Timezynk started in 2010 with a vision to radically simplify time reporting and scheduling for our customers. The idea was born when an employee at one of the founders staffing company handed in a time report written on a torn-off piece of plasterboard, since the paper form had been destroyed in the rain.
We now have a platform where our customers do most of their daily work and planning, handling everything from employee schedules, timereports, absence, payroll calculations, invoice calculations, time clock, orders and quotes.
Our values are Collaboration, Openness, Trust, Diversity

The two founders Ulf Jönsson and Johan Heander starts working on the prototype of the first Timezynk app and travel around Sweden showing it to some of the biggest staffing companies that all confirm that they have the same problem: Employees don’t really know when and where they are supposed to work and getting the timereports back and into the payroll and invoicing systems takes a lot of time and manual work.
Johan Heander quits their job at Ericsson and founds Timezynk together with Ulf Jönsson on January 1st 2010. A month later the company is accepted into Ideon Innovation startup incubator program in Lund and moves into the same legendary office space where the mobile radio department of Ericsson was once founded. In April 2010 we place 2nd in the nation wide business plan competition Venture Cup, winning a cash prize and also securing our first round of financing with investors from some of Swedens largest corporations.
The team grows to 4 people and the first product is launched: A mobile application for iOS, Android and J2ME (!) that connects the customers enterprise scheduling software with their employees so that everyone has the latest schedule and can quickly and easily report their working time.
Graduates from Ideon Innovation startup incubator and moves company office to Malmö.
After hearing a lot of feedback on how difficult to use, expensive and slow the enterprise schedule softwares are that our customers are using, while also facing difficulties explaining and setting price for an add-on product the company pivots into selling a complete scheduling platform. The mockup scheduling system we have been using for product demos is refactored and improved to become the main product, and the mobile app becomes just one integral part of the offering.
The first customer, Malmö City Municipality, for the new complete scheduling product is onboarded in September 2013.
Version 2 of the scheduling platform is launched containing the first version of the order module and thereby taking the first steps towards full collaboration between different companies within Timezynk.
Version 3 of the product sees the introduction of our super flexible registry system, making it possible to adapt Timezynk to different needs and organizations easily and without writing any specialized code. This creates inflow of customers from many different industries where the traditional solutions were too inflexible to work well.
Substantial growth in customer driven projects, now making up over 30% of annual turnover. First fully remote employee hired. Work begins with the RFQ module to enable easy collaboration between suppliers and clients that all use the Timezynk platform.
After two really strong months and the start of one of the largest customer driven projects in Timezynks history our customers are hit hard by the pandemic because of our wide customer base in the service sectors. Team members working in the Malmö office start to also work remotely to reduce the risk of infection.
The company makes the decision to go Full-Remote and this handbook is created to support the process. Re-organization with dedicated Marketing manager, Product owner and Tech Lead.
Investments in internationalization and in the order and RFQ modules to work towards our BHAG of creating a marketplace.
