Business model for smart buildings


A smart building uses different sensors, actuators, and systems to automate or aid in the operation of a building. One example of such a system, provided by Essity since more than five years, is Tork EasyCube which is a facility management software connected with IoT sensors. It brings a whole new level of efficiency and quality to cleaning operations by utilizing data collected from sensors in washrooms and toilets.


In order to further evolve in this area and looking at businesses conducting work in smart buildings, we would like to understand if there are possibilities to adapt or generate new business models based on how businesses would like to work in and use a smart building.


By doing a mapping of the existing eco system, identifying customer needs and actors within the smart building area one or several potential business models should be identified, discussed, and examined.
