Länsimetro

Administer’s financial management supports Länsimetro in their business transformation.

Administer has proved itself a valuable partner as Länsimetro transforms its business.

Länsimetro is currently extending the metro line to Kivenlahti, in addition to already owning the metro stations, tracks, and technical infrastructure between the stations of Ruoholahti and Matinkylä.

“Our three-person Administer team functions as if it was a part of our own finance department. They work closely together with us and handle our accounting and payroll,” says Matias Johansson, Länsimetro’s CFO.

Flexibility as a competitive advantage

The past year has seen Länsimetro expand its business from a pure investment organization to ownership too. CFO Johansson states that the flexibility of Administer’s services has stood the tests of rapid change and development.

“The most important attribute of an accounting firm is the ability to react quickly to customer needs. This applies both to the company itself and the personnel. We got valuable support from Administer while planning new business. We are very satisfied with that.”

Service with a personality

“The three-person team assigned to us is mainly dedicated to Länsimetro. The team has been with us for a long time. They have the ability to take the company’s history into account in their recommendations. We consider this crucial, as we are a nonprofit project organization,” Johansson describes.

The team consists of seasoned experts, which has been more pivotal to customer satisfaction than the systems used. eFina has, however, proved to be reliable even in the heavy user and invoice traffic of Länsimetro.

“Accounting is human labor, much like being a real estate manager or doctor. When you find a good one, stick to them. It’s the people who make the service in the end.

Länsimetro’s mission is to build a metro line from Ruoholahti to Kivenlahti. The stretch from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti consists of seven kilometers of track and five stations. A metro depot will be built in Sammalvuori. In 2017, a 14-kilometer line and eight stations were built between Ruoholahti and Matinkylä. Länsimetro Oy owns the track, stations, and technical infrastructure, but the stretch has been operated by HKL since October 2017. https://www.lansimetro.fi/en, @metrorakentuu
