Software-as-a-Service company CMap has acquired document management software company Atvero.

Cheshire-based CMap received multi-million-pound funding from NorthEdge Capital in 2020 to support the firm’s growing team and global expansion plans.

Dave Graham, CEO of CMap, said: “Bringing Atvero into the CMap family enables us to offer architects, engineers and construction firms a unique proposition – the industry’s first cloud-based, best-of-breed project, document and email management solution.

“Our combined offering helps free our clients from the day-to-day complexities of running their companies and lets them focus on what they love: delivering outstanding projects.”

Marcus Roberts, director and co-Ffounder of Atvero, will lead the Atvero business unit within CMap.  He said: “We’ve seen huge demand for Atvero as more and more companies have embraced the cloud, and Microsoft SharePoint and Teams.

“CMap are a clear leader in the AEC industry, and by joining forces we have the perfect partner to help further accelerate the development and adoption of Atvero.”

Multi-million-pound investment for CMAP

Atvero streamlines document control, enabling its clients to improve quality, decrease risk and save time.

Atvero’s cloud-based project information management software spans document management in SharePoint, email management from Outlook, secure transmittals of project information, and integrations with leading CAD tools and CDEs.

Leveraging Microsoft 365 project information can be accessed from any location and device, whilst clients retain complete ownership of their data within their SharePoint tenancies.

Together, CMap and Atvero serve nearly 500 customers globally, and help them deliver over 100,000 projects annually.

An integration between the two products is being released imminently, but each product will maintain its own independent roadmap and development team.
