Is it technically challenging? Might be for us (if you sell it well)

 

When it comes to commissioned work we have mostly done long-term development agreements and/or joint ventures, but lately we have been shifting our focus to PACE so this happens more rarely. In the distant past we also did project work from time to time, but nowadays it might happen only if the technical challenge would be very interesting and presents a learning opportunity.

 

 
Ottikone.fi An online store for customized and unique fishing lures. We took the challenge because of the need for advanced customization engine behind the service. And we did the online shop in the need. The engine is still quite nice, even if we say so ourselves, and it was launched already in 2012.

Turvallisuusohje.fi An online application for the Centre of Occupational Safety that allows anyone to create a quick and easy accordion shaped safety information print. Not so challenging tech anymore, but was an interesting one in 2011. And still runs strong.

Try, try, always try! And then learn

 

From the very start we have been playing with new possibilities and ventures. Fair to say, we have had our fair share of success, but also of failures. Probably we have done things a bit more right than wrong as we are still here and evolving! 

 

 
Mikseri.net The oldest music community in Finland, founded in 2001. We got the ownership of Mikseri as a "side-deal" in 2009. We tried to reverse the service's negative trend, but due to our inexperience we probably just accelerated it. We then tried to find another way and sold first the majority to Pop Media Oy in 2012 and the rest of the service in early 2016.
