Two complementary software businesses – Zuuse and Progressclaim – have merged. The combined Zuuse and Progressclaim solution will be a global leading software platform for construction and building operations.
Leading Asset Owners and Operators
WHAT IS PROGRESSCLAIM? WHAT IS ZUUSE?
Progressclaim is a cloud collaboration platform managing the entire construction project progress claim, assessment and approval process.
Zuuse is an asset lifecycle solution blending 3D BIM capability, asset management and mobility to reduce costs, drive greater control and enable better decisions.
WHAT IS THE RATIONALE BEHIND THE MERGER?
A combined Zuuse and Progressclaim business represents a much deeper, more compelling value proposition to the market. The technology solutions within the individual businesses complement each other to create stronger standalone solutions and a stronger joint solution.
The marketplace in the AECO (Architecture-Engineering-Construction-Operations) sector is rapidly changing. Managing assets and information is undergoing significant transformation.
Systems and processes are largely paper based and manual. However, the market is extremely fragmented with a myriad of technology offerings providing point solutions, each doing their own thing at a point in time. This results in lost dollars, time, information, resources and materials.
Organisations are looking for better, more innovative ways to manage assets/data across the full lifecycle – design> construct> operate
There is a significant opportunity for consolidation of the fragmented market to create scale and value.
WHAT ARE THE KEY POINTS AROUND THIS TRANSACTION?
