Moreover, automation enables proactive maintenance and cost management, leading to potential cost efficiency in the long run.
- Easing Process Bottlenecks in times of Staff Shortage: As tasks are automated, the reliance on manual labor decreases, the impact of staff absence or sick leave on critical processes such as account receivable and payment management will be eased, ensuring uninterrupted cash flow and financial operations.

- Meeting Changing Vendor Management Needs: Often a resource-intensive process, vendor management, especially when dealing with new service providers with low service value but a similar volume of documents and vendor selection procedures is a key area to automate in most property management companies. While due diligence and cost management remain essential, allocating resources to recruit such vendors can be wasteful. However, with the implementation of ONE Pacific Property Management Automation (OPPMA), a robust vendor self-service portal is provided, offering electronic tendering, vendor scoring, and streamlined procurement processes. This solution has a significant business impact as it enables data-driven performance evaluation and resource utilization of suppliers, ultimately leading to economies of scale in vendor services.

- Cost Control by fixed assets management for shared resources: Effective fixed asset management in property management is crucial to maximize profitability and cost efficiency. Traditional manual procedures for tracking inventory often result in loss or repeat purchases.
