HTGF and Bayern Kapital invest in online property management platform
March 26, 2018
casavi has successfully raised a seven-figure sum in an additional financing round. The Munich-based company is seeking to further advance the digitalisation of property management with its cloud-based platform. Seed investors Bayern Kapital and High-Tech Gründerfonds once again invested in the company. The financing round also saw investment from WenVest GmbH and a family office active in the property industry from the BayStartUP network. casavi is aiming to use the fresh capital to build on its innovative edge and expand its market leadership in German-speaking regions.
casavi was founded in Munich in 2015. The casavi online platform serves as a digital link between all parties active in the property sector – from administration to owners, tenants and service providers. The software-as-a-service solution enables housing companies and administrative bodies to get in contact with residents in a more efficient and cost-effective manner, with a greater focus on the requirements of customers. For example, tenants and property owners have the possibility of accessing up-to-date information, services and documents at any time and in a transparent fashion. Since market launch, the product has gained more than 200 clients from German-speaking regions, who manage over 600,000 housing units in total.
“Our aim is to significantly increase the level of automation in property management, thus improving both the efficiency in administration and the satisfaction of tenants and owners,” explains Peter Schindlmeier, CEO of casavi, in summary of the company’s plans. The company will therefore look to use artificial intelligence in future, which to date has found little application in the administration of properties.
“casavi has developed into one of the leading proptech businesses over the last two years and has become an integral component of the company processes of many property management firms. With our renewed investment, we aim to support casavi in solidifying its role as a digitalisation partner in the property industry,” says Roman Huber, Managing Director at Bayern Kapital. “We see huge potential for digitalisation and automation in the property sector. casavi is on the right track to unlocking this potential, which is why we are convinced the company will establish itself in the long term on the market following a highly successful market entry,” adds Kristin Müller, Investment Manager at High-Tech Gründerfonds.
casavi is a Munich-based company founded in 2015 which offers a communications and productivity platform for digitalised property management. The company not only enables housing firms and administrative bodies to simplify their communications and service processes, but to also make them more efficient and customer-friendly. The range of functions of a digital process management system is also supported by a German property law and tenant service app as well as interfaces with existing accounting software and service provider portals.
