Finnish-based IT company behind Valo’s solutions, Blue Meteorite (BM) is now Valo Solutions. Established 20 years ago in 2001 as a Microsoft consulting business, Blue Meteorite is known internationally especially for its award-winning Valo Intranet solution.
Blue Meteorite expanded the business in software product development in 2011 when the first version of intranet-in-a-box solution Valo Intranet was developed. Blue Meteorite expanded to international markets in 2015 when BM signed its first partner agreements in the Netherlands. Today, Valo Solutions operates not only in Europe, but also in Australia and North America through its subsidiaries together with + 250 delivery partners. With 300 customers and over 3 million users, it has gained its place in the digital workplace environment.
The name change became topical when Blue Meteorite’s consultancy business was sold to Finnish Valtti Kumppanit in September 2020.
Blue Meteorite continues focusing purely on software development. New name enables more consistent brand that matches with the two subsidiaries and the brand, especially in the European Markets. Blue Meteorite will continue as an auxiliary company name.
