Compodium, provider of secure digital meeting spaces, launches new channel program to drive EMEA growth

Appoints Hubert Da Costa as Vice President, Global Channels

London, July 22nd, 2020 – Compodium International AB, the leading provider of secure digital meeting spaces, has unveiled a new channel program, Compodium Partner Assure, aimed at accelerating the company’s growth into western Europe. Already a well-established and trusted brand in its native Nordics, the company plans to expand its geographic footprint to include the UK initially, followed by other countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Hubert Da Costa, has been appointed as Vice President, Global Channels to build, launch and lead the channel program in EMEA. Da Costa brings to Compodium decades of experience building European businesses for firms including Cybera, Cradlepoint, NCR Corporation, Juniper Networks and Avaya.

The market for digital meeting spaces has exploded in recent weeks, with the video conferencing market alone predicted to reach a valuation of $50bn by 2026. Compodium’s Secure Video Meeting Service delivers secure and reliable video meetings. Its robust and secure production platform ensures the picture and audio quality in the video meetings are of the highest quality and the encryption algorithm on each call makes it impossible for the call to be intercepted.

To help secure a market-leading position in this rapid growth area, Compodium is looking to appoint a select number of partners across the region to drive sales in the finance, healthcare, SMB enterprise, education and government / public sector vertical markets. Although a number of its early deals were secured via a direct sales approach, going forward the company’s model will be 100 percent channel focused.

Mr Da Costa said: “For many businesses, recent events have fundamentally changed the way they operate. Home working has taken off in a way that we could never have imagined, and thanks to technology we’re as productive in our own homes, as we are in a traditional office environment. There’s no question as to the significance that video conferencing has played here. However, when it comes to protecting sensitive, confidential and valuable data, enterprise-grade security is a must. Catching up with friends on HouseParty is one thing – but discussing a medical diagnosis with your GP, or exploring a potential M&A requires absolute confidentiality. Compodium is uniquely positioned in the market to address this confidentiality requirement by delivering authenticated video meetings and fully encrypted solutions.”

Trusted Digital Conversations – Vitally Important in Critical Times, by Hydro66

Compodium is a Swedish software company delivering trusted digital conversations for regulated industries with a focus on confidentiality. They deliver video conferencing, digital and online meetings and connected events all over the world.

They have solutions for digitally broadcasting all types of events whilst allowing client flexibility to use the video calling platform of their choice. Meetings can be quickly scaled up – whether it be meetings with the highest security class, general meetings, disaster response or different types of video conferencing with any number of participants. Even including interpreters from different countries.

A secondary benefit is a tangible measurable reduction in the environmental impact of travel.

Major customers are Swedish health care providers, local and national governments, and law firms, requiring authentication and encryption in their conversations.

We spent some time with Bengt Grahn, Compodium CEO, to discuss how trusted digital conversations are helping build a better future.

Tell us a little about your philosophy on how digital conversations can help organisations address the huge implications of climate change and COVID-19?

Over the last few years we have seen that the Internet offered an unparalleled opportunity for easy, cost-efficient, and secure video communications. Our clients are forward-thinking and we’ve had a lot of success with helping people replace in-person meetings. Not just for efficiency reasons but also as a green alternative.

The COVID-19 situation has acted as a huge stress test on our social fabric. Not only social care systems, but also from public transport through to the local coffee shop meet-up. Moreover, all the popular video calling platforms have their limitations. Compodium offers specialised services for regulated industries that have confidential meetings online. And they are unique in this area.

“Now in a change of pace, the COVID-19 pandemic has exploded the market for video meetings.”

Whole continents have closed down and people just cannot physically meet anymore. Bandwidth is available, software is available, consumer grade HD video hardware is available. The timing is perfect to empower fundamental behaviour change for everyone.

With the new sudden stress on established ways of working, why are organisations considering secure platforms like Compodium?

Obviously established use cases such as telemedicine are expanding dramatically in a contagious environment. However, video-based corporate board meetings and shareholder meetings are highly confidential and have to be secure. Users have to be sure who they are talking to. Thirdly, there are use cases with small audience numbers. For example, HR teams need to communicate delicate information to team members.

“So we are seeing many new companies and new use cases looking to make video content available in real time as part of a chain of verifiable trust.”

Once the COVID-19 situation has stabilised, how will we change the way we do business?

Clearly we are in a situation which has turned health care, economics and everyday lives upside down. Will this be what really changes our behaviour,  and changes the very future of our planet,  is a very interesting question. Large international conferences are cancelled at short notice and organisations all over the world are drastically reducing their travel. The genie is out the bottle when it comes to value perceptions of large amounts of time spent on travel and office-based work hours.

