Technology investment enhances Kajima’s market-leading management services

Tuesday 14 June 2022

Kajima have invested in an innovative technology solution to ensure the delivery of first-class asset management services.

With an increased focus industry-wide, on contract compliance and performance management, Kajima have invested in an innovative technology solution to ensure the delivery of first-class asset management services to their variety of clients, across the Healthcare, Education and Social Infrastructure sectors. Kajima adopted the Nomio software solution to assist with process automation and overall compliance.

Nomio’s document management technology has also been implemented in order to improve the management of contract documentation, ensuring that they are working from an up-to-date ’single point of truth’ – an industry-wide issue in PFI contract management. The Nomio platform converts all manner of document formats into a ‘smart document’ and AI is then deployed to extract vital information, generating a project timeline capturing all obligations. As variations are agreed these can be ‘overlayed’ ensuring that the most up to date version of a document or clause is always being viewed.

Nomio has been piloted on three of Kajima’s key PFI projects with great success and is now being rolled out across the full portfolio. Kajima’s Head of Kajima’s Asset Management, Kevin Hawkins said: “Our investment in new and innovative technologies such as Nomio and iAuditor, enables my team to continue to deliver first-class management services across our entire portfolio. The adoption of both technologies has increased efficiency, productivity and above all ensures we can more easily manage and verify compliance across all 23 of our PFI contracts. Our team of Asset Managers can now navigate fully conformed contracts and make timely decisions with the information they need at their fingertips. Hours being poured into cross-referencing complicated contract clauses are long-gone with the automated, smart conversion of our documents and Nomio’s high-speed search functionality giving us a confident contractual edge in an ever-evolving PPP environment”.
