Fraser Williams Secures Contract with Aldar Properties PJSC | 10 January 2007
ALDAR Properties PJSC, Abu Dhabi’s leading integrated Property Development, Investment and Management Company have chosen Fraser Williams’ fully web-developed Horizon Property Management System to play a key role in the management of its developments.
Horizon’s Property Database contains every conceivable element of a company’s real estate data and provides for financial, lease, space, project, land and facilities management.
ALDAR will use Horizon to manage its world-class real estate developments in Abu Dhabi, the UAE and eventually globally.
Current ALDAR projects which will benefit from the Horizon system include; Al Raha Beach, a prestigious planned community at the gateway to Abu Dhabi, built alongside 8.5km of natural beachfront, which will house over 120,000 residents in a 15 million dollar development. Others are: Al Gurm Resort, an eco-friendly waterfront resort and residential complex built amongst the mangroves; Imperial College London Diabetes Centre – a recently opened state of the art treatment and research facility and Central Market, a superb and fully integrated mixed-use scheme at the heart of Abu Dhabi – a showcase project for ALDAR and the city.
ALDAR Properties’ Head of Property Management, Melanie Barwick, said: “Horizon will provide us with an essential business tool to allow us to maximize the performance of our assets. With a high level of functionality and flexibility it is an easy-to-use property management solution that is adaptable to the needs of our different projects and users.
“This system will enable ALDAR to analyse and manage all information relating to our current and future property portfolio. It represents ALDAR’s commitment to setting standards for best practice in the UAE Real Estate Sector.”
In addition to the basic system, key Horizon modules, such as Alerter and the Business Reporting and Project Management will be used for developments where these functions are particularly relevant.
Martin Betts, EMEA Sales Manager of Fraser Williams, added:’“The Horizon system’s high level of flexibility and user focus means that we are able to match ALDAR’s exact requirements for their developments. The 100% web designed technology will allow authorised ALDAR personnel to gain access to the system from anywhere in the world at any time.”
“As a global company, Fraser Williams has the ability to provide Aldar with worldwide support and back-up 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