Many people will want to keep their new freedom when the immediate situation becomes less extreme. We will realise that it’s much easier and more practical to keep customer relations with digital tools such as video calls.  Digital platforms will be expanded to match the freedom that individuals now demand – and will want to have in the future. You want to be trusted to work from home, don’t you? You want to choose “essential business travel” to mean exactly that, but without compromise on human interaction and social contact.

“If you are a knowledge worker now, why would you commute to a different place just to do the same work?”

“Why should you live in a big city where life is more complicated and it is 45 minutes to anything?”

“We think this will be an injection into a new green wave of people-led change and will come to be seen as a major inflection point in how society operates.”

Finally, in the current situation, is there anything Hydro66 can do to improve its services to Compodium?

Hydro66 has proven to be a great partner for us over the last few years – they are consistently providing a highly secure specialised environment for us to deliver a global video service to the largest health care and social organisations. Our highest compliment to them is that they continue to anticipate what we need and how to enhance our services. Hydro66 is one link in the chain of trust that deliver secure and trusted conversations to our customers.

Digitala möten ökar – videokonferenser ersätter resor

Stora internationella konferenser ställs in med kort varsel och organisationer över hela världen drar drastiskt ner på sitt resande. Den akuta orsaken är spridningen av Coronaviruset, men även klimatfrågan och den ekonomiska oron påverkar. Det gör att behovet av digitala möten har ökat lika snabbt och drastiskt.

Behovet är enormt och kommer bara att växa, säger Bengt Grahn, vd för Compodium, ett svenskt företag som ordnar digitala möten och videokonferenser till kunder över hela världen. Vi levererar tusentals timmar varje dag och efterfrågan bara ökar.

Det handlar om allt från konferenser och affärsmöten till vanliga arbetsmöten där personal i karantän jobbar hemifrån eller undervisning på distans när skolor och universitet stänger för att minska smittspridningen. Bland Compodiums kunder finns FN-organ där behov och möten måste lösas trots restriktioner för resor.

– Vi fick nyss en förfrågan från ett FN-organ i Rom där medarbetare är i karantän och internationella mötesdeltagare inte kan resa in i landet. De behöver därför hålla videkonferenser med tolkar. Tidigare har alla varit på plats i samma möteslokal, men nu måste tolkarna medverka på distans och det kan Compodium också leverera. Den typen av globala möten kommer att öka, inte minst inom EU-administrationen i Bryssel. Möten ska inte ställas in, vi lever i en tid när vi behöver mötas allt mer, reserestriktioner får inte bli mötesrestriktioner.

Ökade restriktioner innebär att arrangemang som samlar många människor ställs in. Idrottsevenemang hålls inför tomma läktare och tv-sänds till publiken och nu tar andra efter; konserter, teaterföreställningar, gudstjänster och bröllop. I Storbritannien planerar man t.ex. att videosända begravningar.

– Vi har lösningar för att sända alla typer av evenemang över internet, berättar Bengt Grahn. Våra tjänster går att anpassa till de behov som är för stunden och kan snabbt skalas upp, oavsett om det gäller möten med högsta säkerhetsklass, bolagsstämmor, insatser vid katastrofer eller olika typer av videokonferenser med ett stort antal deltagare och tolkar från olika länder.

– Compodium har jobbat med digitala möten och videkonferenser i över 20 år. Vår historia inom telemedicin har gjort att vi har en väl beprövad teknisk plattform som tillgodoser alla behov av säkerhet och autentisering som organisationer efterfrågar och det är vi fortfarande relativt ensamma om på marknaden.

Compodium at the head of Swedish venture to increase trade with the UN

Bengt Grahn, CEO of Compodium, together with Business Sweden are at the Swedish Embassy in Rome to meet with the UN and other international organisations with the goal to increase Swedish trade with the UN. Compodium International AB has been selected as one of six Swedish companies who can assist international- and government organisations in their work towards a more sustainable future.

Compodium are a provider of vendor-agnostic, encrypted and authenticated video meetings who during 2019 secured a Product- and Service Long-Term Agreement with one of the largest humanitarian organisations in the world; the United Nations World Food Programme. Due to this, Compodium was invited to participate in a delegation with Business Sweden to Rome to meet with the UN and other international organisations who can benefit from Compodium’s services.

