Enfo acquires Framsteg AB – becomes one of the leading companies within BI in Sweden
Enfo Sweden acquires Framsteg AB and becomes one of Sweden’s leading companies within business intelligence and a market leader within Service and Asset Management. The acquisition is included in Enfo’s strategy to take care of IT support and IT solutions to help customers focus on their core business.
Enfo Sweden’s subsidiary Enfo Pointer is currently among the country’s leading consulting companies within Business Intelligence. Through the acquisition of Framsteg the business is strengthened further. The goal is to be number one in Sweden. The new business unit Enfo Framsteg will take a leading position within Service and Asset Management (maintenance systems).
“We see great opportunities for co-operation between both companies. Framsteg’s specialist competence within QlikView together with Enfo Pointer’s deep knowledge within Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence, gives a resource-strong and complete organisation within Business Intelligence that can offer the customer a complete solution. Framsteg’s expertise within IBM Maximo, which is the leading system support for Service and Asset Management, means that Enfo Framsteg can also offer completely new services within maintenance systems. This fits in well with Enfo’s strategy of helping customers to focus on their core business,” says Lars Aabol, Executive Vice President Enfo Sweden.
“Business intelligence is a strategically very interesting area. Together with Framsteg we will be able to offer customers a more complete range of services, including broader and deeper Application Management services. We now strengthen our position as a supplier-independent IT consultancy that can offer complete solutions within business intelligence,” says Åsa Landén Ericsson, MD Enfo Pointer.
Framsteg has for the past two years been elected as the Partner of the Year for QlikView in Sweden and designated as the largest partner for IBM Maximo. The company currently has approximately 50 employees who are all staying in the company.
“We look very positively on the merger as Enfo’s and Framsteg´s portfolios complement each other in an excellent way. It will make further development of our strategy to be the most attractive consultancy company within Service and Asset Management possible. The acquisition also involves greater opportunities for development for many of our employees and also for our customers,” says Mats Eliasson, MD Framsteg AB.
