The employment limits and delays make it difficult for Norwegian companies to find the right people to join the projects. It is extremely complicated to replace an underperforming team member, which means that the company has to be 110% sure that a selected candidate will fit well. Altoros’s flexible staffing strategy helps to speed up the hiring process and enables to add new members to the team within hours.

Two years have passed since Altoros opened new offices in Oslo and Porsgrunn, Norway. Jan-Terje Nordlien, CEO of Altoros Norge AS, states that during that time the company has achieved over 60% growth. Customers enjoy the fact that the local team speaks Norwegian, and they can submit the project requirements in their native language.

Tommy Hansen

This month, two new members have joined our international team. Tommy Hansen, Project Manager, and John-Eirik Falch, Sales Director, are now ready to help customers with their projects.

One of the reasons why companies are reluctant to partner with remote teams is that they are worried about the communication barriers and weak control over project progress. I know this because I’ve worked as a project manager before and owned IT4you, so I often needed developers who would bring my ideas to life. This experience gave me deep understanding of the typical problems that other companies face when they delegate work on a project to others. This is why we have offices in different parts of the world, so that customers can communicate with us locally.” —Tommy Hansen, Altoros

John-Eirik Falch

“We are native-speaking Norwegians, so, when we negotiate or start up a project, customers from Scandinavian countries can contact us directly and, we will then communicate their requirements to our team. We can also participate in all conversations regarding the project to clarify any details at any stage if needed. This helps to avoid any misunderstanding and misinterpreting of the requirements,” added Tommy Hansen.

Another issue is that sometimes a company does not have an employee with a proper technical background in their office to explain precisely what they need. Tommy Hansen can work at a company’s office and communicate with the staff and executives and then contact the development team to explain exactly what the customer needs. He will take on all the organizational aspects.
