Joseph Alberga & Michoel Klugmann Lindvest 3625 Dufferin St., Suite 500 Downsview, ON November 6th, 2013 Dear Joseph & Michoel, Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to consider CONASYS as a potential supplier of your online homeowner portals and printed guides for your upcoming project, B.Streets. The following document outlines the complete scope of services you requested including background information, challenges, solution, benefits, service overview and fees.

Background The award winning B.Streets condos will include 195 residential units when it occupies in May. The project will include a mix of first time buyers, downsizers and renters. The unit specific portals/guides will be a valuable asset in the sales process and after sales as a customer service tool as the portal and printed guide will portray the highest of quality for B. Streets Condos. This will also allow the developer to step away from the project and leave the homeowners with a powerful resource to operate their home. At CONASYS, we provide an engaging online platform that is based around long-term client care and service. This platform allows the homeowner to instantly access any amount of information pertaining to their home, while simultaneously providing you, the developer, with a brand engagement tool, enhancing connectivity with your customers. We take immense pride in representing our client’s corporate and project brands. Our homeowner portal and printed guide system creates real value through enabling homeowners to easily protect the biggest investment of their lives, and in doing so it will augment your reputation. We are proud of the long-standing client relationships we have helped develop, and we are equally proud of the long-term relationships we ourselves have developed with some of the industries finest builders and developers throughout North America.

Challenges There are significant pieces of information an owner needs to be aware of and preferably keep on hand when moving into a new home. This list includes proper maintenance and care instructions, a list of trades involved in the build, service procedures, warranty, etc. This list can be somewhat exhausting thus there is a need for an online information resource that will allow a homeowner to increase his or her understanding of their new home; how it functions, it’s characteristics, it’s assets and how to succeed in it’s maintenance and care over many years, as well as what their responsibilities are in regards to their warranty and their specific home. The quality of the online homeowner portal and printed guide should be representative of both your corporate and project brands, enhance your relationship with your customers and allow you to engage them beyond the completion of this project.

Revolutionary Homeowner Portals

Industry Leading Printed Homeowner Guides

Online portals have your project & home specific information available in the cloud 24/7.

A practical tool for all of the information your homeowners need for a successful ownership experience.

Lighten your service load. Provide all applicable information about each home allowing homeowners to access vital information, freeing your team to deal with specific service issues. CONASYS will source and populate each portal with your requested product documentation such as operating manuals, interactive maintenance guides and extended warranty information for the homes components.

Quality that matches your homes. Give your homeowners a printed guide that matches the quality of the homes you build. Our home-specific, professionally printed guides can be customized to include the information you want your homeowners to have. Use your existing material or choose from our best practice templates we have developed from delivering over 35,000 homes.

A better customer experience means more referrals and repeat purchases for your company. We have taken information formerly found in binders and loose papers and delivered them in an interactive portal that is easy to use, reducing the loss of ownership documents. Your customers will receive a tailored homeowner portal that will be the foundation for a successful long term ownership experience.

An Effective Sales & Marketing Tool. Branded to your company and/or community, the professionally printed homeowner guide is effectively used in presentation centres to demonstrate your commitment to customer care. After possession, homeowners will continually be exposed to your brand as they reference their comprehensive guide for all of their ongoing home ownership needs.

Your Brand, Your Portal. CONASYS will co-create the look and feel of your homeowner portals and incorporate your corporate, project and/or community imagery and colors with as much detail as you choose. Match the look and feel to your corporate website and use the portal as an extension of your brand.

Reduce service headaches with a tool homeowners can actually use. Traditional binders are cumbersome and difficult to navigate, leading to unnecessary service calls. Commonly used information such as service & care, warranty procedures and how to operate and maintain the home are easily referenced in our printed guides through the table of contents.
