We are enabling employee involvement for issues that matter by making the process of finding, sharing, fixing and learning from issues and observations as easy as thinking about them and as rewarding as being remembered for them.
By doing this, we are making work more meaningful for all parties involved.
We are a Finnish technology company known for our easy-to-use solutions that enable organisations all over the world to involve their communities to observe, inspect and share anything and everything they see.
By doing that, we multiply the amount of observations (usually 10-50x) and enable our customers to gain greater understanding of what’s going on in their organisations, areas of responsibility and processes.
You may notice our platform being used for auditing grocery aisles by store workers, tracking and completing work orders by cleaners and mechanics, making sure the hotel feels welcoming by receptionists, learning from near misses to avoid accidents by truck drivers, helping commercial tenants to know what’s going on in their workplaces, or guaranteeing whistleblowers to stay anonymous. The common thread? Everybody wants to have a voice, solve issues that matter to them and be involved.
Even though we work with professionals, visionaries and, if we may, heroes in their fields, we can’t call ourselves that. It was almost by accident that we ended up serving these great people. Our history goes back to 2012, when Falcony (back then Plan Brothers) was founded on a cold winter day, like many other Finnish startups, in a Sauna.
When developing our first product Pelsu Pelastussuunnitelma, we ended up meeting thousands of facility, safety and security managers, and from all those conversations we learned about the problem of underreporting of incidents, under-completion of tasks and under-communication within and between departments.
For this huge problem we saw massive opportunity and decided to put our heart and grit on solving it. Pelsu Pelastussuunnitelma was sold to Caverion late 2019 and our two other products audits.io and incy.io were merged together under a single platform that is today known as Falcony.
We have always been very much a values-driven company. But we don’t just see values being part of our internal company culture. We see them as a natural part of the platform we develop, the service we provide and the experience that surrounds everything we do.
Everyone should be allowed to have a voice. Failures and mistakes need to enable learning without pointing fingers. The work itself should feel meaningful. And we should all have fun every once in a while regardless of our roles or titles.
Our strong belief is that orchestrating involvement is part of the solution. Involvement increases contribution. Releases agility. It builds trust. Drives belonging. Generates impact. And eventually becomes culture. Involvement creates meaning. And we all need that.
