our-story

Our story

Our story began after our founder Tommi Kokonaho stopped reading novels and switched to non-fiction at the age of 14. Through reading different non-fiction, he got excited about the Renaissance man. According to Wikipedia, a renaissance person is a person who has exceptionally broad knowledge of several different fields of art or science.

After graduating as a lawyer from the University of Helsinki, our founder worked as an employee for eight years. The desire to become an entrepreneur again stemmed from the passion to do things better and more efficiently, so that the vitality of the companies increases and the staff feel well.

Our company seeks added value for customers through comprehensive service and versatility. We combine training, consulting and software as part of our development services. Our saying is: “The software supports what education enables!”.

milestones

Development of people and companies since 2004!

During our long-term operation, we have seen the pain points of various industries and companies and how to overcome them. It’s amazing how business operations and business management have changed in Finland. There is still a lot of development, but as a general rule, companies are on the right track.

Our ownership base

We are a company owned by Finns:

Partner Tommi Kokonaho, CEO, LLM, BPS, eMBA, NTM

Partner Anne Varis, Master of Science (data processing), main developer of Aksios.pro since 2008

Partner Vesa Tuomala, Henley MBA

Partner Jarno Mäkelä, Master of Engineering Degree in Information Technology

Milestones of our company

In 2004, our operations began

We started as a consultant for business acquisitions.

Our operations started with consulting in business acquisitions and strategies. On the first day, we were asked to educate about corporate acquisitions.

In the assignment, we were asked to prepare the content for an entrepreneurship test. We carried out the assignment and found that we can make a better software for implementing tests and surveys. That’s what we did.

2005 programming started

We built Aksios.pro software 1. version to support our company’s own operations. The first preparatory training for the specialized professional degree in management began in 2005. The first consultations with business strategies began.

2006 e-learning environments for training

We started using the online learning environment as part of the Blended learning training model, where training days were supported by online learning.

2008 educational games for mobile devices

We figured out mobile learning games.

In addition to our other activities, we built a mobile learning game engine for Nokia’s Symbian operating system and published the first game. Another game was built for the Android operating system.

2010 basic focus on training, consulting and software

Our company’s focus was on current service products for training, consulting and software developments.

Despite the good reviews of the mobile learning games, they did not pay off, so we took a timeout and focused on the current service products. Version 2.0 of Aksios.pro was released in 2013.

2018 Sitro.net software development began

Our company’s focus is even more on software that supports companies’ operations, such as AksiosPro. At the end of the year, the planning and development of a new software began – sitro.net.

2019 planting the seed of growth

At the beginning of the year, we were recruiting more staff. We invested even more in product development for both Aksios.pro and Sitro.net.

In addition, we allocated resources to new customer acquisition regarding our software, company-specific trainings, seminars and online courses.

We clarified the product/service portfolio and renewed marketing communications.

The theme of the year has also been preparing software and online courses for the international market in English.

2020 Surviving the coronavirus pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic completely changed our business strategy. We had to significantly reduce our operations and stop the planned development activities and the launches of new services.

2022 Focus on core business and internationalization

The coronavirus pandemic highlighted the importance of our core business and also its vulnerability. During the corona years, there were no opportunities for growth in Finland. We renewed our company’s strategy. In Finland, we focus on our three mainstays, but in the future we will seek international customers more strongly, especially in terms of applications. An example of this is the bilingual application CandP of www.sitro.net – copy and paste.

Examples of customized services for customers:

Some customer implementations are briefly described below.

Construction and implementation of business strategies

A business strategy was created for real estate companies in the province. The process started by meeting with the company’s management to discuss their vision of the company’s future and goals. The company’s owners also participated in the discussion and it was clarified what they want from their ownership.

In the strategy process, the company’s customers and stakeholders were interviewed, filming their experiences of the company and its operations. A morning-long event was organized for the company’s staff, where they announced the start of the company’s strategy development, the schedule and how they can participate in developing the company’s competitiveness. At the same time, a summary of the video interviews of their customers and stakeholders was shown.

A survey was carried out for the company’s entire staff, which discussed, among other things, how the company’s operations can be made more efficient and how employees can make their own work more efficient.

The participants in the strategy group were selected from the company’s different personnel groups. In this way, different views were obtained on the development of the company and its future journey. The strategy group processed the results of the survey conducted for the entire staff and drew up a preliminary corporate strategy and its action programs.

