Sogelink Acquires Dutch software company Regeldienst with the support of Keensight Capital
Sogelink, a leading European provider of software solutions for infrastructure, construction, and property management professionals, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Regeldienst, a renowned Dutch software company specializing in software solutions for the public sector. Sogelink, through solutions provided to decentralized Dutch governments under the Geodan brand will form a strategic partnership with Regeldienst.
The partnership will combine the strengths and expertise of both companies for the benefit of local government internet domains, enabling them to deliver comprehensive software platforms which will assist local governments in their preparation for the Environment and Planning Act which the Dutch government is introducing to simplify and merge the rules for spatial development. Sogelink is backed by Keensight,Capital, one of the leading private equity managers dedicated to pan-European Growth Buyout investments.
The Netherlands is an international leader in optimizing the permit application process and Sogelink has the ambition to also apply the knowledge and experience in this domain internationally, especially in markets such as France and the Nordics to optimize the services provided by local authorities, maximising international opportunities for growth. By leveraging their extensive product portfolio and industry knowledge, the combined entity will empower government agencies to enhance their operations and deliver exceptional services to their constituents.
Fatima Berral, CEO of Sogelink, expressed her excitement about the acquisition, saying, “the acquisition of Regeldienst is perfectly in line with our desire to export our expertise to other countries to contribute to improving the digitization and sustainability of the infrastructure and construction environments. It will also enable us to deploy the system of the DSO (Digital System Environmental Act) more broadly and thus raise the level of services provided by local and regional authorities across the board. We look forward to working closely with the Regeldienst teams and sharing our know-how and expertise. As Sogelink continues to grow, our collaboration with Keensight, and the relationship of mutual trust and listening we enjoy, are essential to the Group’s development”.
Both companies are committed to a smooth transition and seamless integration of their operations. Existing clients of both Sogelink and Regeldienst can expect continued support and enhancements to their software solutions, along with access to the combined expertise of the merged entity.
