EXPO REAL 2018 – everybody’s talking about digitisation

This year, crowds once again descended on Munich, heading for Europe’s largest real-estate trade fair, the EXPO REAL. Both the number of exhibitors and visitors reached new record levels. Of course, PROMOS consult was also represented with a trade fair stand – after all, we have many innovations to offer in response to questions with a focus on “digitisation of the real-estate industry”.

It was already clear in advance that this would be the main topic of conversation at the EXPO REAL. In a mood barometer for the trade fair, “40.1 percent of those surveyed stated that their company offers customers and business partners digital products and services. There are offers along the entire value creation chain. People see great potential for the future particularly in the areas of ’management and operation’, ‘planning and construction’ and ‘marketing’.”

PROMOS consult’s trade fair programme was therefore in tune with the times and the visitors’ requirements – we delighted the many listeners with presentations on innovative and well thought-out solutions. A total of three applications from the easysquare app family were presented live:

  • The rental app: Organise rentals efficiently and in a networked manner
  • The tenant app: Mobile communication – this is where tenants, managers and craftsmen meet
  • The management app: Raises inventory management to a new level

Our expert discussion “Meet the expert – are you ready for the SAP S/4HANA® transformation?” was also well received. With S/4HANA®, SAP is supplying the latest generation of its Business Suite, which will entirely replace the current SAP® ERP in the coming years and bring users a decisive step forward in their digital transformation. A lively exchange arose between the visitors and our experts, Marc Hoffmann, Product Owner Real Estate at SAP, and Thoralf Beyer, Chief Sales Manager at PROMOS consult. PROMOS consult’s experience with the new implementation of and migration to S/4HANA® were of particular interest to listeners.

For us, personally, there was another noteworthy moment at this year’s EXPO REAL. At a champagne reception, we raised our glasses together with long-term and new contacts to the 20th anniversary of our company, reminisced about old times and developed new ideas.

Many thanks to everyone who visited us at our trade fair stand this year. We enjoyed all the interesting conversations and stimulating exchanges, and are looking forward to seeing you again next year. Last, but by no means least, here are a few impressions of the EXPO REAL 2018 for you:
