Forte Digital Partners with KPMG
Forte Digital has entered into a strategic partnership with consulting giant KPMG. Together, they have secured framework agreements with a combined value of over 10 billion Norwegian kroner.
Technology consulting firm Forte Digital is now aligning itself with the auditing and consulting company KPMG. The coalition has thus far won two significant framework agreements with the Health Administration and Specialist Health Services, totaling 5.6 and 4.8 billion Norwegian kroner, respectively.
Johan Grönlund, Chief Operating Officer at Forte Digital, is very pleased with the collaboration.
– KPMG is one of the strongest brands in the consulting industry, and we are very happy to forge a closer relationship with them. KPMG has the expertise we need, and vice versa. We complement each other well. Winning two major framework agreements is a clear indication that we are a good match, says Grönlund.
Forte Digital currently provides services in development, architecture, user experience, and consulting. The consulting firm counts large Norwegian enterprises such as NorgesGruppen, OBOS, the Norwegian Church, and Måsøval among its clients.
Under the framework agreements with the Health Administration and Specialist Health Services, KPMG and Forte Digital will deliver services in system development, project management, architecture, strategy, product development, and user experience.
Innovation in public organizations
Kristine Bolstad leads KPMG Tech Consulting. She believes that the coalition further strengthens KPMG's ability to contribute to increased transformation and innovation in public organizations.
– Norwegian businesses are facing highly complex technology projects and stringent requirements. These projects, therefore, demand extensive professional breadth, and we at KPMG rely on partnering with the best. Forte Digital's expertise and experience will contribute to strengthening our position as a driver for digitization and increased pace of change.
Marianne Aas, responsible partner for the framework agreement with the Health Administration at KPMG, is confident that the partnership between KPMG and Forte Digital will lead to many good solutions for Norwegian health enterprises.
– We are already seeing very positive results from the collaboration. With Forte Digital on board, we are even stronger in advocating for putting users of public services at the center when developing new digital services, says Aas.
