By Sigrid Marie Saastad
Marketing Manager, Addovation
Jesper, you are one of the newest additions to our team! What is your experience of working at Addovation so far?
It’s been very positive, and I have felt very included from the start, and I already feel like I’m a valued part of the team due to the positive team spirit. Every new employee at Addovation takes part in something called “introduction week,” where we are introduced to the company values, the different business areas, and people across the company. I have also been assigned a Mentor that follows up regularly. I felt, and still feel, very welcomed.
What type of customers are you currently working with?
Currently, I am working for an international freight company that operates in 19 countries. The scope is huge, and there is a lot of intercompany functionality involved, so it’s pretty complex. But that is what makes it fun. I love a good challenge! I am also working on upgrade projects for other customers of Addovation and doing general consulting to improve finance processes for different customers.
What can you offer our customers?
Before working at Addovation, I was a NetSuite Administrator at ZetaDisplay. I know what it’s like to be on the other side of the table about what it means to be responsible for a NetSuite solution. So I would say that one of my stronger sides is the ability to see what the customer wants and find great solutions that ads value and improves processes and functionality.
What do you think is the coolest about NetSuite?
I love its flexibility and simplicity. NetSuite comes with ready-made modules based on the industry. The modules can be tailored to fit the company processes, and you do not have to be a solution architect to do so!
Why did you choose to work with ERP, and why Addovation?
My ERP interest was rooted in my previous position as a system administrator. The more I worked with NetSuite, the more my interest grew. As I have a Bachelor in Finance, I thought it would be a great idea to combine the two interests, and I’m glad I got this opportunity at Addovation.
What do you like to do besides work?
I love sports, especially football. I watch English football, but I do not play myself. I am also a keen golf player. I enjoy traveling and exploring different parts of the world. Not necessarily the typical tourist hot spots, though. I like to visit places that offer me some perspective, which reminds me of how fortunate I am.
Thanks so much for the chat, Jesper. Do you have a fun fact you can leave us with?
I lived in Hong Kong for 6 months during my studies, but I do not speak Cantonese. My golf Handicap is 17 😊
