Enlighted Safe Wins Innovation Award from Business Intelligence Group


Enlighted won a 2021 BIG Innovation Award presented by the Business Intelligence Group for its workplace digital contact tracing software application Safe.

Enlighted, a Siemens company, is the world’s most advanced Building IoT Platform for leading commercial and healthcare organizations around the globe. The company’s IoT platform captures granular data about what is happening inside a building to positively impact business operations.

The BIG Innovation Awards recognize organizations, products and people who bring new ideas to life in innovative ways, including notable companies like Google, IBM, AT&T and Abbott. Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations, and nominations were judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteered their time and expertise to score submissions. Enlighted was recognized in the product category for its workplace digital contact tracing software application.

“As soon as COVID-19 surfaced, we immediately responded to urgent customer needs to provide a data-driven solution to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in office buildings, manufacturing facilities, retail distribution centers and more,” said Stefan Schwab, CEO of Enlighted. “We were in a unique position to pivot our proven IoT/real-time location services technology and develop a solution that not only addresses immediate needs but also helps future proof buildings for the next big challenge. We are proud to receive the 2021 BIG Innovation Award by developing a software that positively impacts society especially during such challenging times.”

Safe provides data and visualizations of the density and movement of people, monitoring workplace cleaning and disinfection, real-time-overcapacity alerts for crowded spaces, digital contact tracing and more. The technology prioritizes data privacy by assigning employees alphanumeric ID badges, eliminating the need to store personal information in the app.

“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Enlighted as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress with its Safe application.”
