Digitalizing Europe’s real estate sector: casavi’s web-based collaboration platform brings all building stakeholders together
The real estate sector is one of Europe’s most important industries, but still largely lagging behind on digital maturity. Munich-based casavi GmbH set out in 2015 to change this by digitally connecting all of a building’s stakeholders on their real estate collaboration platform. More than 650 property management companies in the German-speaking region of Europe already use casavi on a daily basis to manage nearly 50,000 buildings and more than 1 million residential units. Both customer acquisition as well as software usage metrics have increased significantly over the last 12 months, underlining the growing demand for digital assistance to manage properties both professionally as well as efficiently.
casavi’s offering is comprised of a ticket management system for property managers combined with a CRM app for tenants and flat owners and a B2B service provider platform. The latter is addressing an important hurdle to digital transformation in the industry by allowing end-to-end workflows between property managers and their business partners – facility managers, building insurance providers, metering companies or energy suppliers.
For many real estate companies, the current pandemic is adding to the pressure to run their business in a more digital fashion. The ability to allow staff members to effectively work from home is an important factor for an industry which employs approximately 110,000 people in Germany alone.
At the same time IoT solutions for the real estate sector are becoming more and more commonplace, allowing property owners and managers to get a real-time view on their building’s utilisation and health. casavi’s cloud solution is positioning itself as the gateway to combine this building data with business workflows and stakeholder communication already taking place on the casavi platform on a daily basis. Looking ahead, casavi is perfectly suited to pave the way for this technological megatrend in the property management industry.
