Revolutionising, disrupting, thinking outside the box, transforming... These are not simple buzzwords for us – these underline our philosophy. Our mission is to drive digitalisation in the construction sector forwards – and to do so intelligently, along the entire value-added chain. Our goal is nothing less than to revolutionise the construction industry.
All of our efforts focus around increasing productivity. To this end, our solutions are designed to help customers use resources sustainably, identify the optimum time for every step and to plan the use of man-power smartly. To achieve this, we need two key elements; transparency and solutions. We want to increase transparency in the construction process with the use of digitalisation. This is why we are developing innovative solutions, that can measure parameters such as progress, quality, time and costs.
We can only achieve this goal by pooling knowledge from different domains. This is the concept behind the CONTAKT GmbH team, which is made up of construction management experts, tender managers, construction project and manufacturing specialists, as well as gurus from the fields of sensor technology and artificial intelligence. We also work with industrial partners and software developers who bring their own expertise on board. Together, we are working towards our mission with one overriding goal: change.
However, everyone on a construction site has a vital role to play if we are to bring about change. Project managers, foremen, sub-contractors and builders all have to work as one and be ready to break away from the beaten track. Think differently. Think innovatively. That’s the only way to start a revolution! And that's the only way to achieve something new, something more sustainable, and something smarter.
CONTAKT GmbH was founded on 1 January 2019 and is headquartered in Amstetten, Austria. The company was established independently as part of Umdasch Group Ventures GmbH, an innovation hub and ‘company creator’ specialising in the construction and retail sectors. Umdasch Group Ventures GmbH is a subsidiary of the Umdasch Group with almost 8,800 employees around the world and has over 160 sales and logistics offices in more than 70 different countries.
Just one year after the company was founded, CONTAKT GmbH won the German Innovation Award for Connectivity. The solution’s added value has successfully proved its worth in lead projects by strategic customers. Meanwhile, CONTAKT has been invited to spread the word about their innovative concepts at trade congresses such as the German Lean Construction Conference 2020, the Austrian SolidBIM-Konferenz and the Autodesk University in Las Vegas.
