Nidos story and how it all began
Dr. Ismo Kauppinen
Chairman of the Board
As being closely involved in several companies in a different field I saw one common problem in all of the companies: there is no good cloud solution for supporting their business processes in the market. Many of the companies had their own special procedures, which made the company unique. This would have required costly tailoring of the existing general systems.
These companies were developing startups that heavily relied on utilizing market information and signals. These were collected by the company employees. In order to get this information efficiently and transparently available, the business processes should be run under one service. One well know business utility software sent their sales guy to meet me. After listing the processes, which he needed, he said to me: “The problem is that you don’t understand the difference between ERP and CRM”. So in his opinion “I” was the problem. I was not ready to settle for what the market has to offer, but I was requesting for something that I really need!!!
“Easy to use”
I asked the sales guy to demonstrate how to make a calendar event and add a contact to it. “Sure, it can be done,” he said. I asked them to add me as a contact. No, I can’t do it as you are not entered into the system. He closes the calendar and opens the contact module so he can type my details so that they could be later added when operating in the calendar… This is definitely not an intuitive flow of operation! Typical systems are built like that because it’s technically most logical. I want to see a system where you can add a contact to a calendar and create a new one as you go if needed!
I talked to several IT entrepreneurs to find out if someone had thought about making such a system already. The answer was always the same: In order to attract investors, you need to focus on a certain market segment and find a problem in a niche process, which you then solve the best way. Trying to even think to build a system with all the basic business processes – and with wide configurability – would be against all common business wisdom. Except one: this is what the customers really need!
I realize that many entrepreneurs, with these things in mind, made their businesses successful. They solved these problems by developing their own business management systems. Exactly from the same reasons stated here. As this was going to be my only option, I decided to do the same for me and for all the other fellow entrepreneurs. The path towards this “ultimate system” started already in 2007. Ten years after in 2017 a company was formed under the name “Nidos”, which is a Finnish word and means “binding important things together”.
