Valo Intranet has won the Best Intranet/Extranet 2017 Award for the second consecutive year at the European SharePoint Conference, and was also a finalist in the Mobile Solution Category of the ESPC Awards.

Valo Intranet has been developed by Finnish digital service company Blue Meteorite. It is built on Microsoft’s technology stack – Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint and Azure – and facilitates collaboration, productivity and work satisfaction.

The European SharePoint Conference is one of the world’s most significant events to centre around Microsoft technologies.

“From the beginning we have had two distinct factors working for us: a really good product and a distinctive brand,” says Tiina Manninen, product marketing manager of Valo Intranet. “This must mean we are doing something right and the intention is to continue on the same track.”

The Valo Intranet platform has more than 500 000 daily users and the business has tripled in size in 2017. Behind the success is the company’s business model, where 110 partners distribute the product in more than 30 countries.

Blue Meteorite is also about to open a subsidiary in Montreal, Canada to take on the world’s largest IT market found in North America.

Manninen concludes that the award is a win for the Finnish technology industry as a whole. “The recognition is certainly significant for us. But in the grand scheme of things, Finnish tech know-how is also being awarded here. We definitely want to promote Finnish code abroad.”
