Our values and code of conduct as a team.
Passion and excitement over technological changes and challenges
We delight in the entire journey of finding a solution for hitherto unknown and challenging technological issues.
This is the identity of FingerVision.
Our confidence and pride derive from the fact that we are a passionate group who delve deeply into technical issues and explore the full range of possibilities from all angles until we find the optimal way to generate a new value. We are always trailblazers.
Impact on society through collaboration and orchestration
Bringing innovation in society requires a vision shared not only in-house but also by other business partners, clients and government organizations.
With such like-minded people, we fully intend to generate new values and sustainable win-win business partnerships in which all parties involved benefit.
Our business is not simply envisioning or voicing ideas; the real significance of our existence is to implement them into practice and bring about results. We are determined and tenacious in following our business and development activities to the end despite any challenges we meet along the way.
We focus on what is important and where it is required, and to this end, we do not insist on sticking to only our own technology, but rather combining it with other technology when necessary.
Leading with integrity, be authentic
Our strength comes from the culture where each member thinks, considers and takes actions autonomously. The root of this culture is authenticity.
What we do must be something to be proud of and pleasurable to share with somebody we love; we do such a job.
