Forte Digital launches a new consulting company

The new company is named Forte Solutions and consists of experts in Microsoft's ERP and CRM solutions. Petter Aunan will lead the initiative.

– It was essentially an easy decision when Forte Digital reached out and told me they wanted to build a new professional environment within business applications. Forte Digital's focus on interdisciplinary collaboration was one of the things that really appealed to me when I had the opportunity to join the company, says Aunan.

Aunan has over 13 years of experience in the consulting industry and has worked as a consultant and leader in several major digitalization projects. Joining him in the endeavor are Erland Hagen, Henrik Killi, and Hans Jørgen Matthiasen. Aunan plans for the company to reach 10 employees by the end of the year, and recruitment is already ahead of schedule.

– We will assist our clients in realizing value in their business systems. This means providing our best advice regarding the implementation, management, and further development of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform. With me on board, I have a group of highly experienced individuals with extensive experience in the industry who will complement Forte Digital's existing expertise well, especially in data platforms, data-driven marketing, and e-commerce, says Aunan.

A perfect fit

Forte Solutions joins several new areas of focus that Forte Digital has launched in recent years. Last year, the consulting company recruited Agnete Tøien Pedersen from Kahoot to lead Forte Optimize, Forte Digital's initiative in data-driven marketing.

Eivind Willard, Chief Commercial Officer at Forte Digital, believes that the various areas will create good synergies for customers.

– With the establishment of Forte Solutions and Forte Optimize, we will become a more complete digitalization partner for our customers. The expertise we have gained through Petter and his team combined with our existing expertise in customer data and data-driven marketing, fits like a glove. Our ambition is to become Norway's best provider of personalized content in marketing and digital commerce, says Willard.

Going international

Forte Digital was started in 2017 as a purely technological environment. Since then, the company has expanded its service portfolio by establishing its own departments in user experience, strategic consulting, marketing, and consulting services.

The Forte group now counts more than 350 employees across Norway, Poland, Germany, and Denmark. The ambition is also to take Forte Solutions abroad.

– I believe we represent something different from what many of our competitors deliver in that we can now create value for customers across all business areas - both nationally and internationally. We also have a clear ambition to build Forte Solutions in both Denmark and Germany, says Willard.
