PR: 25-year company history of Keßler Solutions

12. October 2022


The roots of Keßler Solutions go back to 1990 , when the surveying and engineering office Keßler (VIK)* was founded in Leipzig on the day of reunification. Five years later, in 1995 , an independent department was spun off with the task of driving forward the research and development of facility management software. This department also deals with new technologies for FM-compliant information and data acquisition.

In April 1997 , the final foundation stone was laid for the now 25-year success story of Keßler Solutions. The following year saw the market launch of the CAFM software FAMOS. FAMOS stands for Facility Management Operating System and is today one of the most established CAFM systems for commercial, technical and infrastructural management processes of all kinds in German-speaking countries. In July 1999, Gebmess®-Data GmbH was founded as a further part of the Keßler Group. This merged with Keßler Solutions in the summer of 2001 .
