Chief Executive Officer
Telescope Software AB is based in Lund, Sweden and has since the late 1990's delivered consultants and customer adapted software solutions within a wide range of business segments.
Over the years we learned that efficiency, predictability, accuracy in delivery and 100% quality pays off. We build long term business relations by combining Scandinavian engineering skills with contemporary tools within all fields of IT.
Welcome to our website and please do not hesitate to contact us for a quotation on your unique idea!
Every now and then we have activities where the whole family is invited. This can be activities such as bowling, fishing, go cart or just after work at a restaurant. Apart from having a good time, these events offer possibilities to share experiences and connect with new friends.Read more
Since many of our employees does not come from Sweden originally, these small social events are an important platform for forming new relations and talking with other Telescopers about everything from where the best bread is sold to how to interact with Försäkringskassan or Vårdcentralen. Next event is curling in Landskrona on March 5.
We are proud to announce the employment of our first recruitment and competence managers located in Ukraine. Kate Kostiuk and Tanya Litvin joined us since February 11, and will be working out of Kiev and Kharkov respectively.Read more
Kate and Tanya will work with competence management, recruitment, head hunting, screening and language skill evaluations. In addition to this, they will assist us in implementing our long term target to increase Telescope's visibility in east Europe, in order to attract additional engineers who wish to relocate to Sweden and work with Telescope.
Welcome to the company, Kate and Tanya!
Telescope closed 2012 just as strong as the past year has been developing for us. We have five new contracts just signed and another four agreements that is falling into place. With the five newcomers we are 40 consultants in assignment in Sweden, and with in-house developers in Davao, Latvia and Kiev, CM & BPO staff in Davao and management/admin in Davao and Sweden, we are over 50 Telescope employees worldwide.Read more
In-house development of customer projects is playing a less significant role for us today, than the first years of Telescope's history, but we have a few interesting customer projects every year. Among the projects of 2012 I think Fredrik Nygren's work as development and PM responsible in Davao for Priside.se, serves as a good example of how also a relatively small in-house activity can add exciting values and possibilities to a company primarily depending on consultancy services. Fredrik left to work for a year in Asia and Telescope got to deliver what could very well be the next big service exchange site in Sweden. Exciting projects for 2013 is for example the finalization of MyBetPals.com and a discussed service web site for a major energy measurement service provider.
The demand for our consultancy services at our customers' sites has increased continuously during the past year, and it is safe to say that it has been an interesting year with a lot of exciting and sometimes nerve wrecking twists and turns. We have been upgraded to preferred supplier for Sony Mobile Communications, much thanks to an exceptionally good cooperation with eWork that shouldered the Sony-MSP role, and largely as a result of this we doubled the turnover of Telescope during 2012. In addition, our presence grew steadily with a couple of other smaller but equally important customers and we tied several strategic partnerships that we will build on during 2013. It remains an ambition to continue to grow within consultancy services for the telecommunication infrastructure, and we will increase our focus on services for the sports betting business. Just days ago we agreed to become the preferred integration partner for a major sports betting market maker.
As far as the financial situation allowed us, we have worked towards implementing the vision to continuously develop the competence bank of all Telescope employees. This was done either by a deepened engagement in customer technology and customer challenges, by education, by new types of assignments or by gradually redefining current consultancy positions into new roles. Some like to be managers and others like to trouble shoot memory leaks, but a person in development and movement is most often an inspired person, and that is what makes a happy human, a good coworker and a great ambassador for our company.
The continued ambition during 2013 will be to make sure all Telescope employees find their assignments interesting and challenging, while simultaneously securing a stable financial foundation and growth for the company. We will continue to grow primarily by adding expert engineers to the Scandinavian market. In other words we will continue to look in the CV before we look in the passport, and bring in strong engineers to customers that are willing to open their eyes for qualities not primarily relating to nationality or language, but rather to the technologies that drives their business forward. In addition it is an absolute target to maintain competitive prices on our services by keeping administration and management stream lined and by utilizing global function groups as much as we possibly can, without losing efficiency and local presence. The next step in line with this is to set up one or two competence management nodes in Kiev and/or Kharkov, and transfer selected tasks from Lund and Davao, to Ukraine.
With this short summary of 2012 I wish to thank both customers and employees for being a part of Telescope! My door is always open, and I want you to always feel welcome to contact me for discussions about whatever might be on your mind. Happy New Year and powerful 2013!

In October Sony MIB developer Ed Popkov and CEO Henric Blomqvist represented Telescope at the employment fair Career4it, in Kiev.
During December 13 to December 16 about thirty of us Telescopers went to Iceland for four fantastic days of spectacular nature, great food and a taste of the infamous Reykjavik night life.Read more
As soon as we landed in Keflavik we headed for the hot springs named the Blue Lagoon to relax in boiling hot healing water, with a cold drink. A perfect setting for the start of our team building. Followed by a lobster feast in the evening, the Thursday was complete and everyone could fade away in the warmth of CenterHotel Plaza.
The following day we did the famous Iceland round trip called the Golden Circle visiting the national park Thingvellir, the mighty waterfall Gullfoss and the hot springs of the Geysir area. The nature of Iceland is nothing less than spectacular and the weather smiled at us during the whole day. In the evening we all enjoyed an Icelandic Julbord, i.e. a Christmas Table, at Restaurant Reykjavik, and finally even Eugene could get full. :-).
The third and final day, Saturday, we left open for free activities. While some of us went back to the Blue Lagoon to cure the "Julbord" headache, others went for horse riding, sightseeing and shopping in Reykjavik. The extreme outdoor team, lead by Anja and Ed, hiked up a windy mountain and for a while we worried we would never see our dear colleagues again. All in all this team building trip must be said to be one of the better ones - if not the best - we ever did in Telescope. Iceland is a fantastic and exotic destination with grand nature, great food and very friendly people.

Mohammed "Mo" Hafiz Hechanova is a welcomed addition to the in house team in Davao, the Philippines. He is currently working with customer projects as a PHP developer. Previously Mo worked as a .NET developer for ABS-CBN, a major broadcasting company in the Philippines.
Wenshan Pan is our first employee from China. Wenshan has already established himself as a valued team member within the RF-development section at ST-Ericsson in Lund, and we are in the process of inviting at least one of Wenshan's former colleagues to Sweden and ST-Ericsson. Previously Wenshan worked at Ericsson, Beijing, China as a Software design engineer for TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA base station development. Prior to this, he worked at Elektrobit oy (Beijing China and Oulu Finland) for WiMax base station development.
On the administrative side we have also found competent reinforcement. Anja Bränd joined Telescope in April and she will cover just about every administrative task that might arise. Prior to joining Telescope Anja has worked both abroad and in Sweden. Her two latest positions where as coordinator at Edeby Ripsa Gods managing events and day to day duties, and as Area and Hotel Manager at Langley Travel on Corsica.
Management extends a warm welcome to all new Telescope staff!
