21 Grams offers postal management to corporate customers by leveraging its technology leadership in postage optimisation, in combination with its unique set of knowledge and experience of post, print and document management software. The Company’s offering allows customers to outsource their non-core production of bulk mailings, simplify their communication processes and to significantly reduce postage expenses by exploiting savings opportunities on deregulated postage markets.
In 2009, all European postal markets will be deregulated. 21 Grams’ vision is that we will soon buy postal services as we buy telecom services today. The Company aims to become a leading European player within postal management on this deregulated European postal market.
21 Grams was founded in October 2004 by Stefan Blomqvist, previously CMO and head of Europe at software company StreamServe, and a management team with extensive experience from executive positions in the postal, printing and document management software industries. This team included Kaj Peterson, formerly head of Swedish Post’s hybrid print and post service (“eBrev”). Since winning its first contract in December 2004, the Company has developed the technology platform and has successfully managed to introduce the concept of
postage optimisation on the Swedish market. The strategy has been to use the Swedish market, being the only deregulated postal market in Europe, as a testing ground and springboard for a large-scale international expansion from 2006 onwards, as more European markets get deregulated.
21 Grams’ principal customers are companies and organisations with medium to large letter volumes, such as banks, insurance companies, telecom operators, utilities and the public sector. Customers as of November 2005 include Swedbank, Handelsbanken, Canal Digital and Scribona. The Company has formed partnerships with several types of players in the post and print business, including postal
operators, printshops, Bankgirocentralen and several commercial banks.
