We are MultiTaction. We design collaborative multi-touch hardware and software solutions to improve the way the world works
We were founded in 2007 by a group of research scientists that were studying advanced user interfaces at the Helsinki Institute of Information Technology. They developed a unique piece of touch tracking technology but after exhaustive testing discovered there was no commercially available hardware that could keep up with it … so they invented one!
That was our first generation touch screen and to prove the technology we installed it in a public place and recorded people’ s reactions and interactions. Sharing this online generated such an avalanche of feedback and commercial interest that we formed the company now known as MultiTaction. In case you were wondering, ‘taction’ is Latin for touch.
Over the course of ten years we have grown from a small office in Helsinki to a global business. We now have R&D centres in Finland and the UK, manufacturing in Europe and America, showrooms in Singapore, California, Chicago, New York, Helsinki and London. Along the way we have continued to innovate:
And we continue to innovate. As we move forward, we are evolving into a leading developer of advanced visualization and collaboration software. Proof of this is the recent announcement of the ground-breaking MT Canvus Connect visual collaboration software that makes it possible for remote users to share, manipulate, draw and input information in real-time wherever they are based
We may evolve but our commitment to helping our technology-users transform data into tangible assets never wavers: whether it be generating insights from big data, enabling greater engagement, or increasing socialisiation. We are inventing #the future of work and putting people in touch with the big picture!
