SINGAPORE – March 2020 – Anacle Systems Limited (“Anacle”) has been awarded a major project for the development of Smart Estate Management Systems (“SEMS”) from the Housing Development Board (“HDB”) of Singapore.

SEMS, built with Anacle’s market leading Simplicity® Business Software (“Simplicity”) will manage HDB’s complex and diverse portfolio of properties, digitalizing all workflows onto a singular platform as well as creating applications and tools to enhance service offerings to the public.

Incorporating cutting edge technologies such as 3D digital twinning and machine learning, SEMS will streamline operations and enable quicker decision-making with its intuitive user interface, ultimately improving service delivery to the public. HDB employees and external service providers can quickly identify root causes for asset failures and maintenance issues, reducing asset downtime.

In line with the Smart Town initiative, SEMS underscores HDB’s drive to transform the public housing landscape and create quality holistic living environment for all.  Leveraging on data analytics and artificial intelligence, HDB seeks to innovate and redefine the shopping experience at HDB commercial complexes and precinct shops. The public and residents can also look forward to interactive applications offering a variety of services to foster community engagement such as a feedback channel and virtual marketplace where approved vendors can respond to renovation needs listed by residents.

“This is one of the largest smart estate management software projects awarded in Asia and it shows HDB’s drive to bring cutting edge technologies to the heartlands. This platform is not only about improving productivity, it is also about creating an ecosystem built on human-centric technology where everyone can benefit, including the residents. We are definitely looking forward to building a smart and scalable platform roadmap with HDB toward the smart town of the future”, said Alex Lau, CEO of Anacle Systems Limited.

The Smart HDB Town Framework was unveiled by HDB in 2014 with the aim to create a better living environment for the people with smart technologies. The framework identified five key areas: Smart Planning, Smart Environment, Smart Estate, Smart Living and Smart Community. HDB has since launched a multitude of initiatives to promote smart and sustainable living, including the recent Smart Green Homes Initiative in Teck Ghee District which was awarded to Anacle as well.
