Creating a niche market leader in plagiarism prevention

Ouriginal is a fast growing niche leader in plagiarism prevention and detection software. The company is based in Stockholm, with offices in Cologne and Saint Louis, and offers a subscription-based cloud solution that targets primarily academic institutions, secondary schools and corporations who seek an advanced digital tool to help assure originality, prevent unreferenced or unauthorized used on content and to improve the quality of documents. Today, Ouriginal is the market leader in the Nordics and holds a diverse and growing global customer base.

PCI VI invested in Ouriginal, previously named Urkund, in 2018 with the ambition to support the company in an accelerated growth journey; improve and expand customer offering, invest in technology, enter new markets, and further build and develop the international service organization. German competitor PlagScan was acquired in 2019 and in September 2020 the two companies, Urkund and PlagScan, joined forces under the new name “Ouriginal”.
