After just under 2 months in the executive chair, Jørn Seglem can now announce that we are establishing ourselves in Denmark. Oscar Tolstrup is welcomed and will lead the initiative in relation to Business Central and ERP solutions in Denmark.

It is fantastic to welcome Oscar Tolstrup to the Danish market, says Jørn Seglem. We have great ambitions in a fragmented Danish market – and look forward to rapidly scaling up resources – initially Business Central competences. At the same time, we will enter dialogue with Danish customers who want to create more value through digital service platforms and want an "end-to-end" Microsoft business partner who can help them transform data into value.


Long experience in the Danish market

I have worked with Business Central for over 20 years, together with large, Danish Microsoft Partners. When I started the dialogue with Skill Communicate, via former colleagues, I saw great potential in collaborating with Skill Communicate on establishing a business in Denmark, says Oscar Tolstrup.
Oscar has extensive experience in working closely with Microsoft and other important partners to ensure customers the optimal implementation of modern IT systems, continues Jørn Seglem.
I am passionate about solutions with a focus on sustainability and SaaS services based on the "NoCode-LowCode" principle, which ensures customers a future-proof solution, says Oscar. Skill Communicate has several in-house developed services, which have been developed based on many years of experience in the business. These will now benefit the Danish market through the establishment of the business in Denmark. I have deep and extensive knowledge in the area, and I look forward to entering the Danish market, Tolstrup adds.

Looking forward to getting started

The focus must always be that the customer gets the maximum benefit from his project investments, says Oscar. Often it is more about organizational development and process optimization than bits and bytes on an ERP, BI or CRM project. In Skill Communicate, I understand that the customer is only recommended what provides added value. It's a good match with my philosophy, Oscar says.
Over the years, I have met and worked with project-oriented and production companies in Danish as well as international projects. I know how important it is for customers to have a stable and reliable partner behind the project. A partner who can take responsibility for the entire project. I am really looking forward to establishing the Danish unit together with Skill Communicate and the owners, concludes Tolstrup.

Ranja Pedersen Ovedal is Market and Communications Director and is part of Jørn Seglem's team.

I am really looking forward to the establishment in Denmark and welcome Oscar on board. Our target group is best served by getting value from technology and we prepare them to seize the opportunities through rapid digital development. I am convinced that together with Oscar we can establish ourselves here in Denmark as the reliable specialist we are in Norway, says Ranja.
