No sooner has the property industry become acquainted with terms such as “lean”, “agile” and “scrum”, up pops a new buzzword for innovative forms of cooperation, namely “innovation track”. The term stands for constructive dialogue on new approaches to commercial real estate business and international knowledge transfer, and queries whether a company can really be a customer and an innovation partner at the same time.
If anyone has the answer to this question, it has to be Sander Groot. After all, his employer, Sweco, has been one of Kalshoven Automation’s clients for many years and recently teamed up with the Aareon subsidiary in a project aimed at optimising and expanding the functional scope of its ERP solution for real estate management (REMS – Real Estate Management System). The motivation for the project came from a prior decision by Sweco to transfer its IT operations to Kalshoven’s data centre and use the ERP solution from the cloud in the future.
