Our history began in 2017 with the idea of BirdieEyes, an app for golf players. But the roots of Frontbyte date back to 1997, when the company’s owners established their first IT business project in Norway. They are also the team behind SEMINE, one of Norway’s fastest-growing start-ups.
The original company in Norway attracted attention of Norway’s information and communications technology (ICT) executives and enterprises, and gained notoriety as an exemplary tech business. It was acquired by Kongsberg Gruppen in 2012.
In 2017, Frontbyte became a separate entity and started working on with BirdieEyes. Since then, the company has grown to include 40 senior-level professionals in four locations, offering bespoke software to its clients. While working mostly with Norwegian customers, Frontbyte plans to expand its services to other countries, and our business model supports and encourages this growth.
Frontbyte has worked on a number of notable projects, including UpSport, Ocean, Unifon, and SEMINE. The company operates under strong Norwegian ownership that includes Northence AS (Robert Kristiansen), Paradox Invest AS (Thore Berthelsen), Blue AS (Jan Høgetveit), KGI AS (Arild Karlsen), GiS Holding (Jørgen Gismervik), and JRM Holding AS (Josef Schlezinger).
