“Atos Origin Modernizes Fixed Asset Management of the Municipal Caja de Ahorros of Burgos”

Madrid - March 30, 2004

Atos Origin, a leading international information technology services company, today announced it has signed an agreement with the Municipal Caja de Ahorros of Burgos to sell software licences of its GUIA Real Estate property application for the administration and management of fixed assets portfolios.

This solution will enable the Caja Burgos to achieve a maximum return through the set of tools that facilitates automatic processes, thereby unloading the company of the elevated number of administrative tasks that this type of management requires. It also provides users with exhaustive control systems to manage the large volume of data that is created. All this with a single product that in turn allows for a global vision of the position and profitability of the portfolio, with the possibility of creating simulations in order to calculate budgets and estimations.

GUIA Real Estates completely manages the department's operations, that is: gathers costs and investments, purchases, sales, contract definitions (normal, long standing or atypical rents), processes receipts, works control, accidents, quarrels, commercial management, etc. It also incorporates systems for automatic processes such as calculating repercussions, creating receipts, bank standing orders and the capture of refunds, updating rents, generating notifications to tenants, calculating amortizations, managing VAT taxes, the accounting, etc. As far as the management of the portfolio, tools are provided to facilitate, for example, the automatic updating of the patrimony value, the generation of budgets with the possibility of introducing fictitious situations or simulations or delinquency payments control.

Through GUIA Real Estate, and by simply “clicking”, it is also possible to associate external data to certain application elements thereby allowing visualization of contracts, technical documents, maps, photographs, historic files, bills... from the system itself. The reports are generated in PDF format and there is also the possibility of accessing information contained within the system, which can later be processed externally through the use of office computer tools. The application is available in UNIX and NT, with client/server technology.
