Infor and Elvenite Expand Cooperation in Nordic Food Industry
Swedish alliance partner to implement Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage based on 11 years of experience with Infor
STOCKHOLM, Sweden — 8 June 2020 — Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today announced it has deepened its collaboration with alliance partner Elvenite. Elvenite will deliver a combination of modern technology and successful, reliable implementations for food producers and the grocery trade in the Nordics based around Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage.
“The collaboration with Infor gives us access to the latest technology. This means we can combine Infor's industry-specific CloudSuite with our knowledge of the food industry's challenges, business and business processes, a combination that is extremely valuable for our customers,” says Mathias Dyberg, CEO of Elvenite.
Infor and Elvenite have worked together since 2009. The in-depth collaboration with Infor is a strategic part of Elvenite's growth plan, with the goal to double turnover in three years. This joint offering has already produced results as when they recently won a tender in Norway together.
“Digitization is a crucial weapon when companies compete in competitive markets, as the food industry does,” says Johan Made, Infor's general manager and executive vice president for north, west and east Europe. “Competition is getting tougher each day and, in the strengthened collaboration with Elvenite, we can help customers in the food industry make smart decisions that strengthen their competitiveness.”
Elvenite was founded in Karlstad in 2007 with a clear focus on the food industry that has won the trust of a number of national and international brands. One of these is Mowi, a world-leading producer of farmed Atlantic salmon and fish products with nearly 15,000 employees in 25 countries.
Pointing to the benefits of the increased cooperation between Infor and Elvenite, Jörn Berg, group IT applications manager at Mowi, said: "This is the best of both worlds. Elvenite has unique knowledge and experience of successful implementations of Infor's products in the food industry. With their help, we have developed a global platform that we can now roll out to all our units around the world. The delivery exceeds our high expectations, both in terms of quality and results.”
Elvenite was founded in 2007 and is driven by the vision to be a leader in the digitization of the food industry and the grocery trade. The company has 75 employees in Karlstad, Stockholm, Oslo and Malmö, and has sales of just over SEK 100 million. Since 2018, Elvenite has been owned by Combined Excellence, a group with a number of specialist companies in IT and digitalization. Read more at www.elvenite.se
