ProVI GmbH

We develop and market a highly intuitive and easy-to-learn software system for traffic and infrastructure planning. ProVI has for many years been among the leading route design systems used in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In 2018, the company was spun off from globally successful planning firm OBERMEYER to create an independent organization within the Group capable of meeting client requirements even more effectively – not only by enhancing and refining the software, but also in the areas of service and support.

ProVI Is Small, Agile and Highly Responsive

This allows us to respond quickly to new requirements, rules, regulations and technological innovations in a highly dynamic IT landscape. We are also always looking to the future and already developing innovative solutions for the design projects of tomorrow.

ProVI Has Highly Capable Partners

As a standalone subsidiary of the OBERMEYER Group, we can draw upon the expertise of one of Germany’s biggest planning firms. This creates valuable synergies because we develop our software based on practical, real-life requirements. This also enables us to better understand your needs and so provide you with expert and comprehensive support.
We collaborate with numerous universities on research projects and have also entered into partnerships with international construction companies such as STRABAG AG and Julius Berger International GmbH with the aim of optimizing digital data transfer processes. No other developer of route design software can offer this level of practical orientation.
