Find out more about our company

We are consultants, designers and developers. We are hands-on.

Canneman / Cormont consists of a small group of people with a knack for business IT, specialized in large buildings, such as: convention and exhibition centres, malls and airports. Founded in Singapore from 2010 by Richard Canneman & Jelmer Cormont.

We have taken the art of Experience Design from the digital realm and adapted it to the design of buildings and spaces. We approach pervasive building technology in the same way as IT-specialists have been approaching information technology: with the experience(s) of users in mind. Adding an extra dimension.

  • User Experience – the improvement of the “experience” for all stakeholders.

  • Operational Excellence – the improvement of efficiency levels from business process.

  • Feature Technology – the addition of “technology to impress” on-site or online

Improving the user experience through operational excellence, combined with the addition of feature technology on-site, should be THE major strategic goals for truly sustainable innovation.

These are some obvious, impressive uses of technology* (hardware and e.g. multimedia) that highlight the renewed modern character of a building.

* Note that these are examples of implemented features, and the options are by no means limited to ideas like these; anything achievable with devices small or large, or connected, intelligent content management software is within reach with the right project methodologies and expertise.

Strategic Driver: User Experience

To be able to improving customer experience and operational excellence, and integrating feature technology, we use a user-centric requirements evaluation model.

Each user of an integrated system that a future building provides (consisting of all online and offline technology and communications), should be able to perform all steps in a comfortable and predictable manner.

A set of user journeys can be used to find gaps and improve scenarios for each user’s overall experience. It is important to note that user journeys touch upon (digital) user interfaces as well as the business process and business communication as a whole.

Improving user experience is largely related to optimizing information flows, whether automatically generated, or a part of the larger business process. Since information flows for one perspective relate to information flows for another perspective, user journeys are often interrelated: streamlining an entire business process would entail a look at all perspectives.

User Interface Experience
“ Canneman Cormont's deliverables and ICT roadmap are of utmost importance to the relevance of our business for the coming years and will be used as part of our overall strategy. ”
