"The Innofactor consultants have what I call a leading position in cloud solutions"
Head of IT Delivery
Felleskjøpet Agri is the Norwegian agricultural cooperative. They are a retailer of agricultural operating equipment, animal food and seeds as well as a wholesaler of grains.
"The Innofactor consultants have what I call a leading position in cloud solutions," says Head of IT delivery at Felleskjøpet Agri, Fredrik Almstrøm. "Their consultants assist my team and me in transforming our standard operating model to a cloud-based platform. This is strategically important to our organization. The faster we have this in place, the better savings we will be able to realize."
Over the past four years, Felleskjøpet Agri has had a close working relationship with three to four consultants at Innofactor.
In 1896, Felleskjøpet Agri was founded on the simple idea that a common procurement process secures better financial terms for its owners – 44,000 farmers. This basic idea has not changed. With a multitude of partners, consultants and customers, Felleskjøpet Agri has tough requirements for its IT-solutions: Everybody needs to be able to speak to each other.
"Everything IT does supports the organization's transcendent strategy," says Almstrøm. "Because of stringent requirements for collaboration, the IT steering model is of utmost importance. We must have efficient, seamless IT-solutions. For this important work, I, among others, lean on the expertise of the Innofactor consultants."
"I am very satisfied with the Innofactor professionals," says Almstrøm. "They are both smart and easy to talk to. When we encounter challenges in the projects, the Innofactor consultants, with their high quality and competencies, provide confidence and security which ensures that we understand what needs to be done. The consultants from Innofactor verify that these important steps are carried out correctly. They understand our business and they know that this is simply IT. They are business-minded and not afraid to be explicit on what and where we could improve. Our co-operation is a long-term partnership."
