Orbit Online, a Danish IT development company specializing in enterprise solutions, is now entering the broader Nordic market. Orbit Online is providing an extranet solution for Microsoft in Finland, focusing on food and service in eight large internal restaurants serving more than 10,000 employees.
Orbit is providing the extranet solution, in cooperation with ISS. In the wake of the successful deployment in Finland, ISS has now endorsed Orbit as extranet supplier for ISS for the whole of Scandinavia. ISS is the biggest Scandinavian player in the field of facility services, and holds a large amount of similar service contracts with other Nordic clients. The strategic alliance with ISS Nordic therefore gives Orbit a unique opportunity to deploy its web solution broadly across the Nordic countries.

René Dalsgaard Larsen, CEO of Orbit Online:

We’re extremely happy to have been given this opportunity by ISS Nordic. The endorsement as Nordic extranet supplier accords perfectly with our new strategy, which focuses more strongly on major clients. This makes it a logical step for us to focus on export and to form strategic partnerships with the big international players. In that respect we’ve already achieved a lot, delivering solutions to the SAS Institute, Shell and Arla.

According to René Dalsgaard Larsen, ISS Nordic chose Orbit for a variety of reasons:

Our extranet is extremely user-friendly – for example, it’s the only system on the market with 100% wysiwyg editing. We can also offer fast, low-cost development of tailor-made solutions, because we’ve designed the Orbit web solution to provide fast and easy adjustment, styling and variation. All of this combined gives us a competitive advantage in price, quality and delivery.

This is confirmed by Tom Lund, Nordic Catering Manager at ISS, who is responsible for a similar contract with the Nordic headquarters of Nordea, one of the biggest service contracts within ISS Nordic:

I’d like to commend our collaboration with Orbit. They’ve shown a tremendous understanding of our needs, and have provided a platform that suits the task perfectly. It all worked quickly and easily, with a high standard of service. After just two weeks we had our first website up and running. Orbit offers concepts and platforms that simply work, and a growing number of our clients are also choosing their solution – most recently Oslo University Hospital. 

Orbit currently generates 30 percent of its turnover from export. René Dalsgaard Larsen expects that the strategic partnership with ISS Nordic will contribute significantly to Orbit reaching its ambitious export goals for the coming three years: an increase in export revenue from 30 to 50 percent. Aside from extranet solutions, the export potential of Orbit lies primarily in the Orbit enterprise knowledge-sharing platform, which is already being used by a number of engineering and consultancy companies such as Valcon, MOE and Arkitema.
