Convaron - Your partner for the digitization of your property portfolio

Berlin-based PropTech startup for real estate digitization since 2015

We are a provider and consultant in the field of real estate digitization. Using deep learning image recognition algorithms, we provide a digital platform that collects all available data of your property and creates easier processes based on that information.

 

Founded in 2015 as VRnow in Berlin (2019 launch of the Convaron brand) and now with over 30 employees, we aim to make working with floor plans and building plans more efficient and transparent. And we want to facilitate your work with the help of digital asset management.

The story of the Berlin PropTech Start-up

From VRnow to Convaron - how it all began

„Screw it, let’s do it!“ - Richard Branson

The origin of great products lies in both a simple and a brilliant idea. "Which new technologies can optimize processes in established markets such as the real estate industry" was the key question that Alexander Dolokov (now CTO) and Tim Meger-Guingamp (now CEO) asked themselves during a relaxed Friday evening in a Berlin bar. A solution for the still quite analogous real estate industry was needed. Dolokov developed an image recognition algorithm that reads out floor plans of houses and analyses them: How large are the residential units, how many doors and windows are there and what types of rooms are there? These data are used to create a digital image of the apartment, which can be used both in sales processes and in the day-to-day management of real estate.
The idea seemed very promising and was put into practice. This is how the PropTech start-up VRnow was founded.

The focus was therefore placed on data analysis and the founders adapted their business model - this is how Convaron was born. The name derives from a word creation of the technology name "Convolutional Neural Network", on which the previous algorithms of the company are based. "Our Convolutional Neural Network, the kind of artificial intelligence we work with, specializes in images. It consists of many layers and each layer has several filters. These filters read images and recognize patterns. In real estate, for example, these are doors or windows," explains Dolokov, now CTO at Convaron. It would be extremely time-consuming and error-prone to have people read and process this information.

It would be extremely time-consuming and error-prone to have people read and process this information.

Reading out the plans makes it possible to give exact details and thus also to calculate the costs accurately: "Our customers can save up to 13 percent of the planned costs in the event of modernization", says Tim-Meger-Guingamp, "this not only leads to improved cost efficiency but for the first time our offer provides an overview of the actual inventory".
