||The traditional way: Inflexible and long (up to 5-10 years), i.e. the facilities are not adjustable to the company’s changing needs.
||The Technopolis way: The lease and the floor area are flexible and adjustable to the company’s changing needs.
||The traditional way: Very high at their worst but not transparent, which makes it impossible to compare the overall costs.
||The Technopolis way: Low, transparent and comparable overall costs as all the services are charged at prices negotiated in advance; the basic infrastructure is in place and the company does not use its own resources to manage the facilities.
||The traditional way: Hidden costs can be easily incurred from shopping around for services and resources allocated on administration, which are difficult to include in the total cost.
||The Technopolis way: There are no hidden costs to the company as centralized outsourcing frees its resources from the tendering and administration of the services.
|Number of agreements
||The traditional way: There may be up to 15 agreements in addition to the lease, and managing these eats up resources.
||The Technopolis way: Only one agreement as the management of the services is also outsourced to the facility provider.
||The traditional way: The necessary basic services infrastructure must be tendered in time before moving to the premises. The price and quality vary considerably depending on factors such as location.
||The Technopolis way: The company automatically has access to important services (internet, cleaning, etc.) as soon as it moves in. The costs have already been tendered and are, consequently, lower than on average, while there are no surprises in the quality of the services.
||The traditional way: The availability, quality and price of additional services such as restaurants and well-being services vary considerably depending on factors such as location.
||The Technopolis way: The basic infrastructure for additional services and solutions is in place, and the company can use them easily and flexibly.
||The traditional way: The contract portfolio and services are managed across multiple channels in a decentralized way, which increases the likelihood of human error, overlaps and hidden costs, the sources of which are often hard to pinpoint.
||The Technopolis way: One provider centrally manages and oversees the entire office, service and solution package. The package is easy to understand and there are no overlapping elements.
||The traditional way: Shared infrastructure (including meeting, event and coworking facilities and services) must often be purchased separately from a third party, and the availability, price and quality thereof vary considerably depending on factors such as location.
||The Technopolis way: Shared infrastructure is in place and immediately available to clients in various locations and at a competitive price.
|Networking and community
||The traditional way: In general, the overall solution is not designed to support networking and a sense of community.
||The Technopolis way: The campus environment and shared infrastructure support communal activities and networking. Networking events and other events are regularly arranged at campuses.
||The traditional way: Poor space efficiency as the clients usually obtain a certain number of square meters per workstation.
For example in Helsinki, the average floor area per workstation is 23 m².
|The Technopolis way: Good space efficiency as the client obtains a comprehensive work environment and square meters per employee.
||The traditional way: The premises are obtained simply on the basis of the floor area, i.e. as a product that generally does not contain customer-oriented service development or quality control.
||The Technopolis way: The premises are obtained as a service, and they are always customized to the individual needs of the company and its employees. The client can have support in assessing its needs as well as in designing the work environment.
Customer satisfaction is measured, and the quality of the solution is continuously monitored.
