immopac® Modules / Valuation

By law you are required to appraise your portfolio on a regular basis using an appropriate method of valuation. In Switzerland the DCF method has become the industry standard. In other countries further methods are common such as the earing capacity value method in Germany.

The valuation module is a professional solution for the one-off and recurring valuations of individual properties and entire property portfolios. In addition to a two-phase DCF method, various other methods are also implemeted; for example, the earning capacity value and the net asset value methods.

This module can be used autonomously, or integrated with other immopac modules. A history of all data relevant;for valuation is stored in the central data warehouse. When performing a later re-evaluation, a substantial increase in efficiency can be achieved, and therefore lower valuation costs.

immopac® features a comprehensive ready-to-print valuation report and provides the possibility to publish valuations on a secure contentfloor via the immoapc® Online Business Center.

The system is thus ideal for professional real estate valuations.

immopac® Processes

IT-based mapping of business processes with a workflow management system offers high potential for increased efficiency and quality of real estate property management.

With immopac® Processes all functionalities of the standard version now also offer the possibility to map entire business processes. Thus, in addition to immopac®’s well-known information-oriented structure, a process-oriented perspective is also offered.

immopac® Processes include an efficient workflow management system directly integrated into immopac® , which takes over the management of individual tasks. The integrated development environment also makes available a graphic process designer for the definition and visualisation of the workflows. All functions of the standard modules can be used directly for the definition of workflows. Thus, for example, if a valuation process is to be mapped, the specific functions of the valuation module can be accessed directly.

To support cross-company processes the immopac® cloud (OBC) is available. In the process, external partners can access selected contents in the cloud with the immopac® web app and consequently execute individual steps of the process.

The application possibilities of immopac® Processes are vast: The greatest efficiency potentials certainly lie with repetitive tasks, in which several persons/roles are involved or if the execution of the different stages are to be monitored resp. authorised. Processes for resubmission and authorisation, valuation, transactions, Capex management and generally on reporting and controlling are just some examples that are particularly suitable to be mapped with immopac® Processes.
