About Us

Great things happen in unexpected ways

Paliscope’s next-gen software unites data from various online and offline sources to help investigators discover relevant information and turn it into actionable intelligence. Serving as one place to locate, collect, organize and present case information, the software platform makes piles of data instantly more accessible and useful. And, ultimately, helps investigators close more cases in less time.

As part of Safer Society Group, we have been building tech solutions to help discover, investigate and solve online crime since 2003. Our experience of working with both law enforcement and multinational businesses made us realized that there was a growing demand and need for an online investigation software. As entrepreneurs, designers, techies and developers we thought “problems are there to be solved”. And in March 2018 Paliscope was born. Paliscope Discovry is now used by law enforcement agencies as well as other types organizations around the world working with discovering and investigating crimes online.

Our neighborhood

The Paliscope office is located in the centre of Gothenburg. More specifically close to Järntorget. This neighbourhood offers a relaxed atmosphere with many popular restaurants and is recognized as the coolest in Europe by The Guardian Newspaper. So when visiting us, take an extra day to hang out with us and in our neighborhood!

Why Paliscope?

A story of how an unwanted change at the last minute can turn out just right. We realize we will get asked about the name Paliscope. So here it is: No reason. No connection. Just Paliscope.

When we first started looking at names for our new tech company we wanted to use our Swedish origins, and after rejecting oodles of names came up with the Swedish word for “The Lighthouse”: “Fyren”. We liked both the word and the association to a searchlight, but changed the “f” to “ph” to give it a more international touch.All looked clear to move ahead with the name, and as the process moved forward we created the graphic profile with logo and colors. That’s when we got the notification from our patent firm, about a problem in the US. PhyreEngine – a free game engine from Sony used in more than 200 game titles. Too similar. Start over.However, we now really liked the design concept that we had. We wanted to keep it. That meant we needed a new name that had to start with a “P”. We ended up with Paliscope. We just like it. No reason. No connection. Just Paliscope.
