FM and real estate software company Planon has acquired a majority share in Netherlands-based firm Reasult B.V.
The move will help Planon to expand its offering to real estate developers, asset managers and social housing corporations.
Reasult is a software company that optimises the financial performance of real estate portfolios and projects. Its software solutions are used by real estate developers, asset managers and social housing corporations in the Dutch and German-speaking markets. Clients include Amvest, a.s.r. real estate, VolkerWessels and HANSAINVEST.
Its software suite includes applications for real estate development, asset and portfolio management, valuation management and financial planning. Planon plans to combine Reasult’s applications with its own solutions for asset management and tenant management & engagement, into one software suite.
By doing this, Planon aims to support real estate owners and investors in optimising the performance of their portfolio from financial, building operations and tenant engagement perspectives.
Pierre Guelen, CEO and founder of the Planon Group, said: ‘This acquisition is one of the first steps in Planon’s ambitious goals to accelerate its future growth. Planon firmly believes in the strength of Reasult’s solutions and its organisation, both from a technical perspective and due to its extensive market knowledge and experience.
“It is therefore Planon’s plan to continue to expand the Reasult software suite, as it has done with previously acquired solutions such as SamFM and conjectFM.”
Aart Zandbergen, Reasult’s co-founder and CEO, said: “With this move, Reasult will be able to further fulfil its strategy of offering a leading platform for optimising real estate in the broadest sense.
“The Planon and Reasult solutions are complementary, which drives synergy and innovation. This collaboration will allow us to serve our customers in the best way possible and deliver innovative products to help real estate companies be ‘the best in class’.”
