Nordic Morning Group has chosen SAP Business ByDesign for its new digital core and Sofigate as a partner. Sofigate helps Nordic Morning Group to enhance its business transformation.

Nordic Morning Group is on a journey since 2017 due to the digital transformation that affects all industries, as well as society. The aim is to repackage the capabilities and services to better meet today’s client needs and the digital business environment of tomorrow. The repackaging is done in close collaboration with the clients to deliver a superior customer experience, driving growth and customer loyalty.

The company now consists of three business areas with clear offerings: Nordic Morning creates digital experiences that transform businesses, Edita Publishing is a knowledge company that provides smart learning and curated information services and Edita Prima provides clear processes and automation for customer communication and sales support operations. Each of these businesses are in different phases on their transformation journey. Digitalization is an essential part of that journey.

To enable a well-managed, more efficient business transformation Nordic Morning Group chose modern cloud ERP – SAP Business ByDesign – for its new digital core and business growth platform. Sofigate Business Technologies is the partner providing the solution and implementation services.

Sofigate will deliver SAP Business ByDesign software licenses and a business solution for Nordic Morning Group both in Finland and Sweden. The project began in January 2019 and will be deployed in three main phases during 2019.

The new solution will modernize and simplify the system landscape and enable common core business processes for all Nordic Morning Group businesses. The ERP project has been named GLOW, which reflects the importance of the overall project and its positive impact on Nordic Morning Group. The ERP project represents a major change for the company, and will benefit all employees.

“Nordic Morning Group wanted to have one common, scalable cloud-based ERP platform that enables us to drive the business processes in the best possible way. SAP Business ByDesign proved to be the right solution for us as it offers a real end-to-end solution to build on. It is flexible and extensible which are essential qualities to support the future needs as well. We also wanted to have an implementation partner who understands our complex starting point in the transformation journey and the business needs. That is why Sofigate’s customer centric approach was an important selection criterion for us. It was also great to notice that both Sofigate and us highly value the organizational change management as a key success factor of the ERP project,” says Kristiina Kujala, CFO of Nordic Morning Group.

According to Sofigate’s Sari Mikkonen, Sofigate and its offering were a perfect fit for a professional services company like Nordic Morning Group because Sofigate could respond to the company’s needs comprehensively. With the help of Sofigate’s expertise and the modern SAP Business ByDesign solution, Nordic Morning Group can now harmonize its businesses and bring people and technology together in a smart way that helps it to achieve its goal of becoming a data-driven company and enable growth.

“Nordic Morning Group wants to become a data-driven company and utilize modern technology for digitalization. We were able to offer more than just a product and the services of a comprehensive partner. Nordic Morning Group is a great example of a company that wants to improve its business processes with the help of new business technology,” says Sari Mikkonen, Business Executive of Sofigate Business Technologies.
