Unlike most other major industries, the construction industry has traditionally been a sluggish mover on the path to digitalization. When smartphones and tablets became popular on construction sites, the situation changed —today, the hardware is available, and employees in the field can employ digital tools. Despite all of the advancements that have occurred over the last decade, the construction industry continues to rely on pen and paper procedures for a range of administrative and documentation operations, which are regrettably prone to human error, resulting in siloed data and construction delays. To better manage building projects, many businesses today are investing in digital construction management systems. However, the relatively few digital solution suppliers on the market focus on use cases such as labor time monitoring or defect management rather than providing a comprehensive operating system for the construction management. Evidently, there is a need for a unified solution to help improve efficiency in the construction sector. This is where Munich-based Capmo steps in to make a difference in the everyday operations of thousands of construction managers.
Founded in 2018, Capmo is on a mission to help bring about digital transformation in the construction industry by providing an all-in-one construction management software that helps construction and real estate professionals to execute projects in a timely and cost-effective manner. The startup offers cloud-based SaaS solutions that function as a building site operating system. Convinced that innovative construction must adapt to the digital transformation era, the dynamic Capmo team has developed an intuitive, holistic solution that streamlines every aspect of the construction project.
In greater depth, its software enables the digitization, central control, and coordination of all stakeholders throughout all construction phases.
Essentially, Capmo software provides a dashboard that allows clients to keep track of the status of all construction projects on a single platform. The dashboard also enables construction managers to assign individual roles with distinct rights to partners, making communication easier. In addition, the program allows users to produce digital documents as well as legally valid reports and records in only a few clicks. Capmo’s Construction journal function allows it to automatically enter recurring information, control faults in digital construction plans, and assign tasks so that everyone is aware of what has to be done. Another noteworthy feature of this software is automatic synchronization, which ensures that all information captured on the building site is immediately available in the office.
Capmo places a high value on customer service. To that end, the company is always available to assist clients in getting started with their product at no extra cost. In addition, the company offers a secure data storage facility where customer data is solely housed on ISO 27001 certified servers in Germany. Along with all of these services, what truly distinguishes the Capmo software is its ease of use, which makes work easier and does not need any strenuous training.

Today, Capmo has positioned itself as Europe’s leading operating system for construction sites, and its AI-based software is being used for construction documentation, defect management, and job management. Hundreds of major and small building projects, including the Hilton Munich Hotel, the remodeling of the Oberpollinger department store, and a variety of public construction projects, have already employed the company’s solutions successfully. Additionally, Capmo also has a number of well-known customers in Germany, including Düsseldorf Airport, Frankfurt Grand Tower (Germany’s highest residential skyscraper), and the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
With the tremendous success of over 10,000 projects built on Capmo in the construction tech industry, the company is on track to make every facet of construction easier and more efficient. Looking ahead, the company has already begun its journey toward providing clients with revolutionary integrations that will allow them to connect Capmo to existing programs and manage the entire construction project centrally.
