Monday, June 18, 2018
Visma acquires Wikinggruppen and strengthens its focus on complete solutions for e-commerce and related system development. 3,500 customers, including 1,200 online stores, have their solutions operated by one of Sweden's largest and most experienced e-commerce providers.
– E-commerce is developing fast in both B2C and B2B, and Wikinggruppen is providing cost-effective, complete and flexible solutions for both segments with strong growth. Wikinggruppen’s solutions are an excellent addition to Visma’s current offerings for both our small and large customers, says Steffen Torp, Division Director for Visma Software SMB.
E-commerce today requires a solid platform that creates an optimal flow for driving traffic, converting the traffic to paying customers, managing orders, logistics and administration in a timely manner. Wikinggruppen's platform has its own open API that allows third-party providers to create integrations and applications for the benefit of customers and partners.
– We are looking forward to becoming part of the Visma Group with all the possibilities that it implies for our customers and employees. Together with Visma we can accelerate the pace of development and strengthen our offerings to the benefit of new and existing customers, says Jonte Bergman, Founder and CEO of Wikinggruppen.
Wikinggruppen will be continued as an independent company with its own offices, but will also be included in the Visma Group SMB division.
Wikinggruppen is a total supplier of e-commerce and related system development with offices in Hudiksvall and Stockholm. 37 employees provide graphic design, UX design, custom programming, e-commerce solution operations, operation of 1,200 online stores and web-based systems for 3,500 large and small customers.
