 October 2022]  – As an innovation leader connecting people with intelligent building solutions, the Distech Controls Digital Partner Program bridges the gap between the digital services requested by building owners and occupants and the experience and know-how of our ecosystem of Digital Partners. Our partners include Smart Consultants, System Integrators, as well as Specialists in Property Management Services, Building Technologies, Occupant Services and Services for Property Managers who are Symbioz certified to ensure optimal and repeatable deployment of all projects.

These partnerships allow Distech Controls customers to benefit from an extended network of world-class IT/IoT/AI companies sharing their expertise and best practices in the areas of building technologies, property management, and occupant services to deliver high-quality, innovative smart-building projects. 

System Integrators, Smart Consultants, and Digital partners are selected for their expertise and collaborative mindset to assist Distech Controls’ network of system integrators with their smart-building projects. Echoing Distech Controls, all members of the Digital Partner Program adhere to open protocols, and industry IT standards, and are certified by Distech Controls to be trained to provide best-in-class solutions and Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) that meet customer requirements and budgets. 

The Symbioz certification is the encompassing training within the Digital Partner Program, allowing all partners to master the advanced functions of our smart-building solutions.  This certification ensures that the qualifications of the key players meet the required standards in innovation, openness, cyber security, and flexibility to deliver the highest level of excellence within a smart-building project.

The goal of the Digital Partner Program is to facilitate meaningful collaboration and to deliver the best results for the customer. Distech Controls partners offer their expertise to help create an advanced digital infrastructure, leveraging the innovative and open ECLYPSE™ platform, allowing for higher efficiencies, a better understanding of a building's overall energy use, and enhanced occupant experience. The System Integrators then ensure quality deployment of the building management system by adhering to the strict certification standards and facilitate easy and reliable data exchange between OT and IT/IoT/AI disciplines. 

Jerome Lhote, Director, Technical Business Development Director Europe at Distech Controls, comments, “the program encourages discussions and teamwork between agnostic experts, which in turn, offers a freedom of choice when selecting service providers. By ensuring certain standards are achieved across the board, through training and continuous learning, we can offer the best solution for smart building projects. It is exciting to roll this out across Europe and we are looking forward to seeing the program flourish.”
