Novacura continues European expansion to Finland
Tom Bergman, new Managing Director Novacura Finland
GOTHENBURG, October 21, 2016 – Novacura, a leading developer of next-generation Business Process Management solutions and makers of Novacura Flow®, the Enterprise App, announces its expansion to Finland. The new subsidiary, Novacura Finland Oy, will offer consulting and Novacura Flow to IFS Applications customers in Finland. Novacura is a Gold Partner of IFS in the Nordics.
Novacura Finland Oy will be located in the Turku region with plans to expand to Helsinki in the future. Tom Bergman, a seasoned ERP expert, has been recruited as Managing Director and more local recruitments will follow. Tom Bergman’s most recent position was at Nordkalk Oy, a supplier of essential raw materials to various industries, where he oversaw the integration of Novacura Flow with Nordkalk’s existing IFS infrastructure to improve security and compliance reporting functionality.
“In Finland, we have identified a great demand for consulting services where we can support the IFS team. The market also features a multitude of different versions of IFS Applications which complicates upgrading and adding new functionality. Novacura Flow is an elegant solution to this challenge, since it works as a layer on top of IFS and removes much of the time-consuming manual adaptation. I look forward to bring the power of the Enterprise App to more Finnish customers – I have seen what it can do up close”, said Tom Bergman.
Finland is the fifth country where Novacura opens up a subsidiary. Today the company has more than 60 permanent employees and additional dedicated consultants, with offices in Sweden, Poland (opened in 2012), Norway (opened in 2015) and The Netherlands (opened in 2015). In addition, Novacura works with a wide range of local partners, resellers and distributors across the world.
“One of the defining factors of Novacura’s ongoing success is our dedication to work closely with customers in development, to unlock business value and empower their in-house development teams. Every market has its own unique challenges and opportunities and industry expertise is at its strongest when combined with local expertise. Therefore it is a natural step for us to expand our operation into Finland and we expect to continue to expand to new locations moving forward”, said Novacura founder and CEO Johan Melander.
