The Finnish Real Estate Management Federation
Faster, better, stronger, leaner
THE REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT BUSINESS IS IN TRANSFORMATION
There is an ongoing generation shift within the entrepreneurs and customers expect more in the digital age. Industry62 helps Finnish Real Estate Management Federation to develop digital services up to date by doing design and UX.
The purpose of real estate management is to ensure high-quality living for apartment dwellers. It's an expert service that helps everyday life in residences run smoothly and makes sure housing costs stay on budget.
The field of real estate management is currently in a state of transformation: People expect better and faster service. Digitalisation has altered not only the customers' expectations, but is also bringing new entrepreneurs into the field.
This shift has put pressure on the federation's digital services, that this project set out to alleviate with a faster, more user-friendly web service.

Fast & Lean UX design
Continuous development of the federations digital services are done in Lean UX method with Aucor and Ambientia, which means design and development occurs in tandem through short agile sprints. In Lean UX we validate our previous design decisions by analysing usage data and continue to design new interfaces and update excisting ones, end-users in our minds.
is a powerful tool for project group to switch perspective to a member's point of view.
Before agile sprints we have defined federations target groups (federation members, i.e. real estate managers and also dwellers in residences). By using analytics reports and surveys, we gather information and opinions from the target groups and make different user scenarios. From these scenarios we pick the most recurring ones and make detailed user stories.
After the perspective change the first prototype can be shaped up and the content creation can begin. Later on, user-testing is important to validate design decisions.
