Amersfoort – Software provider Leviy merges with the German zvoove group and combines forces for further internationalization of its own application. The innovative software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, made for companies in cleaning and facility management sectors, enables communication, quality management, planning, analysis and reporting of room status, working hours and cleaning activities in real time thanks to its mobile app. Together with their 20 employees, the founders Sebastiaan van der Vinne and Bart van Velden will join the German market leader and work on further development and new software generations together.
Expanding the market leadership
Marc Linkert, who is leading the zvoove group together with Denny Hölscher, Christian Mieth and Sascha Alber, sees the merger as “a logical step in order to expand the market leadership in the target industries.” At the same time, as the manager states, clients can look forward to a large number of new features in zvoove’s product range.
Leviy CEO Sebastiaan van der Vinne co-founded the company in 2014 and will now be responsible for the international business at zvoove. Sebastiaan and Bart developed a solution that is not only used intensively by facility management companies, but also by companies in the hotel, leisure and logistics industry as well as the health sector. Sebastiaan van der Vinne: “The merger with zvoove offers us exciting new possibilities to develop our software. Our shared philosophy as well as the high degree of innovation in our products are an outstanding base to build on in the future. I am sure that we will cause even more furor in the industry very soon.”
