ROCHESTER, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#FacilitiesIoT–Pace International and TrustHab have formed a strategic partnership that will enable Pace to effectively market the TrustHab platform. TrustHab, a Cima Group company, is a Facilities IoT Management Solution that provides centralized control over multiple smart devices within a community, enabling staff to proactively tend to maintenance issues, reduce man-hours and increase property NOI.

For Pace integrators, the Solution provides hardware and installation opportunities, implementation of ongoing maintenance agreements, proactive reporting to property ownership groups, and the flexibility to offer a smart home service with a platform.
“We’ve positioned our platform to focus on the changing needs of the MDU industry and kept ourselves open to be able to easily integrate new and emerging technologies as they arrive. We’ve worked hard to future-proof our platform, meaning we’re nimble enough to integrate new devices and communication types quickly, as well as maximize the capabilities of the devices that are available to us today. We are excited to enter this partnership with Pace, it opens up many new doors for us and allows us to offer the benefits of our Solution to companies on a much wider scale,” said Juan M. Gomez, CEO of Cima Group.