A strategy seminar day was organized for the company’s entire staff, where the staff worked on and prepared the initial vision prepared by the strategy group.

Finally, the corporate strategy confirmed by the company’s management and owners was published to both the company’s staff and the most important stakeholders.

The implementation of the strategy was monitored for six months.

 

The company got in touch just during their rush period. We recommended starting the strategy process after their busy schedule. After the end of the rush period, the process was started by defining ownership strategies together with the company’s owners. The company had three different offices.

The company’s staff was informed about the start of the strategy process. Various surveys were carried out for them and the strategy group, which had personnel from different offices, worked together with the management on the actual company strategy.

In order to be able to authorize the operation of different locations and at the same time measure the performance and profitability of the operation, the company’s structure was changed into profit units.

During the implementation of the strategy, the company’s management team and CEO were also sparred.

 

Training day focusing on business strategy, i.e. the company’s “playbook” and the way of working. The training wanted to strengthen management, supervisors and staff to understand how important it is to strive for the same operating models in customer contacts via e-mail, phone and face-to-face. In addition, the training day took into account the goals set, the consistency of operations and the observation and elimination of wasted costs.

 

Training for managers of five large companies. The day dealt with stakeholder management, i.e. how the activities of one subcontractor affect other companies in the network. At the same time, the operating model of the common network was built.

 

Development of sales, marketing and customer service

In connection with the development of the company’s sales work, the sales skills of the salespeople were tested with a survey. A development path based on needs was planned for each of them and they were sparred with webinars, i.e. online seminars (an event carried out via the Internet, in which both the performers and the audience participate from their own computers). Some of the salespeople practiced telephone sales for two days at our company’s office. In this way, their sales work could be monitored and developed in practice. Part of the training was held in English, because there were also participants from both Sweden and England.

 

The experts’ training day built an understanding of sales, the sales process and additional sales. The skills of the experts at the customers were developed so that they could find additional sales targets for the company’s actual sellers.

 

Training day on customer service and marketing communications. Difficult customer situations, the importance of cooperation, well-being at work and self-sufficiency at work were also taken into account during the training day. In marketing communications, a new model for thanking customers was found, which received very good feedback from new and lost customers.

 

Development of management team work

The development of the activities of the association’s management team began by following the work of the management team by participating in observer meetings. Tests examining observation channels were carried out for members of the management team. The results of the tests were reviewed with the members of the management team. In this way, it was possible to explain why some of the members had conflicts related to personal chemistry and operating style. Some of the members of the management team had a different view of the issues to be discussed, and their methods of operation in the management team meetings were also partly contradictory. The development of operations also included going through the work of a professionally functioning management team and measuring the management team’s performance.

 

Development of supervisor and management skills

The person started as a company manager for the first time. She needed help to change the operation of the unit, resolve personal conflicts and maintain her own self-reliance. A personal development program was built for her, including training sessions and practice tasks. The personal training lasted for six months. She sent her superiors to similar training.

 

Training aimed at the company’s management and supervisors, where every two weeks they were given sparring training lasting a few hours in the morning on managing people, sign language, sales and customer service.

 

For the company’s supervisors, a half-year-long meeting, a webinar, or an online seminar (an event carried out via the Internet, in which both the performers and the audience participate from their own computers), was held, where supervisors from different locations in conference rooms developed their own managerial work and harmonization of the company’s internal functions under guidance.

 

In the training of the company’s new supervisors, their skills were developed regarding the responsibilities and duties of supervisory work, and they were given work tools and operating models for various supervisory situations. The training day also dealt with leading the meetings, making the group efficient and creating a team spirit.

 

The skills of a good employee

The company’s development day discussed the skills and behavior patterns of a good employee, as well as cooperation between different professional groups.

 

The training day focused on understanding oneself and different human styles and behavior patterns. As part of the training, perception channel and action style tests were carried out. Through the results of the tests and coaching for various exercises, it was observed how certain operating styles or observation channels might cause disagreements and even contradictions.

 

The company ordered performance training. In the planning of the training day, it was decided to deal with good presentation skills, fear of presentation and giving a presentation. The performer’s sign language and use of voice were also a key part. In the training day, we also practiced different models for building a presentation or giving different speeches. The participants’ presentations were videotaped, so they can see their own progress.
