This digital service offering will also be complemented by the product information management solutions from RockOn Oy.
The collaboration between Exove and Gredi has deepened rapidly in recent months. Our shared values and work culture unite us. Especially from the perspective of digital growth for our customers, the offerings of both companies create an excellent combination. Gredi’s well-known brand and content management solutions, along with their extensive experience in e-commerce, and Exove’s deep expertise in web services, enable the development of versatile web solutions, says Lars Oehlandt, Head of Digital Business at PunaMusta Media.
In addition to the benefits for customers, the merger is expected to strengthen Exove’s position as a leader in guiding the future of the work. Both Gredi and Exove employees will benefit from this change, especially through new career opportunities and a more diverse daily life.
Remote work is here to stay, but we also want to offer a more enjoyable experience for those working in the offices. We have already merged our offices in the Helsinki metropolitan area, increasing social interaction among our experts, Oehlandt specifies.
