Connecting through K2Portal

With Keppel Land's focus on regional expansion, there is a need to cultivate a knowledge-sharing culture among employees by ensuring that information is readily available to all offices and employees across the region. In this respect, a web-based Kepland Knowledge Portal (K2Portal) was launched in 2004, allowing staff access across different time zones through the web browser. Overseas offices and mobile users have secured access to the portal through a virtual private network.

The K2Portal, with its comprehensive set of document and management capabilities, enables departments, project teams and individuals in the local and regional offices to centralise data, exchange ideas and access relevant information from an online central depository. By contributing and managing shared content, staff can obtain relevant information across departments, extract data and news from websites and collate information for management reporting. The portal also acts as a gateway to many computerised systems available in the Company.

At the same time, the portal is critical in ensuring timely communication of new initiatives and policies to staff, and serves as a source of reference and updates of existing procedures and processes. For instance, corporate governance policies on whistle-blower protection, insider trading and safeguarding of information were disseminated to employees via the K2Portal.

Reaching Out with IT

In line with the Company's direction to tap the regional markets for growth, the Information Technology (IT) Unit provides services and support to the Company's overseas subsidiaries and joint venture companies.

In 2004, the IT Unit customised and implemented the property sales and marketing system for two residential projects in China - The Seasons in Beijing and The Waterfront in Chengdu. The system automates sales bookings, monitors progress payments and generates management and sales reports. This system will be further enhanced for The Botanica township in Chengdu, which is developed by the joint venture company, CityOne Township Development.

Subsidiaries such as Spring City Golf and Lake Resort in Kunming, Sedona Hotels International and Ria Bintan Golf Club have harnessed the potential of the internet in their corporate websites. Besides information about the resort and hotel facilities, interactive features such as online reservations and virtual tours of facilities have been incorporated.
