Plandisc originated in Denmark as a planning tool for schools. Soon after its launch, their solution generated interest from companies in various industries that found it useful for their planning processes. Their solution helps organisations visualise the organisational flow and generate transparency. Plandisc is a natural step in Visma’s expansion in the Nordic region and will offer their public segment customers an even more comprehensive range of services.


"The Plandisc solution can be used across many sectors, and it has significant traction in the public sector, especially in the municipalities. Plandisc will be a part of Visma Custom Solutions, which already has a significant market position in these segments, and we see great synergy effects across our companies", says Lars Berthelsen, Director of Visma Custom Solutions in Denmark.


Since its establishment in 2012, Plandisc has been on an extensive journey and today serves many large, reputable customers with over 60,000 users. Since 2017, Plandisc has focused on becoming the Nordic region's leading provider of a rhythm of business solution that maps the organisational flow and facilitates collaboration across departments. Becoming part of the Visma Group has generated a lot of enthusiasm within the company.


“We are extremely proud to have Visma as strategic partner and owner. With their industry expertise and Nordic reach, we can raise our unique value proposition to the next level”, said co-founder and managing director Torben Stigaard.


"We have high expectations for Plandisc in the future. It is a company with strong management, committed employees and a universal solution, which they have managed to expand throughout different segments across the Nordic countries. We see concrete opportunities for a collaboration with a large number of different Visma companies, which will certainly help to catalyse Plandisc's growth further in the future,” said Lars Berthelsen.
