Aareon takes over Square DMS Group B.V. in the Netherlands

With the acquisition, Aareon is expanding its leading position in Europe. Square DMS Group B.V. is an expanding provider of case management solutions for the property sector in the Netherlands.

Mainz/Emmen/Grathem, 15 October 2015 – Aareon Nederland B.V., the Dutch subsidiary of Aareon AG (Europe’s leading consultancy and systems house for the property sector), has taken over Square DMS Group B.V., Grathem, in its entirety with effect from 1 October 2015.

Square DMS Group B.V. offers case management solutions (ShareWorX®) in the Netherlands and Belgium to the housing industry in the main.
