Trimble Acquires Manhattan Software to Expand Role in Facilities and Real Estate Management

August 20th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Trimble TRMB, -0.40% announced today that it has acquired privately-held Manhattan Software, a leader in real estate and facility management software, headquartered in London. The acquisition extends its Trimble Buildings’ portfolio of design-build-operate (DBO) solutions by providing building owners, facilities and real estate managers with integrated, end-to-end property, asset and facilities management systems. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The combination of Manhattan’s software with Trimble’s broad technology portfolio in positioning, Building Information Modeling (BIM), analytics and visualization accelerates Trimble’s ability to deliver total lifecycle solutions that will allow owners and facilities managers to access data captured during the building planning, design, construction and renovation phases, thereby providing deeper insight, better operating decisions and better asset performance.

Manhattan Software provides on premise and software as a service (SaaS) solutions which include:

Manhattan Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) provides an enterprise solution for planning and managing any organization’s real estate portfolio of buildings and assets. The deep functionality of the Manhattan IWMS is designed for the entire facility lifecycle to maximize resource utilization while reducing the total cost of occupancy (TCO).

Manhattan CenterStone Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) allows facility managers to effectively and efficiently plan and manage their space, facilities, assets, leases, work orders and operations.

Manhattan Analytics enables clients to derive insight from IWMS and CAFM data to make more effective decisions to optimize their real estate portfolios. By blending data with scientific methodology, Manhattan Analytics provides a comprehensive view of space utilization, capacity, square footage, lease expirations and total cost of operations across client’s real estate and facilities portfolios, and enables all opt-in clients to benchmark against a database of peer organizations in real time on an aggregated level.

Manhattan Space Scheduling provides a scalable end-to-end solution for booking and managing meeting space and flexible desk space, through to meeting and greeting visitors, coordinating catering deliveries, and arranging complex video conferences.

Manhattan Capital Asset Planning enables clients to measure past, present and future performance, and makes evidence-based decisions to optimize the use and management of assets in line with long-term corporate objectives.

“Facilities and real estate management has become one of the most strategically important parts of an organization’s operational structure—and where the majority of the costs reside for building owners and occupants,” said Bryn Fosburgh, vice president responsible for Trimble’s Construction Technology Divisions. “Trimble’s focus is to transform the workplace of the future by providing holistic tools to property owners, occupiers and managers to drive agility, efficiency and insight across the lifecycle from planning and design, through transactions, building occupancy and operations. Our acquisition of Manhattan Software will enable customers to leverage the data and intelligence gained through construction and renovation workflows, and to achieve benefits that endure throughout the full operational lifecycle of buildings.”

“Buildings are by nature spatial, making it essential for owners to visualize their usage, performance and costs,” said Steve Vatidis, founder of Manhattan Software. “By combining Manhattan’s leading IWMS and CAFM solutions with Trimble’s depth of spatial and modeling technologies—including BIM, scanning, mobility and more—we are excited about our ability to redefine the future of workplace management innovation.”

With locations in 35 countries and over 7,200 employees dedicated to providing solutions that make workers more productive, Trimble is well positioned to leverage its global footprint to expand and support Manhattan’s growing client base. Manhattan Software will be reported in Trimble’s Engineering and Construction Segment.

Ex-Microsoft CEO Ballmer to Exit Software Giant’s Board

August 20th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

One week after finalizing his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, Steve Ballmer said he is stepping down from his role on Microsoft’s (MSFT) board of directors.

The former blue-chip tech giant chief executive officer announced his departure from the company’s board in a letter to current CEO Satya Nadella. The announcement was made public on the tech giant’s blog on Tuesday.

In the letter, Ballmer said the decision to step down comes after reflection of his life as he approaches the six-month mark of retirement from Microsoft. But he noted his time has been consumed by other post-retirement endeavors including his focus on his newly acquired basketball team, civic contributions and teaching.

“I think it would be impractical for me to continue to serve on the board, and it is best for me to move off. The fall will be hectic between teaching a new class and the start of the NBA season so my departure from the board is effective immediately,” he wrote.

Still, he said he continues to “bleed Microsoft.”

Ballmer reiterated how much he believes in the company and its path forward under the direction of his successor. He said because of that, he holds more shares of the company than anyone other than index funds, and pledged to continue holding his position for the “foreseeable future.”

He acknowledged that he’s proud of the work he put into Microsoft and is excited about what lies ahead for the company.

“Microsoft will need to be bold and making big bets to succeed in this new environment,” he wrote, later noting “success requires moving to monetization through enterprise subscriptions, hardware gross margins, and advertising revenues.”

To do that, the former chief executive said the company must empower “fearlessness” in its leaders and its decisions to give shareholders the best return on investment.

Nadella, who took the reins at Microsoft in February of this year, responded to Ballmer in a note also posted to the company’s blog. In it, he thanked his predecessor for support during the transition process and for his work leading Microsoft for 34 years.

“Under your leadership, we created an incredible foundation that we continue to build on – and Microsoft will thrive in the mobile-first, cloud-first world,” Nadella wrote.

It’s that focus on cloud and mobile technologies and initiatives that Nadella has quickly advanced since his time at Microsoft’s helm. In just his third appearance as chief executive, the new CEO said in order to thrive in the competitive, and rapidly changing tech culture of today, the company needs to push forward with a “data culture,” which was a new focus for Microsoft under his leadership.

In July, the CEO announced a more streamlined approach to management at the company in an effort to facilitate better decision making and idea flow. He also unveiled plans to cut 18,000 jobs, 12,00 of those from the Nokia unit within the next year.

Earlier in the same month at a tech conference in California, Nadella said the company will venture into the wearable technology space, but declined to offer specifics. He also pledged to overhaul Microsoft’s mobile strategy.

In his letter to the company’s former CEO, Nadella continued by saying Ballmer’s leadership and insight will be missed at the firm, but said he understands the decision, and respects it. He noted he also looks forward to partnering with Ballmer as a shareholder.

Shares of the blue-chip technology company were unchanged following the announcement.

Resumator grabs $15M because investors can’t get enough recruiting software

August 20th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

If the injection of capital indicates popularity, recruiting is a hot commodity.

Resumator, a recruiting software that finds use from Major League Baseball, HubSpot, and Wedding Wire, snagged $15 million in financing today. The company will use the funds to expand its internal teams, create new products, develop new partnerships, and delve further into its current markets.

This round was led by Boston-based Volition Capital. Previous investors, Birchmere Ventures and Rincon Venture Partners also participated along with newcomers Riverfront Ventures and Blue Cloud Ventures. This brings Resumator’s total investments to $18 million.

Resumator works with over 2,000 companies in 63 different countries to help them identify and hire people quickly. It works primarily with those in the technology, media, and entertainment industries. The software itself helps to shorten the recruiting process and improve passive recruiting so the best workers are naturally more attracted to suitable companies.

The Resumator was founded in 2009 by Don Charlton. It currently has 40 employees and is based in Pittsburgh. Back in 2010, the company landed its first $100,000 in seed funding to get its social recruiting and tracking tools off the ground.

This isn’t the only recruiting platform to receive funding in recent months. In May, Jibe picked up $20 million in its third round of funding. And back in April, Work4 raised $7 million for its social and mobile recruiting tools.
