At Emblasoft, we are passionate about building software products that enable our clients to innovate and drive the evolution of the communications industry. Although we’re a new name, our heritage spans more than 35 years of experience, built under the Polystar brand.

We changed our name to Emblasoft following our divestiture of Polystar OSIX to Elisa in 2019.

Our HQ is located in Stockholm, Sweden, reflecting our long history.
