Three questions for Jan Lundin

Three questions for Jan Lundin, CEO of Funka.

What impact does the increased legal requirements for accessibility in Europe have on the market?

It is definitely a big change. The demand from our clients in the public sector is increasing enormously, but also organisations that until now haven’t been covered by the regulations need a lot of support. We see that more and more of the IT companies are certifying themselves, which means that there are many more players around. That helps in driving the market forward. Over time, the demands on accessibility expertise will increase, as our clients become more knowledgeable in the area and place higher demands on deep knowledge in accessibility with their suppliers.

How can the technical development in the field of accessibility help?

We work focused on automating and digitising our cutting-edge areas in analysis, support and training. We believe in being able to serve our customers even better with more automated services and tools. With the help of machine learning, we can sharpen and refine 20 years of experience in the field for the benefit of our clients.

What about the future, what will Funka look like in 2025?

Funka was relevant already 20 years ago when we were founded. We have been constantly involved in pushing development, policy and requirements forward and we will continue doing that. We see that we will be even more relevant in the future as even more digitalisation and new requirements are introduced. Funka's knowledge is in demand in many markets and a broad range of sectors. In 2025, we will offer even more services both within and outside of the EU.
