As one of the largest IT companies in the Nordics, EVRY provides extensive deliveries to Nordic companies, financial institutions, national public sector entities, municipalities and health authorities.
EVRY has 10.000 employees and has a local presence in 50 towns and cities across the Nordic countries, with particular emphasis on Norway and Sweden. In addition, EVRY owns businesses in India and the Ukraine that contribute significant deliveries to Nordic customers in addition to providing services to customers in other European countries and in the USA. EVRY is the force behind a whole range of innovations that have transformed and simplified the way people access services across society. Over 4 million Nordics use services delivered by EVRY each day. Throughout the day and night, people are logging into online banking, retrieving important work documents or just checking the timetable for the next train home.
Renewal of society
The digital revolution means that people are making use of new online services in ever more areas. This means that we can access information, buy goods and services or use public sector services at any time that suits us. EVRY makes this possible, which means that we are helping to change daily life and the working day for many people. We believe that the digital revolution is creating new ways of doing business and changing the competitive environment in many markets. Tasks and services that used to be delivered manually are now automated and digitized. We have so far seen only the beginning of what can be created by the powerful combination of new technology.
Role in the proDataMarket project
EVRY participates as a large industry partner in the project for proDataMarket. EVRY has a role as a service provider and business developer. The focus will be adding value to the data market, generate services and business opportunities.
EVRY’s core value “to the benefit of society” is a guiding light for our involvement in the proDataMarket project. We aim to be part of the digitalization of the building sector, and use technology to create cross-sectorial services and tools that can make use of property data in new and innovative ways.
One area is the neighbor notice part of the building process. Changes to a property will in many cases require owners of bordered properties to receive a notification of the planned work with detailed drawings and all necessary information. Such a notice will be supplemented by a mapping application that will show detailed plans directly on a map and also display the suggested changes, i.e. a garage or an outhouse, on top of a camera feed using augmented reality.
Addressing the high amount of costly subterranean infrastructure damages caused by excavation is another important aspect of this project. Such damages are often due to poor maps, lack of map usage, or lack of map availability. We aim to provide solutions and services that will hinder obstacles like this to ensure less damage and less time spent on looking for this kind of information. The target result is an augmented reality application that can provide authorized persons the ability to “see” what subterranean infrastructure is located at a given physical location. Identified stakeholders are entrepreneurs doing infrastructure installations or repairs, and local/central government keeping the overview of existing subterranean infrastructure.
