Founded by Paul Indinger and Leopold Neuerburg in 2015, Munich-based Building Radar is powered by its market-leading Revenue Engineering core. Building Radar enables sales teams that sell solutions to discover and close their untapped revenue potential. Most companies in industry and construction are nowhere near reaching their full revenue potential. They generate most of their revenue through reactive sales methods such as trade shows, leads from their personal relationships or by waiting for tenders and direct approaches.

But the industry is changing. 

Companies that have been selling door closers for decades have transformed into suppliers of entry solutions, modular construction firms are replacing on-site installers, and more and more players from Asia or companies like Amazon are pushing into the European construction market. Therefore, traditional sales methods alone are not enough Through our work with hundreds of companies in this space, we have built a Revenue Engineering solution. Combining AI data insights, process excellence and talent development, Building Radar uncovers your untapped revenue potential and helps you to capture it by building a scalable and measurable sales pipeline.

Having already helped businesses like Schüco, Viessmann or Siemens close over €2 billion in untapped revenue, Building Radar has raised a total of $5.5 million in funding over six rounds fuelling its Revenue Engineering and Sales Execution Solution to scale clients’ Revenue Pipeline.
