CareTech Chooses Jeeves for International Expansion
CareTech, currently in a vigorous expansionary phase, operates in 15 countries and has its head office in Kalix, Sweden. CareTech is the global leader in digital “care alarms.” The analogue telecom networks around Europe are being replaced by digital communication and IP telephony. Replacing the analogue equipment is estimated to generate business worth hundreds of millions of euro.
“We were looking for an ERP system that could support the company’s growth and sales processes in those countries where we do business. A professional communication platform that places the customer in the center is the key to success. In combination with a powerful e-commerce solution, this was a major factor when we unanimously chose Jeeves ERP,” said CareTech CEO Arto Brushane and CFO Kerstin Lundqvist.
“Now we’ll have the functionality and support that we need for logistics, traceability, and e-commerce that are utterly critical for us. In addition, we’re getting a system that can handle our international markets. The implementation of Jeeves will influence how we structure our organization, and I can already see that we will become much more efficient in our tasks,” Kerstin Lundqvist said.
Jeeves ERP will initially be implemented at CareTech’s units in Sweden and Germany, after which it will eventually be used in the business operations in other countries.
“We are proud of the trust CareTech has placed in us and look forward to an exciting implementation project and a long-lasting relationship,” said Thomas Lundberg of SYSteam, from Skellefteå, Sweden, which sold and will introduce the system into CareTech’s operations.
