Avobis and UNiQUARE Establish a Joint Venture.

Avobis Group AG and UNiQUARE Software Development GmbH founded a joint venture under the name Avobis Uniquare AG for the distribution of further developed software in Switzerland. This application enables digital processing of the entire mortgage process and takes customer care to a new level. Each of the companies holds 50 percent of the shares.

The establishment of a joint sales company is another step in the development of the successful cooperation between Avobis and UNiQUARE. This will start the distribution of the software optimized for Switzerland. UNiQUARE covers the competence of the software developer, while Avobis contributes the extensive know-how in the administration and processing of mortgages. With this joint approach, customers benefit from the combined expertise and receive excellent technical and business advice. The software product, which has been adapted for the Swiss market, enables the entire mortgage process to be processed digitally and offers extensive CRM functionality. The solution can also be used as a SaaS model. The Swiss Bank Vontobel, started using this modern application this year. Thanks to the good cooperation with Bank Vontobel, a lot of specific requirements for Swiss banks have already been built into the software. “With the digital application of Avobis we are much faster and there are fewer errors in the entire loan processing. We are extremely satisfied with the partnership with Avobis”, explains the Head of Risk Control at Bank Vontobel.

Martin Signer, CEO Avobis Group says: “I am very pleased that together with UNiQUARE we can supply the Swiss market with a jointly developed software. In UNiQUARE we have an outstanding partner and specialist for software development on board. Together with our know-how in the administration and processing of mortgages, our joint venture combines the best of both sides. With this step, we as a company confirm our commitment to our chosen growth strategy in digitization and serve our customers with compelling solutions.”

Vera Led, CEO of UNiQUARE: “With the foundation of the joint company with Avobis, an outstanding customer turns into an excellent partner for us. The unique combination of the technical expertise of Avobis with the know-how in software-based process optimization at UNiQUARE creates considerable added value for the Swiss market in the joint venture. It covers not only the complete package in the mortgage area, but also the entire Customer Relationship Management (CRM). This enables the joint venture’s customers to achieve outstanding results and service quality across all communication channels with just one central partner.”
