Visma acquires the majority stake of Keez, a fast-growing provider of accounting and invoicing for small businesses in Romania. The move supports Visma’s strategic expansion in Central Europe.
Founded in 2018, Keez has had solid growth over the past three years. Keez offers a solution covering the entire accounting process by integrating professional accounting services on top of their product. In addition, their product uses machine learning for improved efficiency, giving their customers a competitive advantage.
“We are pleased to join forces with such a strong international player like Visma. With their experience and network of competence, we will be able to focus on our continued development and delivering value to our customers,” said Daniel Mateescu, Founder and Managing Director at Keez.
