The foundation Kirkens Bysmisjon Oslo, an open and inclusive non-profit organization with approximately 1300 permanent employees, choose Visolit as operating partner for their entire IT environment. The agreement ensures Kirkens Bymisjons modern IT functionality and greater organizational leverage in the digital transformation the welfare organization is going through.
Kirkens Bymisjon will achieve more for more people
“Our strategy says that we as an organization will achieve more for more people. At the same time, we operate in changing political and social environments. It requires us to be able to ensure maximum utilization of IT service deliveries and that they are delivered with the right functionality, quality and cost at all times. In addition, we are now entering an exciting year as the recipient of the charity telethon in 2018, which will require a lot from all parts of the organization”, says Øivind Solheim, IT Director of Kirkens Bymisjon.
With IT services from Visolit, employees and volunteers at Kirkens Bymisjon are guaranteed modern IT functionality and support 24/7. This is important for the organization, which among other things operates many 24-hour businesses within the health and care sector.
From operation to digital transformation
"The agreement with Visolit is an important step in changing the focus of internal IT from being an operational and support department to being a driving force and implementation in the continuous digital transformation we all stand in the middle of", says Solheim.
"In partnership with Visolit, we achieve the power to build new important and necessary roles to help the organization and all our businesses continue in this process while maintaining stable and good operating and support services", the IT Director continues.
Service-based operating model for health and welfare
The service integrator Visolit offers a modern, service-based operating model with secure storage of sensitive data in Norwegian data centres. The company has solid experience in operation and support for several companies within health and welfare, and looks forward to assisting Kirkens Bymisjon in achieving more for more people through a smarter IT everyday life:
“We are proud and humble that Kirkens Bymisjon chooses Visolit as a strategic IT partner. Our main task is to make sure that their employees and volunteers have an effective workday with their IT systems”, says Anne-Grethe Wåsjø, Senior Sale Executive at Visolit.
We look forward to developing strategically good cooperation where Visolit, in addition to delivering good operating and support services, will also be an important proactive party in our development arenas going forward, ”concludes Øivind Solheim in anticipation of the collaboration.
