VertiGIS, a GIS solution provider and software developer, announced the completed acquisition of longstanding development partner KMS Computer GmbH.
KMS is an established and trusted computer-aided facility management (CAFM) software specialist based in Dresden, Germany.
VertiGIS is backed by global, technology-based investment firm Battery Ventures, who began acquiring GIS and location technology-focused companies under the brand in 2017.
Best known for the GEBman software suite, KMS has helped municipal, industry, service, and utility companies with their facility- and document management needs since 1990. Their flexible, end-to-end solutions – based upon the latest web technologies and suitable for in-house or mobile use – integrate access and analysis of factual data, documents, and spatial information for plants, real estate, and capital goods.
For the past 15 years, KMS has worked with VertiGIS to bring ProOffice – a process-oriented software solution with optional GIS connectivity for infrastructure workflows, and built upon GEBman technology – to German, Austrian, and Swiss customers. The integration of KMS into VertiGIS ensures that the strategic planning and development of ProOffice and GEBman continue to be closely coordinated.
