View Software Acquires MainManager

Why selling MainManager?

At MainManager, we have always had ambitions to distribute the solution to the whole world. After 30 years in the Nordic region, we have learned that it requires in-depth market understanding and capital to gain a foothold in new markets. The owners of MainManager see the transfer as an important part of being able to realize the company’s full potential. We believe that View Software can meet this long-term strategic challenge. View works professionally with sales. Customer Success and User Experience Design are among the company’s core competencies. We have no doubt that it will benefit our current and new customers.

Will the sale lead to any major changes?

The founders of MainManager, Gunnlaugur B. Hjartarson and Gudmundur Ludvigsson, will remain in the company. They will become investors in View Software in connection with the transfer. All other employees remain in the company after the takeover. Our Icelandic team continues to work tirelessly from Reykjavik, and daily tasks will still be solved from our offices in Oslo and Copenhagen. MainManager’s brand and interface, lives on. We look forward to welcoming you and a lot of new users to View MainManager.

SKI 02.19 Cloud – KMD Opus MainManager got listed

In late 2018 we started the initial talks about developing a joint ERP and FM-solution to municipalities with KMD in Denmark. We shared a mutual understanding of the market, and the need for a KMD Opus MainManager was recognized by both parties. Our Proof of Concept was the joint application to participate in the Facility Management software tender process in Aarhus.

In July 2019 we were proud to announce that KDM Opus MainManager had won the competition in Aarhus. The second largest municipality in Denmark – and the 15thmunicipality in the Nordic market using MainManager.

SKI 02.19 Cloud

Now we are taking our cooperation to the next level, having our Facility Management software offer accepted by SKI.

SKI negotiates contract terms for public organizations, so neither the national, regional or local ones, need to invest resources in the long and often complicated process involved in carrying out a tender. As of august 31st KMD Opus MainManager is approved for contracting public institutions directly through the SKI 02.19 agreement covering cloud applications.

OUR JOINT EFFORT HAS PAID OFF

The first two important milestones – Aarhus and SKI 02.19 – have been reached. This fall, sales and marketing at KMD will go to market, launching KMD Opus MainManager to all municipalities in Denmark.
