We are now looking for funding to enable our expansion plans and to expand our owner base in preparation for the coming IPO.

The problem this product solves
Today real-estate companies, municipality and large organizations end up with many different access control systems. This creates a lot of extra management and difficulties keeping the systems according to GDPR which can end in fines of millions of Euros.
When rescue services like firemen in an emergency need access to a building they might not have the key. This delays the rescue operation and valuable time is lost. Time saves life!
How the product solves it
Our service gives the user one interface that controls all access control systems, meaning that the user only needs to work in one place to update all systems.
By using our service both the new and old access control systems becomes GDPR compliant and collected in the same place. This saves our customers time, money and worry.
We are developing a service with SOS Alarm to give the rescue services digital keys to gain direct access in case of emergency. Watch the video here!
We focus on making everything easy and GDPR compliant for the user.
Our service comes with smart functions enabling the access control systems to do new things, like using your calendar to book a car from a car pool or meeting rooms.
Together with SOS Alarm (Swedish state 112 service) we are developing a service giving the fire departments access to buildings when the fire alarm goes off.This way they can skip the physical key which increases the convince and security: RescueServiceVideo
We build this with blockchain technology to create verifiable transparency and increase the level of security.
Product use cases
Any time a tenant, sub contractor or employee needs access to a building they need to have an access tag. One of the facility managers tasks is to create that tag and give it the correct access.
This is easily done with our service which then automatically sends the correct information to all the different access control systems that are involved and gives the person access.
Are you the tenant?
Why bother going down to the laundry room to book when you can do it on your phone?

Our customers are organizations that have access control systems. This includes real-estate companies, industris, university's, municipality, hospitals and everything in between.
Our subscription base of half a million is growing with 50% per year and we have an order book with 200.000 subscriptions that we are to deliver.
The Swedish market is estimated to four million digital keys and when we have delivered on our current order book we will have 20 % of the digital keys in Sweden, in our system. In Europe we estimate the market of two hundred million digital keys.
In our niche the competitors are still few. The competition we face is mostly from a supplier whose system supports their own access control system and sometimes a few others, lacking the width of our service support of many different access control brands and instead focusing on video and alarm handling instead. Some competition also comes from system that focus on identity management and in that process also have some access control management. We have not encountered any competitor with the width of brand support och functionality that has specialized on the access control part.
Unique differentiator from competitors
Our service has integrated more access control brands with more functionality than any competitor. Our focus is doing the access control part well developed and making it easy for the customer while other systems focus on alarm management or identity management. With our open API our customers and partners can make integrations and use the data we collect from the access control systems and to control them. This has resulted in applications ranging from using an app to open the door, to using the access card to pay for lunch with automatic deduction on the salary.
Company revenue streams
Our primary revenue stream comes from our subscription base where we charge our customers a monthly fee for every digital key they use in our service. We have auxiliary revenue from start and configuration fees when we import access control databases for customers and professional services in our support.
Our direct sales account for the largest turnover in Sweden. We have started working with partners and development for online sales. The expansion in Europe will be through online-driven sales and through a network of retailers and partners.

In 2019, together with SOS Alarm, we are planing to launch a product for the rescue service based on blockchain technology that gives them digital keys to gain direct access to the buildings they need in case of emergency.
When the company was funded 1 million SEK was invested and seven years later another half a million was raised internally. During the last year we have raised 4 million SEK to finance an increased rate of development and expansion.
We work closely with access control system manufacturers in order to make sure our service and their systems works well together.
New re-seller partnerships is a part of the strategy to expand in Europe.
Use of funds
The capital will be used for:
1. Expansion in the EU with our core offer.
2. Development with the Swedish rescue service that will give the emergency services access to buildings with access control when an alarm is raised.
3. Sales and marketing in Sweden.
2016 the financial newspaper "Dagens Industri" awarded us the "Di Gasell" award for promising growth companies.
The evaluation of the company is based on our current subscription base of over half a million subscriptions. We aim to take the company public once we have delivered on our current order book and reached about six-hundred thousand to three quarters of a million subscriptions which should be done in the mid 2019
We expect a 40 % higher valuation due to the increase in subscription base and revenue streams from now until then. We are a growth company and will focus to increase our market penetration and subscription base the coming years and with that, our market cap.
- We risk reaching a full market share in Sweden in which case our growth rate would decline. In order to keep our growth rate and even increase it we need to expand into new geographic markets.
- If key employees would disappear that could hamper our growth. All employees took the opportunity to buy shares in a public offer and are now financially invested in the success of Amido.
- Future product releases may take longer time to develop and sell than planed.
- Future standardization in the access control market might make it easier for new competitors to make integrations.
