Runsvengruppen signs up with Iver

18 September 2020 / Press release

Runsvengruppen, which owns the ÖoB retail chain, has chosen Iver as its new IT operations services provider. The agreement has a three-year term.

Runsvengruppen, which owns the ÖoB retail chain, with almost 100 department stores across Sweden and a turnover of just over SEK 4 billion, has chosen Iver as its new IT operations services provider. Over the next three years, Iver will, initially at least, provide service operations and service desk services for Runsvengruppen.

“A shift to outsourcing Runsvengruppen’s entire IT operations is an absolute must if we are to be future-proof in an increasingly digital world that demands 24/7 availability and, at the same time, secure our ongoing development so that we can operate in an omni-channel environment. We will also gain an extremely important ability, down the line, to control and manage business-critical IT processes, and a far more optimised operating cost picture. Having a proactive partner enables us to generate the potential for scalability, flexibility, and access to more services with shorter times-to-market. Iver will, quite simply, act as the long arm of the IT department,” says Peter Adell, IT Director at Runsvengruppen.

“Iver is, of course, absolutely delighted and proud to have been entrusted with providing our services for Runsvengruppen and ÖoB – one of Sweden’s strongest retail sector brands. The procurement process allowed us to show that we have a really attractive offering for larger actors in the retail sector, along with numerous strong customer references, and dedicated customer teams. We will ensure, by working in close partnership with Runsvengruppen and through our high-level personal commitment, that they join the list of satisfied Iver customers and that we establish a long-term sustainable partnership,” says Johan Wilhelmsson, Regional Manager at Iver.
