Our digital cloud-based asset management real estate solution enables us to implement innovative portfolio management, asset management, tenant relationship management and property acquisition strategies.
Investors are able to access instantly our asset valuation and financial performance reports, which can be used to manage and receive insight of the property, monitor and reflect the operations, provide instant access and information of the asset and improve the property and asset management processes due to better communication and interaction with stakeholders.
Some asset managers and portfolio managers treated properties as securities and products of the financial market. This meant that they were not familiar with the requirements of tenants, defects or problems in order to learn from and use the feedback of the building and the tenant. Hence, the building did not evolve or improve and the tenant requirements were not met. With the usage of technology and by obtaining data to analyse and evaluate it is possible for us to directly understand the accurate and real-time usage of space, facilities and time. We do not need to go to the facility or property manager to ask, which improvements need be done. Instead, through the interoperability of different software we can see the data from the building and from the tenant directly. An example is the usage of heating in office buildings. Sensors can measure the heat or noise level in order to show, where employees are located. It was impossible to understand as accurately, as it is now, which areas of the office were empty and which were maybe even overcrowded. Office managers can then change the layout of the office in order to use all space equally. This data can also show, which area has been used in order to determine, which area has to be cleaned and which does not need cleaning, as it was not used.
This can maximise utilisation of the office space, increase productivity of the employees and decrease cost for example for cleaning.
We are required to find tenants and always targets full occupancy. It is now possible to use marketplaces in order to find potential tenants, which we are not in a database of an agent. This also means that there are no geographical boundaries or language barriers. So, any tenant is able to find our premise, even if they are overseas. Then they are able to view our property via virtual reality platforms and are able to sign a contract digitally.
With the invention of new technology, it is now possible for us to be virtually closer to the building and to have much more insight information through data. We forecast rental income, capital expenditure CAPEX and operational expenditure OPEX and do not only need to rely on general market statistics of the past to predict the future.
With the use of sensors, it is possible to obtain real-time data of our buildings. This can mean we can determine for example the consumption of energy of a specific floor or room or even a tenant. Alternatively, it can measure the longevity of an elevator, which might require replacement in the next two years. This data is then accessible from everywhere in the world anytime and we are able to create a budget for his forecast.
Furthermore, we transparently show the owner or investor all the details of the property and portfolio. Technology enables us to use information from property manager’s system, which is compatible with our system. Hence, different digital systems are now interoperable.
Efficiency can be created true scalability, which means we can use one system and one standardised algorithm and apply it to different buildings in order to receive the same kind of reporting or the same task and strategies have to be standardised and implemented at a call to action scenario. This could be any changes, such as a tenant moves out and the new tenant moves in.
