Our story started in 1995 when Dr Auvo Finne founded the company to support Information and Communication Technology (ICT) projects in Finland.
The first ICT projects were, for example, related to Finland’s population registry using Oracle database and development of a Resource Management System called eSynergy. The official name The Synergy Company Finland, was registered in 2004.
First international Information Technology (IT) consultation projects started in Africa (Mozambique, Tanzania and Zanzibar) in 2005 and expanded in Asia (Bangladesh). These projects were large collaboration projects with stakeholders from the private sector, governmental sector and educational sector (often described as triple helix model). The focus shifted furthermore into Asia with assignments in Thailand and Uzbekistan.
Dr Finne is presently providing IT strategies and application architectures to World Bank and EU funded projects around the world. These projects include data analytics in the areas of health information systems and education management information systems.
Synergy company has been renewing itself to focus on Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) support and becoming more rooted in Southeast Asia (SEA). The goal is to catalyse new business for the Finnish enterprises in SEA with Thailand as a strategic stepping stone. Our focus is primarily on industries of the digital economy, healthcare, education and smart cities.
To make the strategy to happen, two Finnish leadership professionals joined the company in 2019. Both of them have substantial experience in doing business in Asia. Their private sector experience derives from corporate leadership (mobile communications business with Nokia) and enterprise marketing (design and manufacturing services with Logonet Group). Synergy Company International was registered in January 2020 and it operates as a facilitator between Southeast Asian and Finnish companies and organizations whereas The Synergy Company Finland will continue as an ICT consultancy provider.
The Synergy team complements their private sector competence with work for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) Thai-Finnish Chamber of Commerce TFCC and European Association for Business and Commerce EABC. Consequently, the renewed and stronger Synergy team has 35 years of combined work experience in SEA altogether.
The robust capability of the Synergy team with their valuable networking connections with various business communities and governmental/educational organisations in Thailand makes Synergy company well geared for growth in Thailand and Southeast Asian markets.
Synergy company is a member of TFCC, JFCCT, EABC, Finland-ASEAN Trade Association and Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce.
