Digitalisation is completely changing business, industry and the public sector in Sweden. In order to be a proactive partner that creates significant value for its customers throughout this change process, EVRY and NetRelations have decided to come together.
Thanks to their shared specialist expertise, EVRY and NetRelations will be able to take full responsibility for customers’ digital transformations, not only at the strategic level, but also at the tactical and operational levels.
EVRY and NetRelations will have a total of over 400 committed employees with specialist expertise in business development, strategy, experience design and project management as well as strong expertise in technology, which will allow them to optimally implement solutions for customers.
“NetRelations is passionate about creating digital solutions with a good user interface that create measurable benefits for customers. Together with EVRY, we become one of the leading players in Sweden. We will be strongly focused on innovation and development, and through long-term partnership will ensure that our customers achieve successful digital transformations”, comments Kenneth Karlsson, CEO of NetRelations.
EVRY’s digital focus has accelerated quickly under its new owners and new management. Through strategic partnerships with global cloud providers and the creation of the EVRY Strategic Design Lab, the company has taken a big leap forwards in terms of its transformation. Its acquisition of NetRelations will strengthen its expertise and enable it to continue to deliver business value to its customers.
“Working together gives EVRY and NetRelations an entirely new ability to get things done. We become a leader in the digital area, which is of strategic importance to our customers. We will increasingly be associated with providing innovative services that create significant value. We also gain a dedicated team of skilled employees that will work proactively in collaboration with our customers”, comments Fredrik Almén, EVP for EVRY Sweden.
Industry 4.0 is changing society
The digital transformation is an important step for companies looking for advantages in a highly-competitive market. Digitalisation is consequently an increasingly important topic on managers’ agendas.
Consumers are spending increasing amounts of time researching products on the internet before making a purchase, and so less time on traditional shop visits. Ecommerce is becoming the dominant channel for all sales to consumers and business customers. This means that the digital relationships companies have with their customers need to become stronger, more interactive and better integrated with the physical dimension.
Both NetRelations and EVRY have over many years created targeted commercial solutions and services such as websites, ecommerce solutions, intranets and mobile solutions. By combining their forces, EVRY and NetRelations become one of the largest partners for market-leading solutions including Episerver, Microsoft, Celum and Inriver.
EVRY Sverige AB will own all the shares in NetRelations of Scandinavia AB with effect from 1 November 2016. NetRelations will continue to be an independent company with Kenneth Karlsson as CEO and Jan Kjellberg as Executive Vice President for Corporate Development.
