…a man named George Brontén who thought that the software offered on the market was too mainstream. He then conducted a massive survey at Sweden’s IT companys and laid the foundation for what would become the core of Upstream. The year was 1997. At a time when many believed that only a handful of big vendors were competent enough to develop good software, Upstream realized that there were smarter and more efficient solutions out there, ready to be intercepted. It is a big part of what makes Upstream unique, a real will and striving to look beyond the framework of the very best solution and not accept “good enough”.
The IT world is evolving and the structures are changing. Today, IT is an obvious part of all businesses, large and small. For Upstream, the journey is now beginning in earnest. When software giants paint beautiful pictures of how their solutions solve everything, for everyone, we know it’s never that simple. The most important thing is not the supplier’s market capitalization, but to ensure that the right competence and solution meet the specific needs. That’s what makes the difference. For us, going against the flow means prioritizing specific needs and solutions. . We have the flexible options. And by listening carefully, we get closer to the needs. It provides better precision – saving time, swearing and money. Above all, it leads to more efficient IT.
If you work for an IT supplier, you often have a responsibility to ensure that your customers’ IT works and is secure. The challenge is often that all customers’ environments differ and customers’ requirements are different. We help you with products that both broaden and deepen your service portfolio. Our solutions in security, productivity and backup are developed for IT suppliers who want to handle many customers from one place.
