Croatian Platform Aims to Allow Construction Company Networking

As Mladen Miletic/Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Croatian construction sector has recently been richer for the introduction of the specialised Croatian platform, which was conceived as a database of information, contacts and other valuable and relevant content for all kinds of companies working within the construction sector.

The main goal of the Croatian platform is to network and connect domestic construction companies, help them find adequate and verified partners and subcontractors, speed up and simplify many of the administrative and other processes, and thus contribute to the stronger development of the construction industry across the Republic of Croatia.

Behind the idea of this innovative and helpful new platform is a team led by Maja Borovina Frankic, an economist with extensive experience in the construction sector through involvement in the family business, Spegra, which is otherwise a leader in the niche of rehabilitation works.

The Croatian platform was created as a response to long-standing problems that the domestic construction sector has been and still is continuously struggling with, and which have been particularly emphasised over the last few years – a lack of skilled labour, unsystematic data, the unavailability of information, weak B2B cooperation, the disproportion of supply and demand with regard to geographical location(s), and significant lagging behind digital trends that are the norm elsewhere in Europe and the world.

“The idea is almost ten years old now, it has been being intensively developed for the last four of those years, and at the beginning of 2023 it finally saw the light of day. It was conceived as an exclusive, digital ecosystem of the entire market, where both private and public investors, companies regardless of their size and activity, independent experts, various institutions and the like can all find their place, and what they have in common is their participation in the construction market. By increasing cooperation between these companies, we can reduce and eliminate the difficulties we all face together,” explained Maja Borovina Frankic.

In just over two months since its launch, the Croatian platform already has more than 500 registered companies, and in the future it will also have the option of reviewing those companies. They will act as an information platform, for example, for announcing new materials that have arrived on the Croatian market and new trends taking place on foreign markets.

“The feedback we’ve been getting has been very good. By developing the platform and registering an increasing number of market stakeholders, the users of the platform enables easily accessible and systematic data, the easier finding of business entities, the realisation of B2B cooperation, job advertisements and marketing,” concluded Maja Borovina Frankic.
