Who is our client & what tasks did they need solved?
The client has been active in the real estate sector for many years and has built up a large portfolio of over 800 managed properties throughout Germany. They have made it their business to manage the properties holistically throughout their entire life cycle with a high level of quality. Currently, 12 employees work for the company, which is facing a real growth challenge.
Before the start of the project, the company had been working with its own server solution, which was already somewhat outdated and was still being maintained by the company itself. A classic, conventional telephone system was also in use. The full capacity of the administration software in use was not being fully utilised due to unused technical synergy possibilities.
The growing demands and tasks – also with regards to home office solutions required due to the pandemic – made a modern infrastructure increasingly necessary. The existing solutions were becoming maintenance-intensive and were not adaptable and expandable enough to meet the company's development. Moreover, there was almost no possibility to work effectively from the home office, which had not been necessary in the past.
The onboarding process for new employees was labour- and time-intensive because the existing technical equipment was not up to date. Hardware and software updates were expensive, jeopardised normal day-to-day operations and increasingly required expertise that was not readily available to the company.
