Spica parent company Nordomatic, the leading BMS system integrator in Scandinavia, UK and Benelux, today announced the acquisition of the remaining 40% of the shares in Altacogni AB. Altacogni is a high-tech start-up created by a seasoned development team based in Stockholm and with customers across the world. The Altacogni team has developed a comprehensive Internet of Things (”IoT”) software and hardware platform for Smart Buildings under the brand Yanzi Networks.
Spica is to integrate the Altacogni AB team and Yanzi products into its Spica SmartCloud division with immediate effect, meaning customers looking for workplace experience software can find more options and choice from the same award-winning provider. Spica’s range of products for the smart buildings continues to grow alongside original product GemEx Engine with the addition of Yanzi products, energy-saving HVAC optimisation software Ecopilot and remote BMS monitoring platform Styrportalen.
The investment allows Nordomatic to continue to innovate on Altacogni’s leading Smart Buildings IoT Software Platform and sensor infrastructure. With immediate effect, the Altacogni team and products now fall under the Spica SmartCloud division of Nordomatic. As the PropTech software engine of Nordomatic, Spica deliver smart, healthy building technology and optimised facilities experiences, empowering business leaders and landlords to achieve operational excellence, sustainability goals and creating aspirational spaces that employees want to work and thrive in.
The Altacogni cloud-based services and products are cutting edge when it comes to ease of implementation and security, and help to increase indoor air quality, optimise space utilisation, enhance productivity, and save energy. Spica, Nordomatic and Altacogni are excited to move cloud-based and service oriented Smart Building Solutions to the next level.
”This is a very exciting partnership and I expect really cool things to come that will benefit our customers and further position Nordomatic as a true pioneer within the Smart Buildings space. The Yanzi platform, its business applications and incredible development team are absolutely world class and I look forward to surprising the market with innovation at a whole new level in years to come,” says Tim Streather, Managing Director of Spica, the Smart Cloud Division of the Nordomatic Group.
”We have set a clear ambition of changing the way property owners operate their buildings, creating new experiences and values for their tenants. Proptech and Smart Buildings are what we breathe, and we drive the latest technological advances into a big market that is now starting to move and wants to innovate and invest. Nordomatic is a great partner providing market opportunities and operational stability and support, and together we will gain a leadership position with real impact,” says Mattias Danielsson, CEO of Altacogni.
“I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Altacogni team from the Nordomatic Group. Already, you have been working closely both with Nordomatic and Spica to deliver on a high customer promise, and I believe that full integration will add commitment and efficiency in the way we work together. Only together can we release the full potential of the exciting value propositions within BMS, Energy and Workplace, addressing the important sustainability challenges ahead of us,” says Olov Schagerlund, CEO of Nordomatic Group.
