Major contract with Norwegian Tax Administration

One of Proact’s biggest contracts in the bagProact has secured a major contract with the Norwegian Tax Administration. Data centre supplier Proact will be ensuring further development, via a four-year framework agreement, of the solution platform supplied by the same company last year.

Proact has signed one of the biggest contracts ever with the Norwegian Tax Administration. This four-year framework agreement comes as a result of a major solution contract last year.

In 2014, Proact supplied a new platform to the Norwegian Tax Administration based on the converged infrastructure. This choice of platform will ensure that the Norwegian Tax Administration can meet demands for development of new services such as A-meldingen (an electronic form for reporting income and employment circumstances).

“The Norwegian Tax Administration has selected a platform which, in our experience, gives good results on the performance side of things while also offering extremely good flexibility when developing new services,” says Thomas Kronen, Managing Director of Proact Norway.

One of the very biggest

“This is one of the very biggest contracts we have concluded in the Norwegian market. It is particularly pleasing to see the continued trust which the Norwegian Tax Administration places in us. Converged infrastructure will provide a good foundation for future IT projects and service rollout at the Norwegian Tax Administration, says Tone Håfjeld, Director of Marketing and Sales at Proact Norway.

Over the past few years, Proact has been investing heavily in integrated data centre supplies and development of complete ranges of services. Converged infrastructure helps to optimise hardware performance while also providing better options for efficient administration and automation.

“We are extremely pleased with developments to date. It is clear that the demand for our services and solutions in the Norwegian market is growing. Evidently, market players are wanting to reduce their administration and maintenance costs associated with operation, and customers are looking to service deliveries or converged infrastructure. Net sales were up by nine per cent in the first six months of the year,” says Håfjeld.

International award

This autumn, the Norwegian Tax Administration won an international award for the new business architecture, in the public sector category. The judges highlighted the initiative implemented by the Norwegian Tax Administration to make things easier for users – everything from new targets which were set in 2010 to completion of the new architecture in 2025. This award was presented by international advisory company iCMG.
