WEMAINTAIN ACQUIRES PROPTECH STARTUP SHOKLY

WeMaintain has acquired French PropTech startup Shokly, a company that specialises in fire alarm maintenance and management.

WeMaintain, which combines technology and technical expertise, launched in order to address the most critical area of building operations: lift maintenance. 

The company’s model gives engineers and those on the ground autonomy and sophisticated technology, so they can work towards creating the best user experience. They also deploy IoT sensors on key equipment. 

With Shokly, fire alarm system maintenance is automated and more reliable, with a module that connects the central unit with the mobile app used by the engineers. At the same time, Shokly has also developed IoT sensors for the day-to-day management of fire alarm systems. This lets customers monitor their equipment, and potential malfunctions, remotely and in real time.

For WeMaintain, this union will result in the implementation of a data lake that is enriched in real time thanks to the additional IoT sensors deployed in buildings and in the field, with data collected via the engineers' mobile applications.

On the customer side, managers and building owners will benefit from information that provides much more detailed knowledge of their buildings, as well as from the optimised service on which WeMaintain has built its reputation.

Benoit Dupont, CEO and Co-founder of WeMaintain, said Shokly was a ‘natural partner’ for WeMaintain. He said: ”Most Proptech players tackle the problem from the wrong side: first they conceive a data platform, before coping with data collection, and finally consider analysis of this data.

”WeMaintain and Shokly have both started from their field expertise in order to identify and collect adequate data, provide a high quality service and enable a broader long term data strategy.

”In fact, Shokly has created technology just like WeMaintain, that is not bound to a specific manufacturer, like traditional industrial players do. We find ourselves with an agnostic technology, easy to deploy and that truly brings value to the client. Just like WeMaintain can deploy its IoT solution on all types of lifts, Shokly can install its solution on all brands and models of fire alarm systems.”
