Joachim Karlsson Becomes New Investor and Chairman of the Board in vloxq
[Stockhom, Sweden] - [2023-10-12]
vloxq is accelerating its operations by welcoming Joachim Karlsson, who is also the CEO of Almi Invest, as an Investor and Chairman of the Board.
vloxq develops a Configure, Price, Quote-platform that assists companies in their sales process by calculating prices, managing discounts, automatically creating quotes, and significantly reducing the risk of errors. The result is faster and more profitable deals and increased confidence for customers that they are getting the right products at the right price. Our research shows that errors in quotations are common and can reduce profitability in deals by 5–15 percent.
The platform easily integrates with business and CRM systems and has achieved great success with customers like Retriever, Nordlo, KH-Maskin, and Sympa.
Before Joachim Karlsson became CEO of Almi Invest, Sweden's most active investor in startups, he has been the Chief Strategy Officer at Bisnode, partner in the venture capital firm KTH Chalmers Capital, and CEO and founder of Focal Point AB.
“It feels incredibly inspiring to become part of vloxq. There is a tremendous potential to modernize and streamline how companies do business. I myself have many times both sent and received incorrect quotes. This is very costly, embarrassing, and strains the relationships between customer and supplier. With vloxq, we hope to put an end to this misery," says Joachim Karlsson.
Emil Westrin, CEO of vloxq, is very positive about the addition. "Joachim has a lot of experience and a wide network. He could have chosen to engage with any company, but he chose us at vloxq. With his technical expertise and experience as an entrepreneur, he becomes an important part of our team. We aim to make vloxq the obvious choice for CPQ solutions, especially when standard modules in CRM or business systems are not enough."
About vloxq: The company was founded in the fall of 2020 and offers a customizable and integratable CPQ solution. The client list includes names like Retriever, Nordlo, KH-Maskin, and Sympa.
