Forceful duo behind Velox
Velox was established in 2002, when Markus Autio,
who was then working at medical wholesale company, concluded that customer
logistics should be handled in an entirely new day - by fully utilising
information technology, minimising phases of work and simplifying processes.
The most important concept was that the information
system had to be user-friendly and easily modifiable to meet new operating
methods, and it had to be built around the process rather than the other way
round. Eeva Ylimartimo then joined the project and took responsibility
for the technological development, and soon we were headed in the right direction.
The first customer was Novartis, which significantly
affected the development of Veloxnet with its own needs and ideas. Novartis is
still our customer, a good example of how successful collaboration can continue
over a long time period and benefit both parties.
Velox's business idea is to virtualise, automate and
digitalise all possible phases of the customer logistics process. We want to
avoid unnecessary work, hidden costs an complications. When we succeed, it can
be clearly sees in our satisfied customers.
Our customers receive Finland's best logistics
service and can monitor their orders whenever they wish. We are
enthusiastically developing new services, with Veloxnet at their core. Five
years from now we aim to be a significant company in the Nordic Countries as an
expert in a new type of customer logistics.
