The co-operation is based on an existing agreement, and the duration of the renewed agreement is three years with extension until further notice. Implementation of the service is expected to be finalized by January 1, 2023, when the responsibility for real estate management services will be transferred from Finnish municipalities to counties. In addition to the recurring revenue, the contract includes service options to be agreed upon later.
“The chosen solution represents a comprehensive tool which allows the authorities to get a complete and real-time situation picture of its real estate portfolio. Management and service personnel will be able to increase efficiency and make better decisions,” said Sten-Roger Karlsen.

At the same time, we are providing a big picture of the sectors’ real estate related costs and investments. This information helps us all to operate efficiently in healthy, safe and appropriate facilities.
