POLAR adds UMA to its portfolio

Through its key principle products, UMA says it provides the tools to make the workplace a safer, smarter environment

POLAR, established supplier of key industry brands to the installation market, has announced the addition of UMA to its portfolio. Through its key principle products, UMA says it provides the tools to make the workplace a safer, smarter environment.

UMA digitises a workplace floormap in 2D and 3D, enabling social distance parameters to be set and the O365 integration provides the ability to generate booking and contact trace reporting, supporting a heathy, productive work environment.

UMA Sense provides IOT sensor technology for the workplace. Real-time room sensors inform staff whether a room is occupied, and allow it to be booked by simply walking in and released in the event of a no-show, improving workplace meeting culture. Sensors can also monitor temperature, humidity, CO2 and other particulate matter relating to air quality, electricity usage and more, whilst providing anonymous occupancy monitoring for Covid-19 compliance.

“We are very excited by the potential that this British brand brings to the market,” said Will Turney, head of POLAR Integrated Solutions. “UMA puts the user experience at the forefront in a fast-moving world, where organisational efficiency is ever-more crucial in respect of cost and sustainability. The ease of use on the ground for personnel and facilities managers, coupled with valuable data about the use of a company’s resources, make UMA a huge asset for business.”

Nathan Rogers, head of channel sales at UMA added: “I have first hand experience of working with the POLAR and know their expertise in solution driven projects. I’m very pleased to be working in partnership with the POLAR team to build UMA’s market share. With the growing need for hybrid and agile working, businesses need critical data to understand how their buildings and resources are performing. They also require the ability to understand and manage employee welfare within the environments to monitor occupancy versus capacity.  From one pane of glass, businesses and employees can book resources, monitor air quality and online AV devices, and report data to make informed decisions.  I believe POLAR and UMA will continue to build a strong offering to the market with some exciting new features to come in 2022.”
