KOMFO


We are a Danish company with an international orientation. We make it easier for companies to use Facebook as a professional tool. We believe that the use of Facebook creates increased trust towards the company on the part of the user, which has a direct and measurable effect on the bottom line in the form of increased customer loyalty, more repeat sales and new customers through friends’ recommendations. Komfo was founded in Copenhagen in 2007 by four entrepreneurs from the IT and business world. Komfo’s headquarters is in Copenhagen, although most of its employees are nowadays located outside Denmark. From the start, Komfo has focused on serving companies in their professional use of Facebook, and the company now possesses a number of technological and creative tools which can be licensed and offered to a broad range of customers.


Our vision
We are often asked why we focus exclusively on Facebook. The answer is simple − we believe that as a network, Facebook is and will continue to be of crucial importance in the development of the Internet. Facebook is the primary driver in giving Internet users a face and influence − influence that is being used to confront businesses, the authorities and other decision-makers with the customers, employees, citizens and others towards whom they have a responsibility. This development creates both huge opportunities and challenges for all parties, and it is here that we wish to contribute our expertise.
