Christmas Is Almost Here
The Sniffie-team is preparing to wrap up this year as it is almost time for Christmas and Christmas holidays. The year has been exceptional in many ways. We have improved our service and product, launched new features, acquired new customers, grown as a company, reinforced our ranks with new talent, faced corona, worked remotely and tirelessly pushing forward!
Our year had a good start, we had a good work flow and things got done! Then Corona happened, for a moment it felt like the whole world had stopped due to the pandemic. We´re lucky to have agile, adaptive and resilient people in our team.
We were quick to react to the Corona situation and one could say that our team adapted to complete remote work and to the situation extremely well. Corona could not stop us; it only slowed us down for a moment. To sum up, even though the corona situation is very unfortunate, it only made our team and culture stronger!
Some Highlights of Our Year
We launched SAMPO (acronym Sniffie´s Automatic Market Price Optimizer), our machine-learning based price optimizer that is already revolutionizing the process of automated pricing. It has been a long process to develop SAMPO and we are beyond proud and excited to be able to provide SAMPO to our customers.
Ai in pricing ebook
We released a new eBook this year! AI in Pricing, as the title of to book implies the book is comitted to the use of AI in pricing.
“The AI-revolution is not coming. It has already arrived. This book will give you a world-class peek into how AI is changing pricing and what it can do for YOUR bottom line”
Webinar series on pricing
We hired 7 new employees across all functions during the year 2020. The sense of unity in our team and the culture of our company grew stronger during this year. We even managed to organize outdoor team days (social distancing was practiced).
Sniffie Awards, a yearly tradition was created last year, in which every Sniffie team member is allowed to vote and nominate anyone in the team that he/she thinks has deserved one of the titles by performing in an exceptional way!
This year every single Sniffie team member received at least one vote for one of the titles! The titles of Sniffie Awards 2020 went to the following colleagues:
The Growth Driver – Erik Kaunismäki, This person has the knowledge, curiosity and courage it takes to set things into motion! He has taken the sales of AI as his business and brought a new, consultant-like approach to our sales!
