Grieg chose Maritech
In January 2022, we could finally share the news that Grieg Seafood ASA had chosen Maritech Purchase & Sales for their trading operations in Norway and Canada.
In parallel, Grieg was one of our pilot customers for the Maritech Quality Tracking solution. Further work is also being carried out to bring Grieg’s Seafood Logistics and Processing into the cloud.
Trading, processing, logistics, quality management
Our global partnership started when Grieg Seafood established their new, fully integrated sales organization in January 2021.
Grieg wanted to streamline all trading-related processes with modern, cloud-based tools, and the collaboration is part of the Grieg Group’s strong commitment to technology and efficiency.
Maritech Purchase & Sales is tailored to manage seafood value creation processes by ensuring a full company overview, with traceability and control throughout the value chain. The software is developed based on industry best practices, delivered as a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, and is the core tool in our Maritech Cloud platform in Microsoft Azure.
“Technology is one of several decisive factors in achieving our goal of reducing our environmental footprint while ensuring good profitability and further growth,” says Tom Thorgersen, Managing Director of Grieg Seafood’s Norwegian sales organization, Grieg Seafood Norway AS.
“We are intending to participate in the further development of Maritech’s digital systems and services. Our common goal is that our employees will soon work holistically within a single platform to operate our sales and value chain, from packaging to delivery. Our unwavering focus is safe food with full traceability in a sustainable business model for everyone involved,” says Thorgersen.
Impressed by Grieg Seafood
“We thank you for the trust and are proud and humble to be able to work so closely with Grieg Seafood,” says Erik Outzen, VP Services at Maritech.
“What started with a single project and a system delivery has resulted in a broader collaboration, where Grieg challenges us daily and shows great innovation power. They have full control, a clear strategy for how to move forward efficiently, and are extremely clear about where they are going. We experience them as highly professional, competent, and solution-oriented, and very interested in best practices – qualities that are reflected when it comes to the work processes they are enhancing through technology.”
Sharing the innovation mindset
“Our common denominator is more than seafood; we are two forward-leaning companies with a strong history behind us, who are now taking our businesses to the next level. In recent years, we have both made major strategic and operational promises to strengthen our organizations for the future. The fact that Maritech is a best-of-breed provider of modern cloud solutions supports the Enterprise Business Capabilities framework at Grieg. The fact that they chose to start such a large and complex project with us, just a year after we launched our cloud platform, also says a lot about both the willingness to innovate and their ability to implement their vision. That’s impressive. “
“We have now shown that we are equipped to deliver globally, both on the product and delivery side, and that our solutions work well for both smaller companies and large international corporations.” concludes Outzen.
