Local Yara employees are some of the first to use a new online property management system as part of a $7.5 million contract secured by integrated property and construction group Pindan.

Pindan had been appointed to deliver property and maintenance services over a five-year period for Yara Pilbara Fertilisers and Nitrates, which had 180 company-owned and leased properties in which to house its Karratha-based workforce.

Pindan asset management managing director Stephen Arndt said Yara employees would be given access to Pindan’s new mobile application, PINDANFIX.

“PINDANFIX is a mobile web portal that gives tenants the ability to report work that needs to be done and track its progress from their smartphone 24/7,” he said.

“The app also allows us as the contractor to collect vital information on the maintenance issue, including current photos, instantly so we can quickly diagnose the issue and fix it first time.”

Yara Pilbara general manager Chris Rijksen said the contract with Pindan aimed to deliver the best property management services for Yara’s workforce.

“Our staff and their families can enjoy the Pilbara lifestyle better, knowing that we are taking care of their home,” he said.

“Yara employees and family members will be able to report a maintenance issue via smartphone or other device, send through information including pictures, and then check up on progress at any time.”
