ARE YOU READY TO DITCH BIG TECH?
For technology users like you who are upset and won’t take it anymore, we have created the open-source Friend Operating System or Friend OS, which uses Internet and blockchain technologies to offer all the features of a commercial OS, but one that you can access anytime, anywhere, no matter what hardware you use… outside the grasp of Big Tech corporations.
The user experience feels like Windows, Chrome OS, Android, macOS or iOS. But you don’t need to choose a specific hardware platform or proprietary software packages. If your device is connected to the Internet, you can use the Friend OS.

Create your own secure computing platform that fits your business needs without locking you into specific hardware or software. Choose Friend.
Unlike Big Tech which wants to dictate your computing experience Friend gives you the freedom to choose what software goes into your own platform. And you can access it anywhere, on any device.
COST CENTERS, GOVERNMENTS AND MUNICIPALITIES
You need to shift resources or migrate your IT infrastructure to the cloud while maximizing your return on IT investments. But you’re stuck with the restrictions of long-term vendor entanglements?
The Friend OS lets you transition to the cloud without the need to rip-and-replace legacy systems. It reduces your exposure to expensive renewal cycles of large vendors and gives you complete control over your company data.
FREELANCERS IN THE GIG ECONOMY
You stay independent because you demand autonomy over where you live and work. And you want control over all your personal and business data, without the fear of hackers or security breaches.
The Friend OS lets you create a personalized virtual desktop—using whatever software you want—on a secure web-based environment accessed through a single sign on from anywhere, anytime and on any device regardless of your hardware.
Tired of giving Big Tech platforms a cut of your revenue? Looking to get involved in the next big paradigm shift? Join the Friend community of developers.
Quickly create apps for the cloud on the Friend OS with the advantages of native development and generate income from those apps through the Friend Store. Unlike “Big Tech” development environments Friend lets you keep 100% of the revenue you generate from apps and services you sell freeing you from existing development restrictions (e.g. libraries, massive SDK’s).
ADVISORY FIRMS AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES ORGANIZATIONS
Create a new offering that increases the value your firm delivers to its clients, increases operating margins and differentiates you from the competition. And lets you do it in a rapid scalable fashion.
Too good to be true? Not when you work with Friend. Friend lets you deploy technology solutions at a fraction of the time and cost without having to specialize in any platform.
Validé – The challenge
Validé needed a classroom and conference solution in digital format.
Friend gave us the Solution.
Validé now uses Friend’s classroom and conference solution to run the ITSA Start accelerator program in digital format.
We are very pleased with the solution. Friend conference is simple, secure and easy to use. We have 11 companies with us and run a total of 33 lectures and workshops through Friend during a 12 week period.
The solution has the tools we need to create a complete program for our participants with chat, hands-on, easy screen sharing and presentations, good overview of participants and guests, easy audio and camera control, and the ability to chat privately.
It is easy to create digital classrooms and easy for participants and guests to connect through the submitted link.

Doorman – The challenge
Doorman AS is a Norwegian security company with many employees and many projects and localities where each week is different from the last. We have previously used various solutions for guard list management, reporting, communication and calculation of payroll and invoice. This was inconvenient and time consuming.
Friend Collaborative Workspace gave us the Solution with an App for iOS and Android.
Friend helped us access all of our applications and localities into one common workspace, where we can both keep track of assignments, guard lists and reporting. The system enables us to easily share and update documents so that we can dynamically create salaries and invoicing.
Friend Chat, similar to Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp, is also integrated with the system and gives the employee automatic messages if there are changes in the schedule / holidays etc. in addition to serving as our primary communication system.
All of the above was implemented without having to install any application onto any of the employee or client devices!

Scala4 – The challenge
Scala4 needed to consolidate a Sales, Marketing and Support team who were delivering Modernisation Solutions to organisations across several countries (UK, Nordic, USA, Italy, Spain, Portugal etc).
The first problem was that our employees had multiple types of PC, laptop, tablet and phones, using Microsoft Office, Office365, Onedrive, Google drive, Skype, Zoom, Teams, etc. and 2 different mail servers.
The second problem was running legacy modernisation projects and trying to bring multiple tools and applications together e.g. Assessment/artefact collection, POC, Sandbox, on premise and/or cloud application roll out!
Due to the expansion of the team and the issues integrating the various applications/systems Scala4 needed to find a flexible integrated solution for their whole team and projects!
Friend gave us the Solution.
We standardized by adopting a single Friend Workspace and a common set of tools, available to all employees and client project participants. This enabled us to remove all applications from client devices and implement a 100% cloud based office!
Friend Office was used for documents, spreadsheets and presentations, implementing transparent sharing and multi user editing, automatic archiving and version control.
Friend Chat/Conference was used for all secure confidential person to person (peer to peer) conference calls and multi user internal and public presentations and conferences.
Friend Server enabled us to coordinate and control our LInux and Windows based tools and applications!
