Södra, Sweden’s largest forest owners’ association, and an international forest industry group selected Tietoevry as strategic partner to develop and manage their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
Through this partnership, Tietoevry will provide "Next Generation" Application Development and Management (ADM) services with a focus on automation, agility, and continuous delivery. The purpose is to help Södra to achieve its digitization goals and ensure the maximum benefit for forest owners.
The partnership is rooted in a shared ambition to cultivate a culture where both successes and challenges are shared openly, enabling Södra and Tietoevry to work together to create more efficient and effective solutions that will bring the greatest value to Södra and forest owners.
“For us, important factors were Tietoevry’s proven forest industry knowledge and strong delivery capabilities. Tietoevry is already managing various forest-related systems at Södra and with this extended partnership Tietoevry will be able to manage our system portfolio end-to-end which creates a more efficient setup” says Cristian Brolin, Chief Digital Officer (CDO) at Södra Forest Owners Association.
Södra and Tietoevry have a longstanding relationship that spans many years, and this new agreement serves to further strengthen it. This agreement will be valid for three years, and both parties have the option to extend it by another two years.
“We are thrilled to support Södra on their digitalization journey by bringing the advantages of standardized processes and effective application management. This partnership reinforces Tietoevry's position as a premier business and core systems modernization partner in the Nordics with a strong industrial segment focus,” says Jaakko Tapanainen Head of Industry & Forest at Tietoevry Transform.
