(PEAB is a leading construction company in the Nordics)

PEAB has invested in a unique software platform from Ortelius AB called inorigo® (from Malmö, Sweden) to take advantage and leverage its experience and the collective  intelligence throughout the Group. “Now we have a perfect tool to make our knowledge accessible when needed. It gives us a  clear competitive advantage now when the digitization strike with greater force and ultimate  impact”: says Lars Johansso Development Director at PEAB Group.  In their strategic mindset, this investment is one of PEAB’s most important improvement  initiatives for the future.

Many large companies and government agencies have complex structures with a variety of applications and platforms that support the business. Through the inorigo® platform Ortelius have succeeded to create a unique platform that have the ability to capture and digitalize knowledge that resides in the heads of the experts and combine this  with data from all the different systems. inorigo® builds a common knowledge bank, a ”corporate brain” that is not only faster and more reliable when providing decision support, but also allows finding new business and future competitive advantages.

The construction industry is facing major changes. Competition for skilled labor is great and a lot of knowledge is lost when someone leaves. With the help of inorigo® there is a smart way to sort this out and collect this knowledge.  – “Information that earlier was in the spine and mind of a few people will now be available for the entire enterprise to take advantage of. Today we use check lists when making decisions, for instance when we will make offers for different projects. With this solution we will get a much better decision support and it is one in a row of strategic solutions on the platform”, stresses Lars Johansson.

Stefan Dageson, CTO and one of the founders of Ortelius, is obviously very pleased with PEAB’s thinking ahead. – “Today, many organizations devote only a fraction of the time to make critical decisions, the rest is spent to search for information, to develop background information and create different scenarios that can be used only once”. – Making it easier to obtain a trustworthy and reusable decision support is a major competitive advantage. With inorigo® our customers have full focus on the future instead of spending time on checking in the rearview mirror.”

The interest for Ortelius learning platform is great from all over the world. – “There are so many fascinating companies and organizations that could accelerate their ability to use knowledge through the software platform inorigo”, says Ulf Jensen, CEO of Ortelius.
