is a group of founding companies within 10 speciality fields. The collective aim was to cut out all the wasted time spent on dealing with mandatory requirements and internal personnel management. A new business growing from 5-50 employees will often experience major problems related to running the company. In fact, that’s the reason that only 3 out of 10 start-ups survive past their first 3 years, and only 1 in 10 survive more than 5 years. The BlueTag project was designed to change that to 7 out of 10 surviving.
Many larger and well-established companies use systems such as SAP. They have dedicated employees at every level making the process easier, but often at the expense of the bottom line. One of the objectives of BlueTag was that one person should be able to manage all the administration of a company with a turnover of NOK 30-40 million. Such a company could be a provider of demanding services with major seasonal fluctuations.
Tests were run over a number of years resulting in the testbed company successfully reducing personnel management from 7 to 2 people. Savings total over NOK 2 million per year. The Managing Director also confirmed that he was finally able to plan for the future and had full control.
BlueTag has definitely become something new and unique, with functions superior to other systems. After over 100,000 working hours, we were able to prove economists and banks wrong. We had a clear vision and with support from Innovasjon Norge, we achieved our target in 2015. We believe that BlueTag will change the traditional way of thinking about running a company or public service.
BlueTag will be a system with functions that make an impact on society thanks to innovation and values. BlueTag will be one of the cornerstones of society, contributing to stable jobs and support for the managers and owners of companies and government departments. BlueTag will be one of the most efficient systems, and places a lot of focus on customisation for users. That’s where the rewards of efficiency can be reaped, and more time gained to think in terms of quality, HSE and protecting the environment.
