Sean Ryan is CEO of Aspen Grove, a software solution provider for property sales and property management business processes within the US market.
Aspen Grove provides - ‘Start-to-finish’ Software Solutions for Real Estate Professionals that encompass the areas of property sales and property management business processes.
From their base in Tralee, county Kerry, Aspen Grove and its associated companies, Donseed and DCS Energy Savings, provide software solutions that connect clients to business processes that not only need to be managed, tracked, and reported on but also lend themselves to employing ‘Software as a Service’ or a ‘Cloud-based’ model.
These processes can include the maintenance, repair, pre-marketing valuations, title, listing, offers and closing marketing of property assets.
US-based Asset Managers - such as Government Sponsored Entities that include Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Banks and Investment Firms - typically add properties to their portfolios and outsource all or part of the management, maintenance and sales process to real estate agents or brokers.
They, in turn, may further outsource business to vendors for specific work such as lawn care, winterisation, appraisals, and numerous other activities.
Aspen’s software solutions track these processes and monitor all interactions and financial transactions that take place between such parties.
Donseed Workplace Management System is a solution designed to specifically focus on managing the construction phase of commercial property development.
This can include the management of time and attendance on-site, controlling site access, and monitoring compliance with health and safety requirements.
DCS Energy Savings, is an internet hub designed for the tracking and management of all energy-related consumption on commercial properties and construction sites.
These three corporate entities cover a broad spectrum of solutions for the international property management and maintenance market.
By leveraging the group’s technology platform, Ryan and his executive management team have witnessed unparalleled growth across the group since its buy-out by the current owners in 2008.
At that time, the company had just 25 team members and in the intervening four years, revenues have more than tripled throughout the group and profits have been achieved on an annual basis.
