Market position and competitors

Symetri already enjoyed strong positioning in the Nordics, UK and Ireland. After the June 2023 acquisition of Team D3, Symetri became one of Autodesk’s largest global partners. Symetri has over 1,000 employees, 25,000 customers and 400,000 daily users. Symetri’s competitors are mainly global software companies like Dassault Systèmes, Nemetscheck and Siemens, as well as other Autodesk partners like GRATIEC, Mensch und Maschine and Rand Worldwide. Its proprietary software and related services, combined with a skilled and experienced organisation with global reach, are key competitive advantages.

SWG has a leading market position in digital FM solutions for the Swedish and UK real estate sectors, and customers in Australia, Canada and the Middle East. SWG has especially strong positioning in FM solutions for Public-Private-Partnerships.

Tribia has strong positioning in Sweden and Norway on the market for digital project collaborative solutions for the AEC sector.

SWG and Tribia mainly encounter local competition, but competition is also sourced from multinational companies like IBM, Planon and Trimble.
