SAUDI ARABIA - Real Estate & Construction
Daifallah Al-Hasni was formerly the founder and CTO of Kinda Gulf Co, an integrated and automated real estate evaluation system. He has over 15 years of experience in B2B and B2G real estate solutions development focusing on user experience and AI in high performance environments.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: Simaat is a leading cloud-based proptech platform for property management that helps companies in the real estate sector manage their daily operations efficiently and in a better way. The current value of contracts on the Simaat platform has reached SAR2.5 billion to date, which is 1.7% of the actual market size.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: Property management is an expensive business and requires a high number of human resources and several different divisions to support the operations and customers. Simaat property management solutions provides automations for all operations using the latest technology, machine learning, big data, and fintech. These solutions eliminate human errors, save time, and reduce the cost of human resource as a result of automated operations. As a result, property management companies have the financial room to serve their customers in a better way.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 helped the government sectors to improve their services to be part of the digitalized government. Simaat has recognized the importance of integrated government services and was the first to integrate with the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Housing, the central bank, and many more. These integration efforts boost the performance of operations, and real estate companies can do all their work from one platform.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: The integration will improve the user experience and accelerate the registration of contracts from 15 minutes to 1 minute through the Simaat platform. It will also eliminate human errors by standardizing contracts and avoid double entries of contracts on two platforms.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: We view our customers as partners that we grow alongside with, and they see Simaat as an added value for their business. We work to ensure this relationship provides mutual benefits, and this is the type of relationship that inspires more customers to join Simaat to be part of the successful partnership. In addition, we participate in local and regional events to promote our services.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: Expansion requires investment in proptech technology, and the current benchmark of our services does not exist in the world the way Simaat operates because it is a unique service that gathers all the government-required services for real estate on one platform. Our platform was developed in-house with regional needs in mind. We are in talks with different investors individually to understand what investors can add to Simaat.
Daifallah Al-Hasni: We have achieved all our targets in 2022, which include building solid communication and integration with different governmental sectors and expanding our base of customers. In 2023, we aim to double our market share to 3.4%, which is equivalent to SAR5 billion in contracts value, and we expect to reach that by continuing to focus on the growth of Simaat customers and expanding our services to different sectors of real estate.
