your discussion partner and advisors through the digital transformation journey.

About us
While banking and finance have taken advantage of digital opportunities, most of the Norwegian and global industry has barely started its digital journey.

We are all affected by the digital transformation that has spread throughout society and changed our way of living over the last decades. The public sector has been in the lead and digitalization of our personal tax reports, Digipost, Altinn and health data have saved us all both time and frustration. In the private sector smart phones have made our life easier through numerous apps allowing us control and easy access to shopping, travel, smart homes, music, films etc. Through this digital tsunami, that will continue to change our lives at an accelerating pace, the industry has not been affected in the same way. While banking and finance have taken advantage of digital opportunities, most of the Norwegian and global industry has barley started its digital journey.

Digital solutions can and will lead to dramatic changes in the years to come, not only within production and maintenance, but also within business administration and reporting. Most companies are still struggling with legacy software and manual spreadsheets where monthly reports summarize operational and financial information that is several weeks old. The same applies for machineries and mechanical equipment not linked to data platforms through smart sensors, that would allow them to predict future behaviour and use of big data in a smarter-, more competitive- and disruptive way.

A digital transformation shall be profitable.

When a bank or another major company starts on an digital transformation journey it is because is shall be profitable and competitive. The profit can materialise itself though efficiency gains when removing bottlenecks or manual processes. In more than often cases, profitability shows itself through new business opportunities arising from the digital transformation process. A digital transformation is not about cost cutting, but about efficiency gains and making the work place agile. As your digital partner, btwn will identify and highlight untapped digital potential within your  organisation – and provide you with the Digital Change Capacity your company require to meet your digital strategy.

Based on our experience it is difficult to start the digital journey and to find the right partner for a digital transformation.

To be able to see all aspects of what a digital transformation actually can lead to for your company, btwn puts together teams of not only experts within IT and data, but also within automation to be able to explore potential use of sensors, big data, robots, ESG emissions and autonomous processes. Industry experienced colleagues with financial and administrative competence and background are part of the btwn team. We are able to identify manual and cumbersome work processes within administration, accounting, payroll, etc. This to allow real-time data to flow directly onto monthly reports and/or “live” KPI dashboards. If data entry is done at month end, then some data will be four weeks old already.

Further on we employ colleagues with managerial and board experience to offer discussion partners to our clients related to business development, digital strategies and how to search for new business models and concepts.

Digital solutions can in many cases lead to new business lines through digital communication and seamless flow of data between both your vendors and clients. Huge changes within the landscape of the Norwegian industry are expected as a consequence of disruptive solutions through digitalization. To be able to allow data to flow without restrictions through legacy software systems, a data platform is recommended in order to collect data for further consumption in Busniness Intelligence (BI), new apps / control systems and beyond. IT specialists in combination with our programmers are valuable resources in our teams and btwn gains valuable experience through a continuously changing landscape.

As a first step on your digital journey, btwn recommends a brief digital screening of your company. The outcome of such a screening will show how digitally mature your company is compared to others and peers, highlighting a selection of digital opportunities for your choosing.

Our focus areas for a digital screening can be divided into the following four areas:

Digital opportunities within Business & Administration, Sales & Clients, Production & Maintenance, and finally how your IT-hierarchy is linked up to your digital strategy. If your digital strategy is not yet in place, btwn is your partner.

It’s important for us to underline that btwn is not a standard product or system provider. As an independent company, btwn is solely acting as an advisor and discussion partner searching for the best digital solution for your company. In this way btwn can be a disruptive “think tank” for your company, solving your challenges through the best possible solutions available. If you need a data platform, application or software solution not available in the market, btwn can assist or develop such tools through our internal resources. The same applies for automation and robotization projects where the aim is to remove manual tasks in you workshop or production line.

‍By contacting btwn, you will not be served by an ordinary automation or IT / software services company, rather an industry experienced business team that will be your discussion partner and advisor through your digital transformation journey.
