Estates Management

Transforming Estate Management

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

Now is the time to transform your approach to estate management

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 and fluid workplace of the future.
