“I am looking forward to start working for Consafe Logistics”, Bård comments.
“It’s an incredibly exciting and innovative company – market leaders and with a lot of committed colleagues – and I am looking forward to contribute to the company with my knowledge and experience. That we already have 500 installations speaks volumes.”

There are big differences when it comes to how far along Norwegian companies are in their digital transformation, even among the largest companies. There is a lot of untapped potential waiting to be realized.

It is also about “eat or be eaten”. We now see huge global actors making their entrance In the Nordics. Companies that are stuck with old technology are facing a very tough future. Those companies that choose agile technology have increased shareholder value, better profitability, faster growth, and maybe more importantly they attract the best people in the business.

Customers needs and structure of the markets are changing ever faster. That is why one must have an IT-platform that can change just as fast. Companies that have the best understanding of their customers needs, and that adapts to new needs and business models the fastest, wins the market.”

Bård is strongly motivated to join the team and continue the growth journey that we are on. Join us in welcoming Bård to the team.
