Votech's story

When the pandemic broke out at the start of 2022 our founders received multiple contacts from customers who needed help. During the exceptional circumstances we helped tens of companies and organisations organize remote and hybrid meetings and voting related to them. Some of our customers are Construction Company Fira, Invesdor, Oceanvolt, Netled, The Trade Union of Education in Finland, The Martha Association, The National Coalition Party, Centre Party, and the Finnish Amateur Radio League. From our customers' feedback and wishes, the idea to develop Votech was born. The desire was to create an easy to use local software to organize remote and hybrid meetings, as they had become the norm. Out of product develop, Votech was born. Votech is Votech Oy’s developed solution for remote and hybrid meetings and voting associated with them. Votech serves remote and hybrid meeting organizers with a full service offer. Jari Kaitera and Rainer Leit founded Votech in 2021. Their goal was to bring to the market the easiest to use remote and hybrid meeting solution, something that was unavailable at the time. The founders have helped leading companies and organisations in Finland hold their remote and hybrid meetings. At the same time they noticed how for many meeting organizers, organizing these types of meetings presented a challenge. There became somewhat of a burning sensation to create a better solution for their clients.
