The Bergen Chamber of Commerce has awarded Highsoft the Villsauen 2022 prize. Villsauen recognises innovative companies with consistent international success, and the committee recognised Highsoft's significant impact on the international data visualisation market as the critical reason for the company's success. This is reflected in the fact that 99% of Highsoft's revenue comes from overseas, and 80 of the world's 100 largest companies are on its customer list.

Highsoft is a software company based in Vik in Sogn, Norway, founded in 2006 by software engineer Torstein Hønsi. The company specialises in developing software solutions for the financial, energy and maritime sectors and has a reputation for providing high-quality products and exceptional customer service.

Hønsi expressed excitement and gratitude upon the company being announced as the winner of the Villsauen 2022 award. Hønsi said, "We are thrilled to be announced as the winner of Villsauen. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are grateful to the Bergen Chamber of Commerce for recognising our efforts."

Highsoft is a member of Media City Bergen, a media innovation cluster with 110 member companies from the media- and media technology sector that work together to drive innovation. Atle Sivertsen, CEO of Highsoft, emphasised the importance of collaborating with the cluster and its other member companies.

"We are grateful for the support and resources that the Media City Bergen has provided us over the years," says Atle Sivertsen. "Their assistance has played a significant role in our success and allowed us to focus on creating innovative solutions for our customers."

Helge O. Svela, Media City Bergen’s CEO, is thrilled that Highsoft won the award. “The journey Highsoft has been on, taking on the world from their HQ in Vik, is nothing short of spectacular. It is so inspiring to see a company from the cluster having such great success, and I’m delighted that they get the recognition they deserve. We are so proud of having them as a cluster member.”

Atle Sivertsen reveals that Highsoft has exciting plans for 2023. Highsoft is committed to staying at the forefront of the data science- and analytics industry and providing its customers with the best solutions.

"We are very excited about the opportunities and challenges that the coming year will bring. Our focus will be on continuing to improve and expand our product offerings, as well as increasing our presence in the Asia-Pacific market. Asia is a rapidly growing market for data visualisation and analysis, and we see great potential for our products there. We plan to increase our regional presence through partnerships and collaborations with local companies and organisations."
