Wallenstam establishes Innovation Council
Daniel Svartling, IT Manager at Wallenstam, has also been appointed as Innovation Manager in the company. In his role, he will receive support from Wallenstam’s Innovation Council, whose mission is to channel and create new business opportunities for the company.
“Customer needs will steer the work of the innovation team together with insights from a study of future housing, among other things. I am very happy to have been entrusted with the task of driving Wallenstam’s focus on these issues. An entrepreneurial spirit pervades the company and looking ahead I see huge potential to create exciting business opportunities,” says Daniel Svartling, IT Manager and Innovation Manager at Wallenstam.
One of the first tasks initiated by the innovation team is a project in the mobility field. This is already a natural part of Wallenstam’s business through the pools cars in Wallenstam Go, which are supplied by Zipcar in Sweden. The mobility project initiated by the innovation team relates to a pilot study within advanced mobility for tomorrow’s customers.
Apart from the mobility issue, the innovation team is focusing on possible implementation of new technical solutions and digitalization services linked to the smart home and housing of the future.
