Business Values

During the enduring course of participating in a business, making decisions isn’t always easy. Being aided by some rough guidance that sets our business values and general orientation for everyone in the company, is leading us into a sustainable and successful future oriented path. Hence, we are setting forth the following values that we will generally try to achieve. Even if we might not always fully succeed, we are doing our best to apply these:

  • We all share an interest in having society benefit from open collaboration by fostering free software, open source and open content.
  • We strive for being a people company, by putting people (i.e. customers, employees and society) first.
  • We provide working time flexibility within operational limits and great work place flexibility.
  • We strive for fun within our work and keep motivation for our particular business model.
  • We strive for quality and sustainability in our work, since we want to convince our customers and have them come back.
  • We strive for open communication and timely responses, internally and externally, including honest and accurate reports.
  • We support activities to share our values, even beyond our company, e.g. through presenting at conferences, publishing or sponsoring.
  • To mitigate negative effects of our business, we try to dedicate 10% annual revenue to society or environmental causes.

What is the meaning of Lanedo?

The meaning of the name is related to the creation of our name. When we founded Lanedo, we intended to find a name that would support what we believe in and reveal:

  • Our involvement and love for Linux.
  • Our deep rooting and Networking in the free and open source communities.
  • Our passion for software Development.
  • The open spirit we inherited from our former company.

From L+N+D we came up with an attractive name vaguely resembling our roots with the Imendio name.
