Estates Management

Transforming Estate Management

Designing the digital architecture that integrates digital solutions into an ecosystem to enable data-driven decisions in real estate.

Enabling data-driven decisions to drive transformation

Estate Management is evolving. No longer can those who plan, operate and maintain estates rely on traditional approaches, systems and processes to meet the demands of their buildings’ users. New service models are emerging and working patterns are changing in response to a number of business critical challenges.

Most organisations are facing the challenge of meeting net zero targets by 2050. In many cases, building assets are old, planned maintenance is challenging, supply chains are heavily reliant on legacy systems and there is no single view of an organisation’s estate requirements from front to back office.

All of these challenges are leading to Estate Management operations being overly complex, susceptible to risk and not providing value for money. To overcome the operational, financial and sustainability challenges, organisations need to re-visit their Estate Management strategy and assess what insights are available to make data-driven decisions ready for the flexible workplace of the future.

  • We have over 500 Estate Management customers across Europe
  • Every day, more than 44,000 people use our Estate Management platforms
  • We help the MOD schedule work for over 40,000 appointments every year throughout their estate

Our approach

At Sopra Steria, we help clients to optimise their physical estates through digital transformation. By extracting data-driven insights about the core components of your estate, we then provide consultancy at each stage of the transformation journey to deliver positive business outcomes.  Our consultants are trained to facilitate and inform discussions with clients, to empower them to make the right decisions. We combine fresh thinking and insight with a diverse mix of skills, experience and capability to design intelligent and innovative solutions that deliver lasting value.​

Navigate complex data challenges

We help organisations understand their current data and identify where improvements can be made to improve data accuracy, availability and visibility. The aim is to create a unified view of your estate, to inform effective decision making.

Develop a future strategy based on insight

Using a data-led approach, we help you focus on the key insights that will drive change to meet your strategic objectives. Our team provide consultation to help shape your strategic plan, taking into account changing technology, data & environmental requirements.

Create a transformation roadmap

With clarity on the strategic objectives, we develop a roadmap to deliver the replacement or integration of legacy platforms and systems, optimise data and analytics and improve efficiencies.

Consultancy to deliver the right solution

We provide consultancy at each stage of the transformation journey to deliver positive business outcomes. From digital ethics (such as an ethics assessment and/or exploratory workshops) to tenant self-service applications, RPA, Cybersecurity and omnichannel support services to name a few.

Shorter engagements to deliver progress

We can also work with you on shorter ‘art of the possible’ style engagements, providing design and consultancy sprints based on our core capabilities such as:

Business change, improving User Experience, Sustainability and Social Value, Digital Ethics, Systems Integration as well as Data Management and Analytics.

Our commitment to Social Value and Sustainability

Through the use of digital technology, Estate Management has the potential to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges, such as climate change, air and water pollution, and resource shortages. But it can have environmental costs too, in the forms of resource consumption and depletion, earth and water pollution, and its own energy and carbon footprint.
