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.

– Det är viktigt för oss att kunna erbjuda våra kunder digitala alternativ vare sig det gäller behandling och rådgivning, utbildningar eller kartläggningar. Att göra vår expertis och våra tjänster mer tillgängliga är den främsta drivkraften bakom vår satsning på digital företagshälsa, säger Christina Nilsson, verksamhetsutvecklare inom e-hälsa på Avonova.

– Compodium har ju länge levererat videokonferens lösningar till vårdsektorn och att på det här sättet kombinera styrkan i våra säkra digitala vårdrum med videokonferenshårdvara från Office Management är extra spännande, säger Stefan Friis på Compodium.

Avonova är en av Sveriges ledande aktörer inom företagshälsa och ledarsupport. Med service på ca 120 orter, ca 650 medarbetare och en omsättning på ca 800 miljoner kr är Avonova en rikstäckande leverantör av hälsotjänster.

– Videokonsultationen kan ske från jobbet, hemmet eller var ifrån det passar klienten bäst. Vi upplever ett stort intresse och ökad efterfrågan från våra kunder då det ger stora effekter på arbetsmiljö och miljö – och inte minst en avsevärd tidsbesparing, avslutar Christina.

Compodium International and Telia in unique collaboration for Swedish Healthcare

Stockholm, November 14, 2017
PRESS RELEASE

In September, Telia launched their Digital Care Rooms and Telia Digital Health Planning  services which build on technology from Compodium.

We are proud to work with a company as renowned as Telia with their new initiatives in E-Health, says Stefan Friis, Nordic Sales Manager at Compodium.  With our experience in delivering digital meetings to the Healthcare Industry through our collaboration with Inera, this is the right arena for us.

We offer an opportunity for patients to meet with their own Healthcare Provider who is familiar with their individual history. This, paired with the high security and simple user workflow of the solution ensures the patient can feel secure. Says Jan Ribe, responsible for ProCare, a part of Telia’s Healthcare Division.

Telia Digital Care Rooms enables Public and Private Healthcare Providers to establish a Digital Presence. The communication is secure, encrypted and is initiated only when the patient  has authenticated via BankID. The solution is furthermore able to be integrated into e.g. journal- and booking systems.

A key part of our offering is the ability to  package in-house and third party applications in a complete solution. Telia’s Digital Health Planning Solution is a good example of this, Jan Ribe continues. To work with an ecosystem of partners with specialist competency such as Compodium is therefore incredibly important for us.

  • Offers Healthcare Professionals an improved working environment with decreased levels of stress, improved cooperation and less time spent looking for information.

“What we do is to set up a disaster relief service that the authorities will then refer to for different meetings. We have done similar things in Sweden earlier with, among other things, the Armed Forces who can work together to quickly rescue and assess the extent of injuries. In Texas, we have received a request from the hospitals.” says Jon Strindlund, Head of International Markets at Compodium.

Compodium has had a subsidiary in the United States since 2013. One of the US subsidiary’s customers is the Texas-based company Vesalius Ventures with interests in online care. The request came from the Vesalius team Andrew Nerlinger, Lori and David Balch who are now coordinating disaster relief, David and Lori are pioneers in Telemedicine and have extensive experience in “Disaster Medicine” and coordinating disaster relief. They are now engaged in the work to quickly build resources to help with the work to support care in the disaster-stricken Texas. As they already use Compodium’s services, they now want to enable additional resources to coordinate different relief efforts.

Compodium enters the US market

Compodium is pleased to announce the opening of our US office in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Chapel Hill is part of Research Triangle Park (RTP) which has two well-known Medical Universities, Duke University and University of North Carolina, (UNC). RTP is also known for it life science and medical device industry. Our wholly owned subsidiary ComPodium Inc. is managed by our President Bjorn Nordwall, a senior executive with global experience in key industry paradigm shifts, such as the mobile internet and mobile health care. Bjorn has 30+ years of experience from global 500 organizations as well as emerging companies in key market arenas.
The US market is of special interest because of the changes brought on by “The Affordable Healthcare Act” one piece of the act aims at moving towards pay for performance rather than transaction. Creating Accountable Care Organizations to improve quality and get better efficiency where communications and visual collaboration will play an important role.
—“The US market is very competitive and expensive to enter, however we feel that we can leverage the experience we have managing the visual collaboration and virtual meetings for the Swedish healthcare. The market is huge with no established market leader in the healthcare space and it is therefore an important market for us” Bengt Grahn CEO Compodium International AB.
—“As the US healthcare industry is fragmented with several stakeholders and on top of that in a stage of change. We have an excellent opportunity to get recognition as a thought leader using our virtual meeting platform to connect old legacy technology with the plethora of mobile devices that are expected to be used in the healthcare system. The mobile devices have an opportunity to connect the doctors with their patients creating better communication and efficiencies in the system.” Bjorn Nordwall President Compodium Inc
