YapiRadar’s entrepreneurs Devrim Unal Saygin (CEO) and Arif Burhan Tarhan (CTO) expressed their satisfaction after the successful investment tour.
Devrim Unal Saygin, its founding partner and CEO: “We have reached the number of solution partners over 1800 with nearly 30,000 projects, nearly 45,000 contractors, solution partners and supplier companies. According to TUIK data, the sector has grown by 119% compared to the same period of the previous year, and the digital transformation in the sector is still in its infancy. This shows us how great potential there is for digitalization.
Our aim with the new investment is to go one step beyond data sharing and to take part in the construction product supply process, to increase trust and transparency in the market. In this direction, we will evaluate the investment for business development and technology. I would like to thank my colleagues, investors, customers and business partners who trusted us.”
