VertiGIS, a leading solution provider and software developer in the field of geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial asset management announced it has acquired ibR Gesellschaft für Geoinformation mbH (ibR).
VertiGIS also announced a new business unit for land management which combines its expertise across the DACH region—comprising Germany, Austria and Switzerland—as well as a Berlin-based Innovation Center for SaaS/cloud development to serve its expanding customer base.
Based in Bonn, ibR specializes in GIS systems for cadaster and surveying. It shares a vision with VertiGIS for the evolution of land management enabled through modern GIS software delivery.
“We feel our existing customers and new ones will benefit greatly from the enhanced capabilities ibR brings us,” said Andy Berry, VertiGIS’s CEO. “With both companies’ decades of experience in the fields of cadaster, surveying and land development, we feel extremely well-positioned to help accelerate additional digital innovation for our customers, and specifically to expand VertiGIS’ industry-specific solutions for land management. This is a cornerstone of our global business.”
“I am delighted that the complementary strengths of both companies are being combined and that we can work together as a team to support municipalities and public authorities in generating added value from their GIS data. In this way, we can help to further accelerate digitalization in Germany,” says Dr. Hans-Gerd Riemer, CEO of ibR.
