Jeeves Bolsters its Position in Finland
For some time, Merit Consulting has partnered with Lawson, a U.S. supplier of ERP systems, and has extensive business in Finland. Now they are adding Jeeves’ products to their offering with the aim of expanding sales to the SME segment.
In 2009, Jeeves signed a similar agreement with Merit Consulting for the Swedish market. Bengt-Åke Älgevik, CEO of Jeeves, considers this new agreement an extension of their collaboration, giving ample opportunity to win market shares in the Nordic region.
Merit Consulting currently has 40 consultants around Finland who specialize in ERP-systems. In addition, the company has consultants in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the UK, and the Benelux countries. The company has many years’ experience in business development for food and beverage, manufacturing and distribution companies.
Jeeves Information Systems AB develops Sweden’s most popular ERP system*. The products Jeeves Selected, Jeeves Universal, and Garp offer broad functionality at a cost of ownership among the lowest in the market. Customers currently include more than 4,000 companies in more than 40 countries.
