Led by the new CEO, SC Software is aiming to a significant leap in growth and opening of the international software market for its own products.

Väätäinen has served as Chairman of the Board of SC Software since the company was founded.
“I started my career as an entrepreneur more than 30 years ago, developing and selling my own software. SC Software brings me back to my roots”, Väätäinen says. “Technology and especially the software business is my professional passion. SC Software’s technology is a significant competitive advantage, and it is great to lead forward a healthy company. We build better software tells the essential about this company”, concludes Väätäinen.
Automating software production is a competitive advantage
SC Software is a cloud-based SaaS company that delivers customer-specific software solutions as well as industry-specific software products. In software production, the company leverages its own high-productivity development platform that automates much of the applications’ manual coding. From the beginning, the company’s strategy has been to radically increase the efficiency of software production.
“Establishing and building a company from scratch was very inspiring and enjoyable challenge”, says Tiina Vestman, founder and current CEO of SC Software. “Together we have built state-of-the-art software production and got to work with great customers and projects”, Vestman continues.
In the coming years, the company intends to focus on growth and expansion into international markets. Vestman will continue as Vice President in Sales at SC Software.
“I told Olli already in the early days of this company that I will hit the puck at the end of the hockey rink, then you can continue building the game! As a person and with his experience, Olli is everything that we can hope for the company and its future. It’s good to continue from here under his leadership”, Vestman summarizes.
