“Since its launch in 1997, it is amazing to see how the company has evolved to become a market leader within Digital Asset Management.

“The use of Digital Asset Management solutions is widespread in the media industry where FotoWare has a stronghold, however, we are now seeing the demand for DAM solutions grow steadily regardless of industry”, says CEO Anne Gretland.

“We can draw parallels to the evolution of CRM. In its early stages, this was something only large enterprises saw a need for. However, today, virtually all companies crave an overview and control over their customers, contracts etc. We predict the same journey for FotoWare and Digital Asset Management as an industry, and we expect FotoWare to remain a driver of this growth and at the forefront of innovation,” she concludes.

“We are very pleased with the acquisition of FotoWare and look forward to building on the solid foundation that has already been created,” says Jostein Vik, Partner in Viking Venture. “Viking Venture has a specialized focus on Nordic B2B software companies, and FotoWare naturally fits into this category. The company already has a strong international presence, and the opportunities that this brings really excites us.”
