– Our consultants are continuously working on assignments at project oriented companies and organisations both in the private and public sector. By using the IT-operation solution from TeleComputing, delivered from a centralized platform, both our consultants and other employees have flexible access to our applications, documents and other files regardless of where and when they work. This means that they can spend even more time and resources helping our customers. TeleComputing has considerable experience with such IT solutions and this was also an important consideration when making our decision, says Klaus Lauritsen, CFO in Metier. Metier was established in Norway in 1982, at the time as a company selling project management software to the Norwegian oil industry. The company has since maintained its focus on projects, but has gone through a considerable change and development transformation.

Metier operates throughout Scandinavia with offices in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen. - We are proud that Metier has chosen TeleComputing as their IT-operation partner. We see this as yet another confirmation that our centralized IT-operation solutions meet the market requirements for cost efficiency, availability and security. By using our IT services delivered from our centralized IT-platform, Metier will also be able to adjust their IT costs in accordance with their actual needs, says Sven Tore Kaasa, CEO in TeleComputing.
