North group meets at Lantmännen Maskin in Umeå
Movex User Group had an interesting day when the North group met for its autumn meeting at Ålö AB. Besides Ålös introduction of the company and its very exciting market position in the world, the topic of the day was to highlight the orders to delivery project as Ålö worked with a couple of years.
Jan Frostvinge also explained how to work with a Movex Council internally to capture ideas and suggestions for improvement of the processes. We also got an insight into how WMI stock are handled. Börje Phillipsson, Ålö, has a long experience in this field and has been with the WMI part ever since it was started in 2008. During the tour of the factory, we were able to see firsthand the various flows that Börje had previously been accounted for. The meeting ended with the decision on the next match, which becomes 2014-01-28 at Lantmännen Maskin in Umeå.
UDK has participated in a number of trade fairs and events recently where we have learned about growing trends and heard about good examples of companies that use PIM and DAM to streamline their work as well as more about just why Norway is leading the way.
Interesting Trend-spotting at Working Together Conference
Movex/M3’s user association recently held a conference called Working Together Conference 2013. Among the speakers was Hans Werner from Radar Ecosystem Specialists, who held an exciting lecture about IT trends and developments in the Swedish market and in Swedish enterprise. Among other things, Werner demonstrated how cost-effective solutions are becoming increasingly attractive; admittedly at the same time as IT budgets are steadily increasing, though not at the same pace as economic growth.
He also revealed that ERP continues to be the top priority for enterprise, with Business Intelligence in second place. It was interesting to note that virtual meeting solutions are a newcomer among business’ top priorities.

More and More Businesses Using PIM and DAM to Achieve Efficiency
We also attended an event entitled Strategi som skapar affärsnytta – två heta områden PIM & DAM (translation: Strategy That Generates Advantages—Two Hot Areas, PIM & DAM) held by Wednesday Relations. During the event, several businesses explained how they have successfully integrated increased product volume with information requirements and channel selections, but also how they have gained control of their digital portfolios.
For example, Folksam explained how it has successfully introduced:
• New methods for the production and publication of marketing and business documents
• Faster production and delivery
• Improved service and faster handling of customer inquiries
• Cost-effective production and reduced system costs.

Norway a Leader in Choosing Latest M3/Movex
A host of interesting talks were presented at the Info-teamdagene 2013 event, held in Oslo. Infor’s talk was certainly among them, as it revealed that 20 percent of Infor’s Norwegian customers have chosen to run the latest version of M3/Movex, version 10.1.
We are seeing that more and more customers are realizing the advantages of upgrading to the latest version and our neighbor to the west, Norway, is exemplary in this.
