Identum was born as a bootstrapped startup between the fjords and mountains on the west coast of Norway, more specifically in Bergen.
The company was founded by Eric and Manuel, who firmly believe that the recipe for success is "happy customers" on repeat.
There are many more of us today, but one thing hasn't changed: We cherish our beloved Customers.
That's what keeps us driven to provide IAM solutions that are secure, efficient, and tailored to the unique needs of your business.
How did we get here?
We still see ourselves as a startup from Bergen. Our history is full or great memories, phases of learning and growth, and a relentless obsession for being there for our Customers when they need us.
Our Customers are our oxygen, the blood that flows through our veins, and the reason for why we go to work every day. This mindset is part of our heritage and something we want to keep - regardless of how many colleagues we have or how many Customers choose to work with us.
A slice of startup history
Here are some of the events that have shaped Identum into what we are today. A small startup adventure that has grown big in the city between the seven mountains.
2023 | New Identum brand
We also built a new website, the one you're looking at right now. Pretty sweet, right? The picture is how we used to look, and a lot of effort went into the new brand identity. We even wrote an article about it!
2023 | Visma buys Identum
In 2023 we were purchased by Visma. It was a big deal, people wrote press releases and stuff. But we are still the same Customer loving IAM nerds from the west coast of Norway, that part hasn't changed.
2022 | 100 eAdm Customers
In 2022 we passed 100 happy eAdm Customers, we also landed our first international eAdm Customer this year.
2021 | Migration to Azure Cloud
A successful migration to Microsoft Azure Cloud was done in 2021. For our Customers this means that our products become faster, more secure and overall better.
2019 | 10 years of profitability
We celebrate 10 years of profitability by launching eAdm, our newest cloud-based solution for the private and public sectors. Identum wins its fifth(!) Gaselle award.
2017 | First international eFeide Customer
Our first international eFeide Customer came in 2017, only a few years after passing 100 eFeide Customers in Norway.
2015 | Over 100 eFeide Customers
The same year where our first eAdm Customers come through the door, eFeide surpasses 100 Customers. Identum receives its first Gaselle award from Dagens Næringsliv.
2012 | From public to private sector
In 2012 we launched our first add-on module, eTime, in our eFeide product. The same year we sign our first Customer in the private sector.
2011 | Both large and small
The fourth largest (Kristiansand) and smallest (Utsira) municipality in Norway becomes eFeide Customers.
2009 | The Identum adventure starts
Identum is founded in September 2009 by Manuel Fraga and Eric Lithun. Before the end of the year our first Customer has signed and eFeide is in production.
More than just a quote?
We say a lot of weird stuff, but some of the things we say are so well formulated that they get to live in eternity here on our website (at least until the webserver crashes). This is one of them...
The IT-department is always the first to know when a new colleague is starting, and the last to know when someone has left the company.
