Selected projects

A global asset manager and developer needs a structured and efficient approach to reporting, planning and tenant management for their German subsidiary. The solution(s) should be straightforward and fit for local use, but tie in seamlessly into the corporate structure. The ARELIO team was mandated to lead the system selection process for suitable CRM, Asset Management and Document Management / Data Room soluions.

 

Providing the necessary project control and project management services to one of the leading German providers of closed-ended and open-ended funds is another - currently active - task. The scope is, to renew the planning and reporting systems for their asset and funds management operations using an off-the-shelf IT solution.

 

How to collect and integrate a multitude of external data streaming in? A German AM does manage more than 100 properties spread over a multitude of countries and different PMs. We did provide an analysis of possible solutions (processes and IT) to their rent roll collection challenge.

 

A global REIT did plan to insource the property management for their German operations. Naturally, the timing was out most challenging, and the organization structures had to adopt during this transition as well. We did provide project management for the implementation of a global off-the-shelf property management system.

 

We did and do contribute our share to help a real estate developer with his growing pains. The addition of new business models as well as new assets made the company grow from 10 H/C to 40 H/C within two years (and going ...). We did develop an IT and digitalization strategy and supported selection and implementation of consequential systems. The scope did include standard tools for asset management, property management, RE development (tactical and operational), back office operations and document management / data rooms.

 

To provide one example of a fire-fighting mission: The integration of a new mandate (> 10.000 residential and commercial units) did prove more challenging than originally anticipated. The processes, workflows and data transfers (especially rent roll collection) failed to get harmonized as planned. We did provide a throughout analysis of the recent approach, the requested Project progress measurement and did advise on a suitable future approach. And then all immediately was fine? No, but based on this, the necessary steps were taken to set the project back on track!
