Digital data exchange in the housing industry:
The VdW Bayern (Association of Bavarian Housing Companies) has entered into a partnership with the Munich-based TÜV SÜD subsidiary uniscon GmbH. The cooperation should benefit the members of the association in the future.
With almost 500 member companies, the VDW Bayern is the leading specialist and interest association of the housing industry in Bavaria. In addition to auditing the annual financial statements, his tasks primarily include providing comprehensive advice to his association members. Confidential documents and documents are exchanged on a regular basis. These processes are to be increasingly digitally mapped, says Christian Fischer, Head of the Digitalization and IT Service Department at the Association of Bavarian Housing Companies.
“It was important to us to find a collaboration solution that not only meets our high security requirements, but is also easy and intuitive to use,” says Fischer. With uniscon’s idgard ®, they found what they were looking for: “We use the service not only for committee and board communication, but also for the secure exchange of project data with customers, clients and external service providers, for example in the areas of tax consulting and accounting.“ As a satisfied customer, VDW Bayern now also wants to give its members the opportunity to get to know the service and its advantages.
Highest level of data protection for data transfer with lawyers and tax consultants
Markus Kieslich, VP of Marketing &Inside Sales at uniscon, sees the future cooperation with VDW Bayern above all as an opportunity: “After the exchange with Mr. Fischer, it was clear to me that we can help the members of VDW Bayern with idgard® to implement workflows in everyday business life safely and in compliance with data protection.”, emphasizes Kieslich. Christian Fischer also sees the clear added value for the association members: “Whether it is the exchange of data arising in connection with tenant matters, or the provision of project rooms in which member companies, for example, can view and exchange documents together with buyers, developers and other parties – with idgard®, all parties involved are always on the safe side.“
But not only associations benefit from this high level of security: with idgard®, sensitive data of all kinds can be securely stored, synchronized and exchanged within a company as well as with external partners. This is ensured by uniscon’s internationally patented sealed cloud technology, which demonstrably excludes unauthorized access to data at any time. This makes the service particularly attractive for companies that work a lot with personal data and documents worth protecting, as is common practice in the housing industry, among other things.
