Travelling to Mid-Norway

CASE: Municipality of Trondheim, Norway

As you might know, MainManager consists of a mix of Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic employees, and we are not necessarily residing in our native country. We have Icelanders at the office in Oslo, and I am a Norwegian ‘gal’ living and working in Denmark. So I always get a little excited, when I get to connect with our clients in Norway. Our yearly ERFA meeting is certainly a nice opportunity. This year’s ERFA was no exception. Our project specialist Henriette and I were seated at the same table as Kenneth Løkslett from the Municipality of Trondheim’s Property department.

Our customer in Mid-Norway

Trondheim Property is the largest unit in the municipality of Trondheim, with close to 600 employees. They are responsible for management, operation, maintenance and cleaning of all 4000 municipal buildings – approximately 1 mill m2. They are also Mid-Norway’s largest owner / developer, and builds for approx. one billion NOK every year. Kenneth – and a couple of his colleagues – participated on last year’s ERFA meeting as brand-new customers. This year he was one of our guest speakers. First of all, he gave us insight in how they will use MainManager software for efficient operation and maintenance, with the help from 2D drawings and municipal mapping. Furthermore, how the 2D drawings likewise will be a great asset to the planning of cleaning tasks in the municipality.

Getting ready for work

Henriette has been working for quite some time on creating interactive 2D drawings of all kinds of buildings managed by the municipality. For now, a total of 919 drawings are ready to be implemented to the system.

Working with MainManager

About this time of the year – 26 years ago – I was living in Trondheim. It was my first real home away from home, and I was working at a primary school called Charlottenlund barneskole. It was a great school. What I remember the most, is that the kids were cool, and that the teachers were really, REALLY into soccer – their pride and joy – the city’s team Rosenborg. I finally left Trondheim to live in Iceland for some months, and I fell in love with the beautiful island. Now my Icelandic employer has taken me back to Trondheim. Among other things, because of 2D drawings of my old workplace, Charlottenlund. Henriette was teaching the team at the Municipality of Trondheim’s Property department on how to implement the drawings to MainManager.

I was there to assist – but also to see how it works in the customers hands. It’s the absolute best way of finding out how to move next, both for us, but more importantly, for the hands-on users in Trondheim, starting up a whole new system. We went home with a lot of feedback, and the group in Trondheim got insights on how to start up their work of implementing their drawings to the MainManager system. To be continued…

MainManager‘s success leads to second place in Fastest Growing Company Award

On 3rd of May the minister of education, science and culture handed ICEconsult the the Federation of Icelandic Industries award „Vaxtasprotinn 2012“ (e. The startup 2012) for being the second fastest growing company in its size catecory in Iceland.

The main milestone on the path to getting this award is the release of MainManager Version 10, which enabled MainManager to be full-fledged, fully web based FM software.

We are now working on many extremely exiting new features. Among those is new workflow oriented user-interface that will increase visibility and productivity. This addition is planned to be included in the release this fall. MainManager will be present on EuroFM 2013. Be sure to visit our booth to get a sneak and peek of the exiting new features.
