Revalo utilises a highly computerised platform, enabling it to offer an integrated service for each phase of the management life cycle of an asset.

// PROPERTY ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT

The administrative management of the portfolio, lease agreements, real estate taxation, the management of insurance risks and lease agreements, and the planning and control of costs and revenue are all part of Revalo’s DNA.
These activities are conducted using whichever management tool the Client utilises.
Strengths
Real-time reporting

The industrialisation of compliance processes, a structured start-up phase and the assignment of a Property Manager expert to each commission enable all of Revalo’s Clients to benefit, in line with their objectives, from the experience and professionalism gained over many years of working within a close-knit group.

Risk management

Revalo doesn’t just manage the building’s insurance risks via guarantees provided by the client, it also offers the analysis of specific risks by studying and following sector trends. This is made possible thanks to the high number of assets the company manages. Particular added value is provided by the operational model that’s been specifically designed for the Construction All Risk sector to support large redevelopment projects.

Real estate taxation management 

Revalo currently manages approximately € 40 million in Municipal Property Tax and, over the years, has been able to assist its Clients thanks to a highly qualified team of experts ready with its deep regulatory knowledge and constant monitoring of updates to the current legislation. A know-how which has enabled, in numerous cases, based on the technical characteristics of the managed portfolio, Revalo to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by the legislation to reduce the tax burden of the property.

Arrears management 

Revalo offers its Clients an entire team exclusively dedicated to arrears management, as well as a reporting system that’s been created and customised over the years through know-how which has been developed alongside the Clients on the basis of their varying needs and procedures. In addition, by constantly monitoring payables via monthly coordination meetings with the Client, maintaining a direct relationship with Tenants, and using a highly automated process for managing payment reminders, Revalo constantly ensures arrears are kept to a minimum.

Payments management

Revalo, to support the above-mentioned arrears management process, has also developed functionality within its management system for directly dealing with interbank payment flows from remote banking. This functionality, through a series of preliminary checks, automatically links the payment to the Tenant and allocates it to the appropriate invoice.
This automatism, in addition to greatly reducing the manual effort required from personnel in recording payments, which can now be entirely dedicated to quality control instead, minimises payment attribution errors and ensures Tenant accounts are kept up to date at all times.
Furthermore, the entire process also includes the checking of all bank transactions in the Clients’ accounts, even those not attributable to Tenants (which are “handled” within a dedicated environment), thus allowing quick reconciliation between the bank account balances and those held on the management system.

// BUILDING MANAGEMENT

Technical property management, the core of Revalo’s service offering, consists of overseeing the services provided to the building and the people, monitoring the condition of the property and its regulatory compliance, managing any necessary emergency work, preparing and managing the budget for extraordinary activities, managing the relationship with Tenants and overseeing the satisfactory completion of maintenance activities.
Strengths
Distressed Assets

A unique know-how that has developed in line with the growth of this very segment, understanding, over time, the evolution of the “atypical” needs required by property portfolios of this type.

Commission dedicated teams

Revalo offers teams that are dedicated to each commission, including a Key Account Manager who’s responsible for coordinating the activities of the Building Manager; the team’s structure facilitates the establishment of direct and effective relationships with the Clients’ Asset Management teams and with the Tenants.

On-site presence

Revalo only assigns a limited number of properties to each Building Manager, enabling them to maintain a frequent presence at the property, to build up a good knowledge and understanding of that property, and to be constantly available for the Tenants.

// DOCUMENTS & DATA MANAGEMENT

Revalo carries out a careful check of the technical/administrative documentation to ensure it is complete and in order: from acquiring the existing documentation to analysing any critical issues, and identifying the best ways to correct any irregularities through to the drafting of a transferability report for the property.
Strengths
Virtual Data Room

The document management platform that’s accessible via the web (Virtual Data Room) is a valuable and flexible tool for assisting with ongoing technical and administrative property management activities such as purchasing, financing, leasing and sales.
Indeed, the web platform enables users – investors, professionals, Asset, Building or Fund managers – to quickly read documents and rapidly prepare summary or analysis reports of all the documentation pertaining to a particular asset.

International standards

Revalo utilises RICS standards for measuring surface areas to offer Italian and, above all, foreign investors objective tools to immediately understand the characteristics of the building portfolio under analysis and/or being managed.

