Monitor’s move into Norway makes the grade
In the fall of 2020, at the height of the Corona pandemic, Monitor ERP System set up a subsidiary in Norway, with headquarters based in Oslo. The aim was to come closer to Norwegian customers both new and old, to ensure they could more easily get help from both sales representatives and consultants. The venture has exceeded expectations, and in spite of the pandemic there has been high demand for Monitor’s products and services among Norwegian customers.
“Right from the start we’ve grown more convinced it was the right move to make, especially now that we can see the scale and power of the Norwegian manufacturing industry. Norway is home to a really wide range of companies, spanning electronics, furniture production and mechanical manufacturing, which are somewhat overshadowed by the oil industry,” explains Jonas Persson, Director of Business Development and CEO of the Norwegian subsidiary.
Several large-scale MONITOR implementation projects are under way at a number of well-known Norwegian industrial companies.
“It feels really great every time we see a new customer become more efficient because they chose MONITOR’s ERP system,” Jonas adds.
There are now three consultants and two sales representatives based in Norway. The next step is to recruit an additional consultant who will specialize in finance. We’re planning a road trip in the fall of 2021, during which we’ll visit sites throughout Norway, focusing on Industry 4.0 and MONITOR G5.
