Raahepolis – ALMA - An agile system for all real estate management
Raahepolis owns over 50 000 m² of office, production and logistic spaces in the Raahe region. As a result of municipal mergers, the organization is made up of several companies. Several different external actors have provided the maintenance services of these premises over the years. It is thus not surprising that the documentation of the different buildings and any work conducted was deficient or even non-existent.
Managing its property information caused Raahepolis a great deal of problems and extra work, until in 2016 it began collaboration with ALMA, and everything changed.
“Drawings, operating documentation, electrical and authority inspections, maintenance logs, reminders and lately, fiber optic network management. All these are now in one place and the whole thing works logically. We are also able to save important client emails together with their attachments in the system. This is really useful, as these often involve contractual issues. In this way, we are able to record them immediately, and easily find them again when needed,” Kari Malkamäki thanks ALMA for its diversity and ability to scale its services to the needs of real estate operators.
Raahepolis trusts ALMA with its real estate maintenance information and documentation
ALMA, which is much used in industrial production plant maintenance, was customized to answer to the needs of Raahepolis as regards, for example, terms and specific
“We are extremely satisfied with how ALMA took on Raahepolis and its problems. We didn’t really know ourselves what we specifically needed, but it’s the sign of a true expert when someone listens and is able to tell you and guide you on what you might need. ALMA and its system meet our needs perfectly,” says Malkamäki.
