Started in 2000, Stratsys was born out of the frustration caused by trying to carry out and follow up strategic tasks in organizational environments. At that time information was often housed in diverse mailboxes and PowerPoint presentations, with a significant risk that the most important actions the organization needed would go undone.
Having met as students at the University of Lund, founders Magnus Pernvik and Henrik Lepasoon figured that it must be possible to make smarter use of IT. There are CRM tools to manage customers, business systems to keep track of the numbers, so surely there should be good tools for managing strategies? Together they coined the term Stratsys – a combination of “strategy” and “system” – and the platform was born.
