After working a few years in the business – in 10-20 year old, unwieldy systems, Thordur Erlingsson and Joakim Rickardson saw a totally different future ahead. The future was going to need smoother, better and above all, internet-based systems, and at the beginning of the 21st century they decided to establish Asitis.
In 2002 two young lads from Skövde – one with an Icelandic accent and one with dialect of the Swedish province Västergötland – headed out in Sweden to improve system solutions within the financial industry. Without investors, the right accents or financial strengths, they managed to launch Sweden’s first client web for the debt collection business, already in 2003.
Since then we have managed to launch more services and systems for the financial industry, we have twice been awarded the “DI Gasell” (the business paper Dagens Industri award for the fastest growing companies in Sweden) and our staff numbers have grown – with many different accents – and at present we have our base in Skövde. We 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.
