New investment: Quickchannel
Blq invests 6,75 MSEK in streaming tech company Quickchannel. Quickchannel’s ambition is to facilitate digital collaboration and become the leading streaming provider globally.
Quickchannel helps their customers collaborate and communicate globally. The company quickly became leading within streaming of city council meetings and quickly helped some of the biggest public clients in Sweden such as Telia, Office Management and Skanska. Today Quickchannel is a full fledged SaaS company with over 150 clients in 9 markets and steady growth in public and private clients.
Quickchannel’s vision is to help our customers save time, money and work for a greener planet through streamed video. Webinars and live streamed meetings and events are now happening through our technology and we want to help organisations through video whenever, wherever.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Quickchannel has seen over 700 percent growth in their service, since organisations need to readjust into digital workplaces. Covid-19 has forced us all to adapt digitally incredibly quickly. CEO town halls, events and distance learning have all been popular among Quickchannel’s clients for a long time, but during Covid-19 new applications such as press conferences, virtual board meetings and distance training through gyms have become just as popular.
This spring has forced us to change our behaviour and we believe we will see a pre and post Covid effect in digital collaboration and communication.
