AIS Report

Replacement and extension of AIS Report (Asset Management Information System) for reporting of financial and opretaional data from commercial bulduings in Central and Eastern Europe. 

Initial Situation:

  • Existing system developed by a commissioned individual developer.
  • The existing MS Access database was not efficient enough, the application response times were in the range of seconds. 
  • The lease contract was not strictly separated from the leased unit, which made detailed filtering and data comparison impossible.
  • Increasing problems with transfer and synchronization of data between the building and the HQ.
  • The developer didn’t have sufficient capacity for fixes, administration and requirements for further system development.

Solution:

  • Definity Systems carried out a detailed analysis of the legacy system and eliminated ambiguous definitions and monitored the processes concerning the system and the related logics, calculations and validations. 
  • Definity System designed a database with strict distinction between business entities (building / contract / unit) to enable detailed filtering and data comparison. 
  • New requirements have been incorporated into the system, for instance advanced data checks, predictions, interactive plans, photo documentation collection, improved ergonomics and a tool for creating custom user reports.

Benefits:

  • Universal system for multi-currency, multi-country and multi-purpose (retail, office, logistic, residential) real estate operation.
  • Streamlined checks of reported values thanks to automated validation.
  • Short application response times made the process of entering a report the data much faster.
  • The system now manages 30% more data than before.
  • Historical data have been corrected during the transfer to the new system.
  • The system enables creation of custom reports and detailed filtering and comparison of values and supports commercial reporting and portfolio analysis by using modern analytical tools such as heat maps and dashboards. 
  • The system is being developed further thanks to the sufficient availability of developers
