CheckProof, a Swedish SaaS company, is thrilled to announce a significant investment and long-term partnership with Viking Venture, the leading Nordic B2B software investor.

CheckProof provides a user-friendly, all-in-one platform for the construction materials industry. The platform digitizes Maintenance & HSEQ Management with tasks including quality and maintenance routines, defects, deviation, and incident reporting.
Connecting frontline operations directly to the office creates an immediate positive impact on availability and productivity.

CheckProof’s intuitive platform enables efficient reporting as information can be collected from multiple teams and sites making it accessible from one single place. Increasing visibility and eliminating the need for disparate systems. This data-driven approach enhances uptime by enabling preventative maintenance and significantly reducing administrative workload, all while ensuring on-site personnel safety.

Viking Venture will be a long-term partner, supporting CheckProof in its ambitious growth plans across North America and Europe. Viking Venture will join Granitor Growth Management AB as a lead shareholder in CheckProof.

Since then, CheckProof has achieved remarkable growth, with its suite of digital tools for Maintenance and HSEQ Management being adopted by leading global companies in the construction materials industry. With a commitment to innovation and excellence, CheckProof serves a client base in over 38 countries, with thousands of users, and continues to expand its global footprint.
