VIIN Story

When Leandros Zeppos and Panos Notas joined forces back in 2010 for a challenging commercial application that required their combined expertise, they little imagined they would soon be collaborating on a much bigger project. At that time, Leandros was managing director of Unison Engineering and Consultants GmbH, and Panos was a core systems architect behind several dominating public administration and banking platforms in Europe. In no time at all, they realized they had a common vision and began an exchange of ideas which inevitably led to the startup of their new brainchild visual intelligence - or viin - in 2014.
