Product Development for Management of Apartment Units Renovations – Case Study
About the client
Product development for the prominent Real Estate Company in Japan that specializes in managing apartment renovations and leases. However, their current processes heavily rely on manual data entry and Excel spreadsheets, leading to inefficiencies, data discrepancies, and time-consuming tasks. To address these challenges and improve their operations, the client sought a product development and centralized tool that would automate and streamline their renovation management activities.
- The client required a unified tool that would significantly reduce manual work, eliminate the need for data re-entry and validation, and provide a consistent method for processing renovation-related data.
- Client needed a central platform to record and display renovation management information, including renovation history, contract history tracking, move-outs, and rent tracking activities.
- Migration from offline to online processes: The client needed to transition their existing offline processes to an online system, requiring careful planning and execution.
- Data discrepancies: Due to the manual data management process, inconsistencies and errors had emerged, leading to inaccurate reporting and analysis.
- Manual report creation and unit analysis: The client relied on manual efforts to generate reports and analyze unit data, resulting in time-consuming tasks and potential errors.
- Rapid product development pace: The client required a quick demo of the system to visualize its capabilities, necessitating a fast-paced development approach.
