Software solutions to support work and employees have led the Saarni Cloud group to strong growth. Now the group is strengthening its range of services with new business arrangements.
With the merger in December, CSI Helsinki Oy, which specializes in software solutions for law firms, joined the group. In addition, Saarni Cloud is intensifying its cooperation and continuing as a minority owner in Kiva Work, which offers personnel surveys.
CSI Helsinki is the market leader in legal software solutions in Finland. The company’s software is used for assignment management and invoicing in law firms of all sizes. In addition to Finland, the company has customers in Sweden and the Baltic countries.
- We will continue to be the same familiar and reliable long-term partner of law firms. I look forward to cooperation and sharing good experiences and learnings with other Saarni Cloud companies. As part of a wider group, we can develop our business more strongly both in Finland and abroad, says Harri Tiili, CEO of CSI Helsinki.
The merger, which took place in December, has no effects on CSI Helsinki’s employees, customers or partners. The company’s current management continues business development as an independent unit as part of the Saarni Cloud community.
In addition to CSI Helsinki, Saarni Cloud strengthens its service selection through closer cooperation with Kiva Work. Kiva Work (KW Employee Engagement Solutions Oy) helps its client companies and their personnel succeed with intelligent personnel analytics. The company offers a ready-made and easy-to-manage digital platform for conducting personnel surveys and analyzing the results. In the future, Kiva Work’s services will also be offered more actively to Saarni Cloud’s customer companies.
- The Kiva Work team is excited about the closer cooperation than before with the very successful SaaS companies of the Saarni Cloud Group. We share Saarni Cloud’s vision of supporting employees and the appreciation of work. Our personnel analytics solutions complement Saarni Cloud’s current service offering very well, says Ross Lantea, CEO of Kiva Work. Saarni Cloud’s goal is that all working Finns will have the group’s cloud services at their disposal in the future. The group’s CEO Kaj Rintala sees both companies as an excellent addition to the SaaS
- With the help of their software solutions, both CSI Helsinki and Kiva Work help their client companies to grow and their employees to succeed in their own work. With the help of the companies, we as a group offer an even more comprehensive set of services to a wider customer base than before. I am also happy that Saarni Cloud is seen by leading software companies as an attractive community to support growth.
