Innovations

We develop solutions for future challenges

Developing its own expertise has always been at the core of Granlund's activities. We have been involved in EU projects since 1992, before Finland was even a member state. By focusing on future innovation, we can offer comprehensive expertise, fresh views and high-quality software packages and services.

Our current innovation and development strategy is valid until 2016. It is focused on developing the service experience along with new energy solutions and co-operation models.

Our innovation activities are founded on:

• Expertise development. We are constantly adding to our expertise in our business areas, which serve to build a base for new service products. Our most important developmental tools are theses and different co-operation projects.

• Proof of Concept activity. We focus on the development and testing of our own software and their supplementary and support services. It is possible to create completely new types of commercial software based on software prototypes. We work with e.g. international software development companies and research institutes.
