Shaping the future of society through technology

 

How does empowering people lead to a more sustainable society? By reducing time-consuming and repetitive work, people become happier and freer to focus on more purpose-driven actions.

We are facilitating a shift in priorities

There’s a reason that our mission at Visma is to empower people by simplifying and automating complex processes. Difficult and time-consuming tasks eat into productivity, making it difficult for businesses and organisations to stay efficient, profitable, and competitive. When we make our customers’ tasks simpler and faster, we empower people to take better control of their activities and direct more of their energy toward what really matters.

Take artificial intelligence (AI) as an example. AI at Visma is about simplifying people’s lives, and one common way we do that is by automating tasks previously done by people. Robots or “digital assistants” are assigned to tasks that are the most boring, repetitive, or time-consuming.

One robot might check that an expense report was correctly filled out. Another might check thousands of procurement documents to ensure there are no mistakes and minimise the possibility of law-related problems.

Once these tasks are automated, organisations become more productive while reducing costs. Moreover, people gain the capacity and freedom to reassign roles and reallocate their resources to other, more important areas in an organisation.

Taken together, these benefits mean that time and resources can be invested in work that is more meaningful and produces higher business and social value.

 

Not just robots

Visma offers a wide breadth of technologies and solutions, across industries, that are helping people refocus and reprioritise their activities. These have become even more relevant in the face of Covid-19; when we digitise core work, it is not only good for the environment, but also for people’s health and well-being.
