Main Capital has acquired a majority stake in the fast-growing GIS and Field Service Management specialist GOconnectIT from Nieuwegein. The company supplies leading and innovative SaaS solutions for the underground cable and pipeline industry, supporting customers in optimizing their administrative processes.

GOconnectIT was founded in 2001 and has positioned itself over the years as the most specialized software supplier for the cable and pipeline industry.

This knowledge is used to further develop and improve the innovative products, so that the company is able to deliver products that really suit the needs of customers in the sector. The customer base includes large corporates such as Stedin, Heijmans and BAM and (semi) governments such as Rijkswaterstaat and provinces.

GOconnectIT has developed a variety of solutions that help unburden clients in the administrative area of infrastructure projects. The company’s innovative web-based solutions facilitate paperless work, both in the field and in the office. In addition, the company facilitates an improved guarantee of data and information, which demonstrably leads to a reduction in excavation damage and associated costs. Thanks to the unique position of the company in the cable and pipeline segment, GOconnectIT fulfills an important role in the data and information exchange between the various parties working together on complex infrastructure projects.

Main Capital will actively support GOconnectIT in expanding its current growth, internationalization and strengthening of the organization. The focus will be on expanding the product and services portfolio by providing innovative scalable solutions, as well as doing targeted acquisitions. The company will use the position of the Netherlands as a pioneer in the digitization of the cable and pipeline market to enter other European markets, including Belgium and the United Kingdom.
