Byggessen found the total solution provider for IT that they were looking for in Britt. Anders Berglund believes in the solution:
‘Yes, I believe that it is the future. I believe that a businessman must focus on doing business and leaving the rest to others who are professionals in their area. Even if it costs a little extra, I know you save money over time.’
Anders Berglund would like to share another piece of advice, that a businessman should attempt to adapt their organisation to one of the more well-known standards rather than the opposite:
‘The more special solutions you have to add, the more adaptations that are required and the more there is that can go wrong. If you can follow a generally known standard instead, it makes for an easy transition.
Naturally, you are met with scepticism from various parts of the organisation when you replace an entire IT platform all at once. But at Byggessen they are convinced that the advantages still outweigh the disadvantages when the pieces fall into place over time. Anders Berglund believes that many companies have a lot to gain by changing their IT approach. Not only economically.
‘With the change to the new platform, whole new world has opened up for everyone who works for us. You see much more of your project – and we manage to take corrective actions to a much greater extent than previously if something is headed in the wrong direction.’
