Avanio is a Finnish pioneer in cloud technology. As a full-service house, we implement your company´s development projects from the definition of needs to the final product and maintenance.
The story of Avanio started in 2015, when Antti began invoicing part-time IT consulting through his own company while working full-time for Microsoft. When Microsoft closed down its smartphone operations in Finland, Antti was facing a new situation with many other IT professionals.
Through a familiar acquaintance, Antti and Janne got to know each other and decided to become a full-time entrepreneurs in 2016. At that time, the name was still AJR Solutions Oy. Operations got off to a fast start and the first brave employees were soon hired.
From the very beginning the company’s service offering has included cloud and software consulting as well as IoT and software projects. With the help of a team of professionals a pioneering company in cloud technology began to take shape. The service offering was expanded with the Microsoft Direct (Tier — 1) CSP partnership. Additionally a tool for cloud migrations was created.
The company has grown steadily year by year in terms of both turnover and number of employees.
The company employs more than 46 professionals in our offices in Salo, Tampere and Helsinki.
From 2021, AJR Solutions Oy will continue its journey as Avanio Oy. With the new name and fresh look, Avanio will serve its customers even better by operating in accordance with its core values; reliably, boldly, with high quality and ever evolving.
Avanio has gained customers’ trust in diverse projects and has developed boldly in a changing environment during the corona pandemic. Growth has only been possible with a great team spirit and forward-looking attitude. Avanio has got the right touch of madness, combined with a strong background and desire to develop. Avanio will continue to be a pioneer in cloud technologies in the future.
At the time of writing this, Avanio has completed more than 153 software projects, sells more than 7,262 MS Office monthly licenses and serves 100+ customers.
In addition, during the history of the company, we have drank more than 23,000 cups of coffee and listened to at least 1,200 Tommi’s insipid jokes.
