Automated workflows and a comprehensive property management portal enable vital data to flow seamlessly among departments and stakeholders, from owners to investors and beyond.
Alpharetta, GA, January 17, 2019—Abel Solutions, Atlanta’s premier consulting firm helping customers achieve business excellence, today announced its recent United Properties project has passed the 90-day benchmark—and results are impressive.
“We have already saved countless hours, compared with our previous system, locating documents, searching for important information in those documents and sharing documents with our key partners,” said United Properties Assistant Vice President and Operations Manager Ann Riemersma.
To configure the REALTY|share platform for the specific requirements of United Properties, Abel Solutions’ industry and technology experts worked closely with Riemersma and United Properties IT Director Kevin Powell. “We were looking not just to replace our previous [document management] system, but also to evolve our document practice and have centralized quality control,” said Powell.
Powell and other United Properties personnel had seen REALTY|share at Realcomm 2017, where the powerful business accelerator—and Abel Solutions’ customer-centric approach—left a good impression. After a demonstration, the United Properties team was convinced the solution was right for them. For the project, the Abel Solutions team explored United Properties’ requirements and “wish lists” in depth then designed and engineered the tailored REALTY|share framework. The solution, which runs on SharePoint for Microsoft Office 365, was targeted to exactly match United Properties’ needs, including significant governance of proprietary information.
Specialized platform components developed by Abel Solutions included:
- Automated workflows: From a single update button, users can set up a new property or pursuit (a property “deal”), with REALTY|share automatically consuming critical data, generating a property site and applying metadata based on a unique Document ID provided by the core real estate accounting platform. When users upload additional documents, deals are closed, or property/tenant information is updated in the accounting system, updates are automatically pushed to the REALTY|share platform, ensuring all reports and critical data points are kept in sync.
- Tenant Lease Dashboard: On a daily basis, tenant documents and other information are synched to REALTY|share, integrated with the associated property record and archived in the REALTY|share database for retrieval on demand.
- My One-Stop Portal: Internal and external partners are routed automatically to the property sites associated with them, yet cannot gain access to those for which they do not have appropriate permissions.
“Abel Solutions listened to our pain points and helped design a system that is user-friendly and adaptable over time,” said Riemersma. “It’s amazing to have our essential project documentation in one place—accessible anywhere the Internet is available.”
