We are extremely proud of the outcome and look forward to seeing their continued success.”

- “Monterro has offered tremendous support in helping us cement our market position.” says Karl Thedéen, CEO of Outpost24. “We have a proven history of product innovation and together with Monterro we’ve been able to accelerate growth by building a best-in-class platform and a scalable business with their hands-on expertise and experience from helping software companies go global.” he continues.
