Atea choose competency mapping from CatalystOne.
As a leading provider of IT infrastructure in the Nordic and Baltic region, Atea had strict requirements and high expectations for a new tool for competency mapping. “CatalystOne listened to our needs and demonstrated that they have the expertise to get the job done,” says Per Nilssen, Atea’s Consultant Manager in Oslo.
This is all in a day’s work for Atea, one of Norway’s leading suppliers of IT infrastructure, and a situation many knowledge-based businesses will recognise. Atea is currently implementing a new tool to make it easier to put the right expertise in the right place.
The following requirements were decisive for Atea:
– Flexible solution with options to search for both specialist expertise and geographic location.
– Professional presentation of CVs, where areas of expertise and other content can be defined as needed.
– Consultants can update their own project experience and certifications.
Efficient search for relevant expertise
“This will give us a whole new flexibility in our efforts to identify and seek out the expertise we need for our various projects. Expertise needs to be constantly refreshed, and now we will also have a better overview of each consultant’s certifications and project experience,” says Nilssen. “I am convinced that both project managers, the Bid Department and our consultant coordinators will experience this as a very effective tool.”
CatalystOne has previously supplied software to support performance management processes to Atea in Sweden.
“It’s exciting to be able to deliver an additional solution from our software suite to Atea,” says CatalystOne’s Sales Director Magne Tveter.
Atea’s Consultant Manager in Oslo
With over 1,000 consultants across the country, we need a system that makes it easy to staff projects with the right expertise and helps us maximize our consultants’ time. We had a CV management system that was not flexible enough and had poor search capabilities. So when we went looking for a new system, we had a very detailed requirements specification. We quickly realised that CatalystOne understood our needs.
