A company in transformation
“We have been through a huge transformation on all fronts in the company”, says CEO Bo Høvedsgaard Iversen enthusiastically when he tells about recents events in the company.
“We have set new and ambitious goals for the company and have also added new, strong profiles to the team. Among others, our new CTPO, Martin Andersen, who – with his experience from large, international companies – can help develop our technology in new directions, and gear us technologically to be able to achieve our new goals, ”says Bo.
In addition, the company has launched the innovative community, Future Care. A community that consists of stakeholders in the care sector and seeks to find a holistic solution and technology that can solve the future challenges in the care sector.
“Future Care is another big step for the company, which we are really looking forward to unfolding. It will be truly exciting to work in this way with the care sector’s stakeholders and actually find real solutions, ”says Bo.
“Our new goals, our new, strong team and the launch of our innovative community have really transformed the company – and continue to do so. It’s a very exciting proces to be a part of. And therefore it also seemed naturally to change the company name – so that it matches our new point of view, identity and goals ”.
Livius – We DO Care
The name Livius Technologies was chosen since it has many nuances that match the company’s values, Bo explains.
“We liked that the name refers to both ‘life’ (in Danish; liv) and ‘technology ’. Because it is central to our company that we focus on both people and technology. We do not see ourselves solely as a technology company. We focus on people and their everyday lives, and how technology together with organizational development can make their everyday lives better ”.
That is also why the slogan of Livius Technologies is “We DO Care”, says Bo.
“Through the years, we have built a significant expertise with regards to digital care solutions, as well as to how to best support the organizational efforts and implementation. We are driven both by developing this field and making a real difference for the individual who needs support. We DO care ”, he says smiling.
At the same time, the word ‘liv’ (in English; life) in Livius is also a nod to the old name Life-Partners.
“It gives a certain continuity, through all the changes. Because it’s of course the same values and our many years of experience and good cooperation with the municipalities, that our new organization is building upon,” he says.
“Livius will be the new colleague”
Livius Technologies is now going through an exciting process of further developing the digital platform that was previously called Life-Manager – that in the future will be called Livius. The company also plans to include completely new technologies in their future solutions.
“In this proces Livius Technologies will naturally also include findings from Future Care that will pinpoint which technological solutions and features are needed” says Bo.
“In the future, Livius will not only be a helpful, effective and innovative tool, but also a sparring partner, mentor and colleague for the user. This means that Livius, together with the user, will be able to solve tasks – so that resources are freed up, that can then be used where they are most useful”, he adds.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this journey!”
On the business front, there are also new, big plans in store.
“We have plans for an upcoming IPO, which we are currently working towards. In addition, we will also further develop our organizational efforts and implementation. It is a cornerstone of our success that we not only offer the right digital solutions, but also ensure optimal integration of them in the daily work”, says Bo.
On the question of what Bo is most looking forward to in the coming time, he doesn’t hesitate.
“I look forward to being a part of this journey with this inspiring team! I look forward to launching our many new initiatives and seeing them grow. And not least, I look forward to being a part of the solution, to the great challenges we already face in the care sector, which will only grow in the coming years. That Livius creates more and more value for our users “, he concludes.
