It is a great pleasure to announce our recently concluded collaboration with Finnut Consult AS in Norway.
Finnut runs the municipal shopping community The Purchasing Circle for 14 municipalities in Norway, and helps with the negotiation of agreements, tenders and advice. The same benefits are also offered to private companies.
“Through the collaboration with Tricom, we have the opportunity to support the entire procurement process,” says Finnut general manager Bjørnar Pedersen, and continues: “We negotiate good agreements and at the same time offer an effective tool to use the agreements and ensure better processes – not only in the purchasing phase, but also in handling the invoices from the suppliers ”.
Initially, the goal is to roll out Tricom’s solutions to the municipalities in the Shopping Circle, but several municipalities have already shown interest and are on their way to join the collaboration.
“We are very pleased with the collaboration with FinnUt,” says COO of Tricom, Thue B. Kjelstrøm. “It’s a perfect match with great synergy – Finnut negotiates the best deals and we deliver the system that supports Finnut’s work. We have great expectations for the cooperation and look forward to welcoming many customers in both the private and public sectors in Norway. ”
The collaboration with FinnUt is the latest in a series of initiatives in Norway. Tricom has been approved by DIFI as a supplier of systems for utilizing the central procurement centers’ joint agreements, has recently established an office close to Oslo and participates in several procurements and sales processes.
