Gopi Latpate’s ValuD Acquired by JLL for an Undisclosed Amount
Las Vegas resident Gopi Latpate’s ValuD Consulting, a leading provider of IBM software integration and consulting services in the United States and India, is acquired by real estate multinational Jones Lang LaSalle for an undisclosed amount. The transaction significantly enhances JLL’s ability to bring the next generation of technology to its clients through future-focused innovation and deepened expertise in IBM’s TRIRIGA, Maximo and Watson Internet of Things (IoT) services.
The acquisition supports JLL’s commitment to lead the industry and its clients through digital transformation. It will add 300 highly skilled technology experts—many recruited, trained and certified through ValuD’s unique university partnerships—to JLL’s specialized Technology Solutions team around the world. This enhanced expertise will provide clients with market-leading technology systems that enable faster, more informed real estate decisions and improved business performance.
ValuD was founded in 2009 by Las Vegan Gopi Latpate, who has been involved in the IBM TRIRIGA platform and application since its inception. Under Latpate’s leadership as a CEO, ValuD has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States for the last four years in a row.
“By joining JLL, we’re bringing together two growth companies with a common culture,” Latpate said. “We wanted to find the right partner who has the same drive and is serving the same client base—JLL was a perfect match. Combining our talent, tools, and knowledge will drive value for our clients.”
ValuD has successfully completed more than 180 projects, improving real estate, asset and facilities management for companies of all sizes. The dedicated Lease Accounting practice – with 3 CPAs – has implemented more FASB compliance projects than any other firm in the world. With over 240 employees, the company is headquartered in Dallas, TX, with a virtual US team and an office in Aurangabad, India.
