Powerful Network Investment Management
We have developed a solution for the investment management challenges electricity utilities are facing. Network Investment Management is a powerful application for comprehensive management of network investments from planning to monitoring and analyses.
With the new application, the information needed to manage network investments is available in a single location. Consequently the information remains up to date and fully reliable, and can be utilized when planning network investments.
Supporting Building Projects
A building project involves numerous stages and participants. With the help of our new application, municipalities can offer their customers an electronic service to support building processes throughout the entire building project.
Tekla eServices, Building Support application utilizes spatial data and makes building project management more efficient by enabling communication between the project parties in matters related to permits, building inspections and surveys. Also planners, foremen, and other people in charge, neighbors and authors of statements can easily play their part within the building project.

Customers Value Reliability and Partnership
In the fall of 2012, we conducted a customer satisfaction survey to assess our performance and need for development as a customer oriented professional partner. The survey was sent by email to over 2,000 Tekla Infra & Energy business area’s customers. Over 600 responded to the survey, resulting in a response rate of 28%.
We have been very successful in a number of individual factors in our operations. Our customers, for instance, ranked reliability and partnership among the most successful factors. We continue to develop our operations on the basis of the customer satisfaction survey results, focusing on the issues our customers consider important.
