Urbanise signs first New Zealand deal with FM provider One Place
Urbanise.com Limited (Urbanise) (ASX:UBN) announced today that it has entered into a Hosted Services Agreement (HSA) with facilities and property management company One Place. One Place currently delivers property services to 12 buildings and 1,300 individual units in and around Auckland.
Under the agreement, One Place will use the Customer Portal and Service Catalogue functionality of the Urbanise Platform to deliver a range of additional behind the door services to tenants and owner-occupiers. One Place will also use Urbanise’s Operations Centre and Mobile Workforce modules to more effectively manage its onsite contractors and comply with the New Zealand Government’s new Health and Safety At Work Act, which comes into effect on 4 April 2016.
Commenting on the announcement, One Place Director Phil Porteous said, “We are excited to be a foundation partner with Urbanise in the New Zealand marketplace. We constantly strive to add value to our ever-growing client base through innovation and operational efficiency. The Urbanise Platform will allow One Place to remove manual processes, streamline service delivery to end-users and provide a range of additional services to building occupants. Facilities management is changing and One Place will proudly be at the forefront of this change with Urbanise’s disruptive technology.”
Urbanise CEO Ben Churchill added, “With a number of our Australian customers also operating in New Zealand – extending our regional sales efforts across the Tasman was an obvious next step. Over the past six months we have experienced growing interest from New Zealand property managers regarding the broad functionality of the Urbanise Industry Cloud Platform and we are pleased that One Place has selected our technology to expand its service offering.”
Urbanise will receive variable platform usage fees based on the number of work orders processed.
