Our Mission and Values

We provide data-driven solutions for a reliable, efficient and more secure building management.

metr revolutionises the way buildings will be managed and maintained in the future: efficient, user-friendly, easy to handle, networked and data-driven. We integrate different solutions into one central system, enabling our customers to be more flexible by working across manufacturers and exploiting synergies. We involve the user in the product development process from the very beginning.

We make real estate fit for the future and connect building technology. This eliminates typically costly on-site technical diagnoses and those responsible for maintenance can use their knowledge to make the right decisions quickly, minimizing downtime and informing tenants in a timely manner.

Customer Orientation: We act in a customer-oriented manner by knowing the needs, expectations and wishes of our customers and incorporating these into product development.

Collaboration: We achieve our goals together by supporting each other and by knowing and using the personal strengths of each individual.

Open Mindedness: We treat other cultures, religions, opinions and problems with respect and reamin open to creative and novel solutions and ideas.

Sustainability: We feel obliged to act in an environmentally and socially responsible manner because we are responsible for future generations.

The metr values are composed of customer orientation, collaboration, open mindedness and sustainability.
