How it started
After working a few years in the software industry – with 10-20 year old and unwieldy systems, Joakim Rickardson and Thordur Erlingsson saw a completely different future ahead. The future would need smoother, better and, above all, internet-based software and in the beginning of year 2000 they decided to start Asitis.
2002 two young lads from the small town Skövde – one with an Icelandic accent and one with an accent from the Swedish region Västergötland – went out to improve software in the financial industry. Without investors, the right accent or financial muscles they managed to launch Swedens’ first client web for debt collection already in 2003.
Since then we have managed to launch a lot of services and software for the financial industry, received the Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri award “DI Gasell” twice, as one of Swedens fastest growing companies, our staff numbers has grown with many different accents – and we still have our base in Skövde. We also have the same mindset as when we started: always to look 5 years ahead into the future – and to keep revolutionizing the business. Whether it is on the internet, in the cloud – or on the moon.
