Relaunch of reporting, design with MS Office.

Task

Allreal has realigned its financial communications. Its entire reporting, annual reports and the media produced on this basis are tailored across media to the user behaviours of the various groups of stakeholders. In a one-stop-shop capacity Linkgroup took charge of concept, design and production as well as for the deployment of SmartNotes. SmartNotes is a disclosure management system and publishing platform rolled into one. From the first data import through to the final version, users work in the familiar MS Office environment. Finally a layout robot produces a fully designed PDF from the Office templates. The software is also established at EFG, Geberit, Meyer Burger, Swatch, Swissquote, Swiss Re and more than 200 further customers.

Client

Allreal combines a stable-income real estate portfolio with the activities of a general contractor (development and delivery). The value of its real estate portfolio comes to CHF 4.53 billion. In fiscal 2020, the project volume effectively handled amounted to CHF 363 million. Allreal employs more than 200 people in Zurich, Basel and Bern. Its operational headquarters are located at Glattpark. The company operates only in Switzerland. Allreal Holding AG is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.

“Allreal has been working with Linkgroup since the IPO in 1999. Their range of services spans the production of a broad selection of printed and online material. Worthy of particular mention is the recent implementation of interactive reporting on the basis of our new-look, new-content reporting platform. Regardless of the complexity and scope of the project, our partners at Linkgroup display professionalism, flexibility and consistently impressive commitment. Linkgroup is an extremely reliable partner, and we’re convinced working with them would benefit any communications department.”