– The demand for products and services which utilises modern innovations in technology to solve global challenges is growing exponentially and Compodium is a company providing solutions to these challenges. Globalisation requires many organisations to increase their global presence whilst reducing their environmental footprint and travel due to reasons such as reducing climate impact, reduce cost or circumventing travel restrictions due to a potential pandemic (e.g. the novel coronavirus of 2019). This drives demand for secure and vendor-agnostic video meetings. Travel restrictions should never constitute a barrier for meetings. Compodium’s long experience providing services to the Healthcare- and telehealth industry has made it possible for us to create a robust platform for video meetings which cater to the requirements of availability, security and authentication which is voiced from an increasing number of organisations and companies. This is a combination of features we are fairly unique to offer the market, says Bengt Grahn, CEO of Compodium International AB

– The challenges which today’s  global organisations, corporations and NGO’s face tend to be more demanding and they increasingly need to cooperate in order to quickly identify solutions. Video meetings is the fastest and most sustainable option to quickly gain access to leading global experts. The topics discussed can be anything from how to manage aid in the event of natural disasters, aid to fugitives or viruses which risk becoming a global pandemic. The services provided by Compodium can deliver the secure communication services needed by organisations such as the UN World Food Programme. We are rarely afforded the luxury of pre-warning of what the next emergency will be or what qualifications are needed to resolve them, says Marcus Persson, project manager at Business Sweden.

Mångmiljonuppdrag åt FN

Pressmeddelande:
IT-bolaget Compodium vinner mångmiljonuppdrag åt FN

Compodium erbjuder krypterade och autentiserande digitala videomöten och har precis landat ett uppdrag för en av världens största humanitära organisationer – FN World Food Programme. Uppdraget sträcker sig över fem år och FN i sin helhet köper tjänster inom detta område för omkring 500 miljoner kronor per år.

Globaliseringen, klimatkrisen och alltfler och snabba konjunktursvängningar är tre faktorer som banat väg för en växande marknad för digitala videomöten. IT- pionjären och Compodiums grundare Bengt Grahn har i 22 år arbetat med att få fler att välja digitala videomöten framför fysiska för att spara på jordens resurser.

– Fram tills idag har vi varit före vår tid när vi pratat om att ersätta fysiska möten med digitala för att hålla nere på de negativa klimateffekterna av resandet. Jag vet inte om vi ska kalla det Greta-effekten men nu är marknaden redo, säger Bengt Grahn, vd Compodium.

Compodium har löst en utmaning som de är så gott som ensamma om på marknaden. De kan erbjuda pålitliga, säkra, krypterade och autentiserande digitala möten. Med möjligheten att koppla upp sig på mötet oavsett vilken plattform du använder. Tidigare har dessa möten där behovet av sekretess är stort alltid hållits i den fysiska världen. Nu kan även dessa möten digitaliseras och det sparar jordens resurser i en tid då det verkligen behövs.

– Vi konkurrerar inte med tjänster som till exempel Skype. Våra kunder efterfrågar andra typer av lösningar där behovet av att kommunicera utanför den egna organisationen är stort och/eller behovet av hög sekretess är avgörande för valet av videoplattform, säger Bengt Grahn, vd Compodium.

Idag har Compodium stora internationella företag på sin kundlista, bland annat några av Sveriges globala exportföretag. Den senaste kundvinsten, FN World Food Programme innebär att bolaget växlar upp. Uppdraget omfattar att leverera digitala mötesrum för 20 000 anställda på 400 orter. FN köper idag tjänster inom detta område för 500 miljoner kronor per år. Man har dessutom en ambition att satsa ännu mer på digitala videomöten. För att föregå som ett gott exempel när det kommer till en hållbar möteskultur.

– Vi har genom avtalet också möjlighet att leverera tjänster till omkring 100 organisationer inom FN, säger Bengt Grahn, vd Compodium.

In Facebook’s footsteps!

Compodium raises availability and reduce environmental impact with new strategic partner.

Compodium, a pioneer within the secure video meeting field, has signed a server co-location contract with Hydro66. Although placing data centers in the northern parts of Sweden isn’t anything unique, Facebook did this as early as 2012.

With sustainability as a foundation for Compodium’s business it was important to choose a partner who offered co-location services using 100% renewable energy. This, and many other reasons is why Hydro66 was chosen as supplier.

With the demand for secure and reliable digital meetings rising globally and with current customer’s such as the UN, Husqvarna and the Swedish Medical Services Compodium are continuously working to stay ahead of the curve, improve service quality and -availability as well as reducing the environmental impact of our services and business.
