Johnson Controls and Willow are to integrate their respective smart building and digital twin solutions to help customers digitise buildings and facilities at scale and make them healthier, safer and more sustainable.
As part of the partnership, Johnson Controls will integrate its OpenBlue Digital Twin platform with Willow’s digital twin solutions for critical infrastructure and real estate. Using digital twins will make it easier to analyse data sets and predict patterns and trends when designing, constructing and operating buildings and facilities.
“Through this partnership we have an incredible opportunity to help customers reimagine what is possible when they digitise their buildings and facilities at scale,” said Joshua Ridley, CEO and co-founder of Willow. “By integrating the power of WillowTwin with Johnson Controls’ OpenBlue Digital Twin platform, customers can obtain operational efficiency and cost reductions, improve their sustainability management and improve internet of things security across their buildings and facilities portfolios globally.”
In addition, Johnson Controls and Willow have entered into a go-to-market and license agreement for the use of digital twin technology patents held by Johnson Controls.
“We look forward to working with Willow to provide increasingly robust digital twin solutions to our mutual customers.” said Rodney Clark, vice president and chief commercial officer at Johnson Controls.
