RIB Software SE expands its stake in DATENGUT GmbH, one of the leading German providers of mobile solutions for the construction industry, to 75%
Stuttgart, Germany, 18 April 2019. RIB Software SE, the world’s leading provider of iTWO 4.0 Cloud Enterprise Platform Technology, today announced the increase of its stake in Datengut GmbH from 51% to 75%. The purchase price was partly paid in treasury shares and cash.
Michael Sauer, Executive Board Member of RIB Group: “On the basis of the very successful business development of Datengut and the extremely positive reactions of our customers to the extended product portfolio in the Mobility segment, we have decided to expand our participation from last year. Together with the specialists from Datengut, we will continue to concentrate on setting up a competence center for mobility within the DACH region.”
“By integrating mobile data applications of Datengut with the iTWO platform, we are creating a solution that on the one hand provides all project-relevant data in a single application on site and on the other hand represents a modern and customer-oriented extension of the iTWO enterprise solution. We are looking forward to extending the productive collaboration with RIB's team in this expanding area”, says Michael Woitag, Managing Director of Datengut GmbH.
Datengut designs, develops and distributes unique software solutions, enabling a completely new way of working for clients in a variety of industries, with a focus on mid-sized and large construction companies. With the Datengut software kit, data from existing data sources (such as Financial Accounting, ERP, e-mail, CRM, DMS, ...) are taken over and combined in a single web application. The result is a command center with comprehensive options for viewing, controlling and managing operational processes. All relevant data can be accessed and processed on the go, even offline via the App. Important processes and procedures that are linked to the information (capture, check, release, evaluation, planning, etc.) are automated, optimized and standardized. In 2012, a small team around the Managing Director and idea generator - Michael Woitag - spun off from another software company. Nearly 50 highly motivated and qualified employees work in the areas of development, programming, project implementation, sales and marketing at the location in Zwenkau (district of Leipzig).
