JustRelate Group Acquires CPQ Specialist Planware

With the acquisition of Planware, the JustRelate Group strengthens its leading position in the CPQ sector

The JustRelate Group continues to grow: As of today, the Munich software specialist Planware is part of the group. Following the company’s founding in 1989, Planware focused on the development of configuration software for manufacturers of capital goods (B2B). Since then, the company has been providing software solutions to medium-sized and large manufacturers which enable product configuration as well as pricing and quotation generation. Sales staff and customers can use the software to quickly and easily configure even the most complex products. With over 30 years of experience, Planware is one of the most renowned companies for CPQ solutions in Europe. 

CPQ software is a component that complements the JustRelate portfolio, which includes the Scrivito CMS content management system and the PisaSales CRM customer relationship management solution. The addition enables JustRelate to offer an integrated platform to digitalize the entire sales process. 

Planware customers can benefit from powerful CRM and web functionalities within the JustRelate Group. Although the CPQ solution can still be used as a stand-alone software solution, it can also be integrated into a digital experience platform in the future - e.g. for guided selling or more complex CRM requirements. Further developments are already being implemented with the use of modern cloud technologies.

Bernd Völcker, managing partner of the JustRelate Group, says “We are excited to welcome another successful and renowned software provider into our group. Planware’s CPQ software is an ideal addition to our product portfolio. For medium-sized and large companies that manufacture capital goods, product configuration as well as pricing and quote generation are among the biggest and most complex challenges. Thanks to Planware, we can offer our customers software that completes these tasks reliably, quickly and economically. Additionally, with the new location in Munich, we strengthen our presence in southern Germany”.

Josef Huber, Planware’s managing director, adds “JustRelate and Planware share the same DNA. With in-depth industry expertise and decades of experience, we can help companies master digital transformation. As part of the JustRelate Group, Planware can now also offer customers proven solutions for digitalization. As the company grows, the opportunities and product range will expand tremendously”.
