Benefits of Willow

Why are the largest owners of buildings and infrastructure networks adopting Willow across their portfolios?

Since the term “smart building” entered our vocabulary, owners have spent countless hours attempting to fulfil the potential of smart devices and the data they generate.

The irony is, that as more smart technologies enter our world, the more apparent is the lack of integration and shortage of true insight. And whilst the benefit of individual point solutions can be justified, they fail to cohesively answer the underlying question every owner wants to ask:
How do I take full advantage of the best in breed solutions, whilst remaining agile and future ready?

Houston, we have a solution.

We believe that the use of digital twins can answer this fundamental challenge for owners. These dynamic, virtual replicas of physical assets were first used by NASA, however they have now found value in many other industries such as aviation, oil and gas, manufacturing. Willow is leveraging digital twins as the solution to the industry’s “data silo” problem. Integrating disconnected data sources into one cohesive, visual, easy-to-use model. Digital twins are the key to the smart buildings and infrastructure networks of the future.

What is different about Willow’s digital twin?

Our WillowTwin™ solution is a new standard of digital twin.

We start with industry expertise delivered through our professional services, which guide and build our digital twin..

In the era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge upon us, Willow is partnering with some of the largest technology leaders, including Microsoft, to ensure your data remains secure, and in the right hands.

Willow leverages the digital twin as a gateway into an entire ecosystem of solutions — an industry first in the world of digital twins. Digital twins for the built world, as defined by Willow, are the key to the smart cities of the future.
