Founding of Setza
In 2015, Roger Meier and Patrick Terreaux met during an academic MBA programme at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. The problem with meeting rooms came up in a discussion, whereupon they decided to develop a wireless solution to fix it.
ETH Zurich, our first customer
The two engineers presented the pilot project to ETH Zurich, which was looking for a solution to manage the 500 rooms on campus. A major point that made the difference was the wireless aspect of the ROOMZ screens, which allowed them to be installed without damaging the buildings.
In 2017, Fabien Moine joined the team as sales manager, the first screens were marketed on the Swiss market and Setza took this opportunity to give itself a new graphic identity and a new name: ROOMZ
