Can you tell us what your organisation does?
Seravo is a Nordic cloud hosting company aimed at all WordPress solutions from company sites to online stores, blogs and digital publications. We offer WordPress as a service: we take care of performance, updates and security. We provide an out-of-the-box optimized WordPress and all the tools developers love (Git, WP-CLI, Composer, Gulp etc). For digital and advertising agencies we have good partnership opportunities.
How does WordPress affect your business?
Seravo as a company has a strong background in open source and Linux. When many of our clients started to have similar needs regarding WordPress upkeep, we created a service around it. By offering WordPress as a service we can provide all our customers well maintained sites for an affordable price. We want to offer our customers the best possible WordPress experience and make the world’s most popular content management system safer, faster and more flexible. We are passionate about WordPress and have participated in its development process by being an active member of the WordPress community both in Finland and abroad. Our staff has also contributed code to WordPress core, made translations and we’ve published multiple plugins as open source at WordPress.org. For more check out our GitHub account.
How can WordCamp Stockholm and its attendees help the Swedish WordPress community?
WordCamps are great opportunities to meet like-minded WordPress people, to learn and share ideas as well as get new business opportunities. WordCamp Stockholm will hopefully make the voice of the Swedish WordPress community heard even louder!
Where do you think WordPress is and where does it fit in 5 years from now?
We believe that in the coming years, WordPress will remain as the number one choice of content management systems. It will also be the base for even more complex websites, for global online stores and even app development thanks to the WP API. It is clear that WordPress is a credible choice for enterprise scale solutions as well as for public sector. Our job is to keep our WordPress sites running whatever happens. Being obsessed by quality and security, we are especially proud of our system of tested updates which has made the lives of our customers a lot easier.
What opportunities are you hoping for at this WordCamp?
Seravo has proven to be a great success in Finland growing by 10% every month. Now we are going international. By participating in WordCamp Stockholm we wish to get in contact with fellow Nordic WordPress makers, get a view on the Swedish web development market and of course also learn more about the latest trends and features in WordPress. We are especially hoping to meet Swedish digital agencies and show how we could help them in their daily work. We are looking forward to seeing you all at the sponsor stand – meanwhile you can follow @Seravocom on Twitter and visit Seravo.com to get a deeper insight of our services.