Building Database

From the moment it takes responsibility for an asset, Revalo ensures the completeness and suitability of the Building Database.
Indeed, Revalo is equipped with automated IT monitoring tools to ensure any errors in the property’s land registry data and compliance with tax obligations are kept to a minimum, using management tools able to interface the management database with the SISTER platform, the depository for official Italian land registry data.

// PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Revalo offers a management service to its Clients for handling extraordinary maintenance and capex operations that are particularly complex and significant. The activity consists mainly of coordinating the team of professionals who are responsible for each of the process phases: planning, works supervision, health & safety coordination and inspections. It also involves the coordination of the authorisation process with the competent authorities and of the building phase, as well as providing support to the Client during the tender process.
Strengths
Design evaluation

Revalo’s technical office is able to analyse, both financially and technically, the redevelopment projects, so as to suggest alternative design solutions that may reduce the financial impact without affecting quality, evaluating the completeness of the bills of quantities as well as the operational feasibility of the projects.

Site Project Manager 

Revalo ensures the participation of one or more Site Project Managers in site meetings, monitoring the progress of work activities so as to ensure the project is on track to meet all its targets in terms of deadlines, costs and quality.

Reporting

For each activity Revalo provides a set of clear and thorough reports: weekly reports to highlight any critical issues arising during work and monthly reports to analyse the general progress of the project, providing the Client with a clear and concise overview of costs, progress against deadlines and the quality of the build.

Construction site platform

Revalo has implemented, within its systems, a specific area for dynamically managing and monitoring construction sites; this environment, during the start-up phase, is populated with all the documentation produced by all the parties involved. This documentation is also monitored, using alerts defined at the beginning of the work activities, so as to ensure all deadlines and legal requirements are fully respected.

Assistance with defining work activities

For each project Revalo pays particular attention, during both the planning and execution phases, to the future management of the development in terms of both costs and ease of maintenance. This is achieved thanks to its well established expertise in the technical management of real estate. As a result it is therefore capable of providing guidance at both the project design and execution levels.

// PROCUREMENT

Revalo, via its single Procurement Office, is able to maximise economies of scale thanks to its strong contract negotiating position, managing the services, supplies and works procurement processes with maximum transparency and effectiveness. In addition, a meticulous supplier preselection and approval operation enables Revalo’s Building Managers to concentrate on their core activities.
Strengths
Vendor Management

Revalo has established a Vendor Rating system to assess and monitor the performance of contractors. The Procurement Office carries out, in collaboration with the Building Managers, a systematic survey of the information gathered on contractor companies. This includes their conduct during the tender process as well as the quality and punctuality of their work during contract execution. Each supplier is assigned a Vendor Rating index which is particularly useful for selecting which companies to invite to tender.

Tender process traceability

Revalo’s Procurement Office uses an e-procurement application which, in addition to the important goal of reducing the time it takes to complete the process, provides a trace of each operation carried out. This automatic archiving optimises processing times and offers an audit trail for internal inspections or audits carried out by external control bodies.

Specialised contracts

The internal legal office, specialised in real estate matters, has prepared contract documents which are periodically reviewed and updated, including in response to changes in the relevant legislation. The contract types include professional service contracts, framework and call-off contracts, equipment operation and maintenance contracts, and tender contracts. In each case Revalo’s primary objectives are to ensure operational effectiveness and to protect the property owner from civil or criminal liabilities, including those set forth by Law no. 231.

// ANALYSIS & REPORTING

The Analysis & Reporting function provides dedicated assistance in drafting the client’s annual budget, independently preparing the initial data output, to be analysed in detail together with the client. Revalo’s support with the process doesn’t just end once the budget is accepted: it continues throughout the year, providing assistance, in addition to producing interim forecasts, in analysing the data via a series of dedicated reports which are made available online ready for the client to use. Revalo also offers assistance in providing data to support the process of periodically valuing the properties.
Strengths
Flexibility

Extensive experience and the partnership with its IT service providers enables the provision of 360° support, customised to meet the client’s needs with the possibility, during the portfolio start-up phase, to personalise the set of reports and how the information they contain is set out, making them available on a dedicated portal.

Real-time data management

Revalo’s service model makes it possible to update, in real time, how the data and related analysis is displayed, whenever the needs of the client’s business requires them to be modified.

Variance analysis

Revalo supports the monitoring of the data it manages, including analysing the variances with the budget for every single item. Depending on the client’s requirements, the analysis can be adjusted to examine different aspects: economic, financial, temporal and dimensional.
