“The history of Digia’s ERP system goes back more than 25 years. That’s an enormous achievement for any information system. The secret behind Digia Enterprise’s longevity is that it’s made in Finland, close to the customers who use it, and has been developed in close cooperation with those customers,” explains Stefan Hellstrand, Director, Digia.
As we revamp the system, together with our customers, we have boldly turned our attentions once again to the future. Our development teams have been considering what companies’ ERP needs look like now and how they are likely to evolve in the future. Our new vision is an ERP system that manages users’ work more effectively than ever and that places aspects like personalisation and data visualisation in a key role.
Guided by a blue-and-green vision: the Key Flag as proof of Finnish origin and a pilot project to calculate your carbon footprint
According to Stefan Hellstrand, two colours define our new vision: green and blue.
“At Digia, we work towards a more sustainable future, and Digia Envision will be no exception to this. Sustainability goals also influence our customers’ everyday operations, and we believe that ERP systems can be important tools in companies’ corporate responsibility reporting and development. This spring, in cooperation with our pilot customers, we will begin development of Digia Envision ERP’s reporting tools to allow users to calculate their carbon footprint,” Hellstrand announces.
“In addition to our corporate responsibility work, we are also extremely proud about the fact that Digia Envision is made in Finland and that it has been granted the Key Flag symbol in recognition of this. A system that is in Finnish, is developed in Finland close to the customers who use it and that gives customers a chance to directly influence its development is not something that can be taken for granted in the market,” Hellstrand says.
