The acquisition will allow real estate customers to streamline their activities across the realty sales chain.

“Codegarden simplifies and digitises processes for real estate agents and their partners with the market's preferred system and a broad understanding of real estate. Their solutions fit perfectly with Visma's product portfolio for automating the real estate industry,” says Managing Director of Visma Software, Erlend Sogn.

Codegarden’s key product Meglerapp is a complete and customizable tool for real estate offices to support the field work of their agents. The solution includes regulatory requirements such as electronic signature, valuations, and signing of contracts.

“We believe that the digitalisation of real estate will accelerate in synergy with Visma, and that development and innovation in Codegarden will improve as part of Visma's real estate solutions ecosystem,” says Bård Teigland, CEO of Codegarden.

Founded in 2009, Codegarden’s vision has been to simplify and streamline the flow of information for brokers through innovation and the use of mobile platforms. Codegarden's solutions have become the professional community's preferred system for agents in the field.

“This will provide new and existing customers with improved and complete solutions and opportunities. Digital solutions have become increasingly important due to demand for automation, integration, security and accessibility. Visma’s vision of streamlining our customers' daily tasks is strongly supported by this acquisition,” says Sogn.
