Finnish software helps care providers and parents to communicate

DaisyWhile on the move, a company from Oulu, Finland, has developed software to make it easier for day care providers and parents to communicate with one another.

The UK company Parenta has concluded a distribution contract for the Finnish company While on the move’s Daisy software. Last year the software was licensed for distribution by the French company Liger.

Daisy is an information system for early childhood education based on near field communications (NFC) technology and provides a mobile application for day care centres and family child care providers. Using the app, the provider can monitor on-line attendance reports and the hours of care provided. A new service is a web application which enables communication between parents and care providers, allowing parents to book care times, for example.

Parenta and Liger are companies offering various services for early childhood education, including reporting and invoicing systems. These companies distribute the Daisy software.

— As far as we know, there is no other software quite like Daisy on the market. The day care system is very different in France and the UK compared with Finland: during a typical day, children do not necessarily spend more than a few hours in day care. Care-hour tallies have up to now usually been marked manually in a notebook, so there is bound to be demand for an app of this type, says Kristiina Ilkka, Sales and Marketing Manager of While on the move.

— In addition to France and the UK, we have we have been looking into the Nordic markets and Germany. The Finnish cities using the service include Jyväskylä and Oulu. Around 16,000 children are included in the system. Negotiations are currently under way with several other Finnish municipalities, Ilkka continues.

While on the move was established in 2010 and employs around 10 people, including subcontractors. The company is headquartered in Oulu and additionally has offices in Tampere, Paris and Warwick, England.

Deltabit makes keys a thing of the past

DeltabitDeltabit wishes to change the traditional method that people use to enter their houses, i.e. keys.

Since 1998, the Finnish company Deltabit has been developing various fingerprint identification methods that can replace traditional locks and keys. Their work has brought results as the company’s products are garnering interest both in Finland and overseas.

Deltabit has launched the new Deltabit Gatekeeper Lite fingerprint identification product designed for access control at both business premises and at home. With this system Deltabit aims at market leadership in Finland and the rest of northern Europe.

— We have no competition in fingerprint identification in Finland. Our competition lies more in the manufacturers of older systems, i.e. traditional locks at home and access control systems for companies, says Jukka Hosio, the company’s Managing Director.

Deltabit’s products have already been sold for some time in Russia and Estonia and sales began in Poland in June. The company’s goal is to continue expanding to one or two countries each year. Sweden is the company’s next target market.

Sales of the Deltabit Gatekeeper access control and working time monitoring system, launched earlier by the company, increased six-fold in Finland in 2013. According to Deltabit, people’s awareness of fingerprint identification has increased following its arrival in smart phones and it is becoming increasingly prevalent.

— Fingerprint identification is now in the same position as the mobile phone game markets were five years ago, i.e. on the verge of explosive growth, Hosio says.
