Estate agents are the vital link when it comes to bringing the right properties and spaces together with the right customers. However, the software which should support them in this field often puts the properties – buildings and spaces – at the focus of their processes. This can lead to an imbalance of information if customer data are not connected and managed accordingly. As the relations to the customers are key to qualitative business success, the software used needs to be able to handle them accurately.
Following Konica Minoltas’ very own business strategy, the all-in-one-solution puts the customer first. for.REALESTATE combines all customer-related activities in one smart solution, optimising sales and marketing, while improving customer services. The seamless integration of all CRM-functionalities, optimised for the real estate business, and the connection to all Microsoft applications benefit every business in this field – no matter if it focuses on real estate or property management.
To reduce the environmental impact of its data centres, Microsoft has set itself a number of goals, which it intends to achieve over time using a variety of measures. Among them:
By 2025, Microsoft expects to power its data centres with 100% additional, new renewable energy generation that matches its electricity consumption on an annual basis.
By 2030, Microsoft will achieve 90% diversion of operational waste at data centres. Four of its data centres are already zero waste certified: Dublin in Ireland; and San Antonio, Quincy and Boydton in the US.
Data centre cooling operations consume a lot of water. By 2024, Microsoft will reduce water waste in its data centre operations by 95%.
Cement accounts for around 8% of global emissions. Microsoft is reducing how much cement it uses in its data centres by opting for 56-day rather than 28-day cure times.
In Europe, the Microsoft data centre in Sweden is the most advanced in terms of sustainability features:
It uses 100% carbon-free energy.
A 24/7 hourly energy matching is done.
It captures rainwater.
It is cooled with outside air only.
It is one of the first sites to use lower-carbon renewable fuel for backup power — Preem Evolution Diesel Plus. This is the world's first Nordic Eco-labelled diesel and nearly an equivalent reduction in net CO2 emissions compared with standard fossil diesel blends. In general, Microsoft is committed to being diesel free by 2030.
