Large and mid-market enterprises should consider Trimble’s ManhattanONE integrated workplace management system (IWMS) when looking for a financial-focused IWMS solution with deep functionality from a company with extensive real estate industry experience.
That’s the advice contained in a new report from International Data Corporation (IDC), the premier global provider of market intelligence and advisory services for the information technology, telecommunications and consumer technology markets.
Titled “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Workplace Management System 2020–2021 Vendor Assessment”, the new report provides an assessment of prominent IWMS vendors and discusses what criteria are most important for companies to consider when selecting an IWMS software solution. The evaluation looks at both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that offer guidance about IWMS vendors and their solutions.
We are excited to announce that after a thorough evaluation of our strategies and capabilities, the IDC MarketScape has named Trimble as a “Leader” in IWMS solutions.

Vendor Assessment, December 2020, IDC #US46261420
The IDC MarketScape report focuses on three key areas of vendors’ offerings: financial functionality, CRE industry expertise, and innovation.
When assessing financial functionality, the report notes that our ManhattanONE software solution delivers “excellent value” by streamlining, standardizing, and automating customers’ real estate processes.
ManhattanONE is a flexible, integrated decision platform that was designed to simplify the complexities of managing a diverse portfolio. It does this by delivering the deep operational and financial insights organizations need to allow them to define new ways of working and to innovate more freely. The software delivers 360-degree enterprise visibility which enables users to gain the foresight to anticipate and prevent problems, and also identify and mitigate potential risks.
The report states: “Trimble’s ManhattanONE stands out in terms of its ability to handle large, complex real estate portfolios underpinned by a subledger. This allows organizations to align financials with each operational element of IWMS.”
The report also points to ManhattanONE’s “robust functionality”, adding that Trimble “continues to improve with net-new modules for financial planning and lease compliance”.
When evaluating vendors’ industry experience, the report recognizes that Trimble’s ManhattanONE has been in the real estate portfolio software market for nearly four decades. It highlights the “distinct staff knowledge and industry expertise” which ManhattanONE brings to new deployments and the enhancement of existing customer systems.
In addition to Trimble’s formal functional-based user groups, the report notes the way the company also hosts bi-weekly conversations across its client base to discuss handling the new challenges raised by the COVID-19 pandemic.
When evaluating Trimble’s approach to innovation, the report acknowledges that Trimble is focused on continually improving the ManhattanONE user interface and user experience.
The report states: “The ManhattanONE road map emphasizes enhancements to decision support, AI, mobile, and well-being by using its expertise to guide decision-making and provide data-driven recommendations.”
IDC analysts also noted Trimble customers’ satisfaction with the company’s IWMS strategy and its efforts to add more intelligence to the platform. As just one example, our use of AI to interpret data from your building’s consumption of energy and automatically set up a meter if there’s no meter to capture it – streamlining the implementation and instantly providing a secure home for all the data.
We invite you to read the IDC MarketScape excerpt to hear about the key characteristics of IWMS applications, advice for technology buyers and why Trimble was named a worldwide leader.
