Innovative Swedish digital developer Vocean today announced the availability of its powerful idea platform on Microsoft AppSource, an online cloud marketplace providing tailored line-of-business solutions.
“This is absolutely fantastic news. Microsoft has high demands on the companies they work with, so this is big for us”, says Peter Kollin, CEO of Vocean.
Vocean, which is based in Söderhamn and has an office in Hudiksvall, was founded in 2018 by Peter Kollin and Daniel Kassell. The company develops and sells a digital platform that can be used, for example, to collect thoughts, ideas or opinions from people both inside and outside organizations around the world. All the collected data can be easily compiled into reports and insights using artificial intelligence. These reports can then be used as a basis for future decision-making.
“Our platform helps organizations become profitable by utilizing the creative power of their employees and those who have some relationship to the business”, Kollin says. “It becomes easier to generate new ideas and develop them, while at the same time it gives the entire workforce and the ecosystems surrounding the business the opportunity to participate. By engaging in digital co-creation you can scale new heights”.
Toby Bowers, General Manager, Business Applications Group, Microsoft Corp., said, “We’re happy to welcome Vocean to Microsoft AppSource, which gives our customers access to the best solutions available from our extensive partner ecosystem. Microsoft AppSource offers partner solutions such as Vocean’s idea platform to help customers meet their needs faster.”
A collaboration agreement was signed with Microsoft at the end of June, which means the Vocean platform is available right now at its page on Microsoft AppSource.
“The timing is perfect,” says Kollin. “The world is becoming increasingly dependent on digital solutions, and organizations have begun to realize how important it is not just to rely on a small homogeneous group of people to make all the decisions. You have to include employees and people you know around you to ensure any decisions you take will have the best outcomes possible. We already have large international companies that are interested in our platform. Our goal is to have 1 million active users by 2025, and thanks to this collaboration with Microsoft, I am convinced we will reach this goal”.
