SmartPM Secures Investment From Top Construction Leaders

SmartPM Technologies lands significant investment from construction sector giants, Zachry and Nemetschek, enhancing its analytics services.

ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2023 ( – Michael Pink, CEO of SmartPM Technologies, a leading construction-project analytics provider, announced that the company has received significant financial investments from two high-profile companies in the construction sector.

The Nemetschek Group, a pioneer for digital transformation in the Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AEC/O) industries, led the recent investment round. This investment expands the Nemetschek Group’s venture strategy of driving innovation in construction. Pursuant to the transaction, Matt Wheelis, SVP of Strategy for the Build & Construct Division at the Nemetschek Group, will be joining the board of SmartPM.

Nemetschek Group brings a global reach as an investor in SmartPM with their portfolio of companies such as Nevaris, a Germany-based software firm specializing in solutions for construction management and technology, as well as mobile products on the jobsite. Another of the group’s entities with global reach is Bluebeam, a software company developing innovative technology solutions that set the standard for project efficiency and collaboration for AEC professionals.

“SmartPM’s solution is so valuable because, unlike many platforms that often put the attention only on large projects, SmartPM provides a solution that is applicable to projects of any size. This is a solution that addresses many of the core business challenges in the industry,” says Nemetschek’s Wheelis.

Also joining SmartPM’s investment round is Zachry Construction Corporation, an industry-leading, privately owned company rooted in nearly 100 years of experience specializing in the construction or large, technically unique projects around the world. As with the Nemetschek Group, Zachry’s participation in this investment round will help create a powerful network of cross-collaboration and innovation.

“SmartPM offers a simple and user-friendly way to consume schedule data without requiring extensive knowledge of complex scheduling software. Nevertheless, the benefits of SmartPM go beyond just analytics for schedule data. The tool’s capacity to analyze trends in scheduling, project durations, and completion rates can provide valuable insights for the construction industry as a whole, including benchmarking performance against peers. We are thrilled to be a part of this promising technology,” says David Zachry, President and CEO of Zachry Construction Corporation.
