Posten Norge is a Nordic mail and logistics group that develops and delivers complete solutions within the postal services, communications, and logistics industry, with the Nordic area as its local market. With a vision to become the world’s most future-oriented mail and logistics group, Posten Norge’s strategy is to develop an integrated and industrialized Nordic mail and logistics business. Therefore, its expectation from IT is not only to strengthen its corporate strategy but also to provide a platform that enables further growth — organically or through acquisitions. Posten Norge looked for an IT supplier to facilitate the setup of a distributed organization, enabling business across the Nordics and to provide a stage for effective coordination and the necessary organizational flexibility. This meant that the IT function at Posten Norge had to be consolidated, industrialized, and processed through a common functional and standard framework; Posten Norge aimed to take advantage of economies of scale.
