Columbus announces a strategic partnership with itelligence to strengthen its activities with Swedish and other Nordic customers within SAP business applications solutions. The partnership implies sale of Columbus’ Swedish SAP ERP business unit to itelligence.

Copenhagen, Denmark – 2 July 2018 – Columbus (OMX:COLUM): Columbus has entered into a strategic partnership with itelligence in Sweden. The partnership combines the most experienced SAP consultants in the market to offer strong end-to-end solutions within the SAP area ranging from technology to process and business solutions.

“Columbus’ expertise and focus are within SAP Customer Experience and e-commerce solutions. By entering a partnership with itelligence, we ensure our customers the best SAP expertise in the Swedish and Nordic market. At the same time, the partnership gives our SAP ERP consultants the opportunity to work and advance their career in a global SAP solution-based environment worldwide”, says CEO in Columbus, Thomas Honoré.

The partnership means that itelligence will take over Columbus’ Swedish SAP business unit with 19 highly skilled SAP ERP consultants. However, Columbus’ SAP Customer Experience expertise will remain with Columbus where we help some of the Nordic’s largest companies to accelerate their e-commerce business.

"We are very much looking forward to welcoming our new skilled colleagues from Columbus. They are a perfect match to our strategic ambition of offering our clients a proven portfolio of industry solutions, add-ons and specialized knowledge,” says the Managing Director of itelligence Sweden, Milco Österholm.
