Optidev – One of Sweden’s Best Places to Work

– Our fast advancement on the “Great Place To Work” listing of Sweden’s best work places shows that we are on track to reach our goal of becoming the best workplace in the Nordic region, says Fredrik Logenius, CEO of Optidev.

Optidev has just been recognized for its placement on the list of Sweden’s best places to work at an event at Cirkus in Stockholm. Last year, Optidev was included on the prestigious list, ranking 24 of Sweden’s 25 best workplaces. This year, Optidev made a big leap forward and advanced to place 17.

– Our progress validates that our efforts to uncover our coworkers’ possibilities and potential have paid off. I am very happy about the results, says David Landerborn, COO at Optidev and responsible for the partnership with Great Place To Work.

Optidev started the partnership with Great Place To Work in 2017. Great Place to Work is a global organization that works with evaluating and developing workplace cultures. Companies are ranked based on thorough employee surveys and analysis of the corporate culture. Based on the study results, Great Place to Work make recommendations for improvements that the company can do to become an even better workplace.

– We have learned from the results and implemented several changes based on the study, says David.
According to David, all levels of the company have been involved in the process and coworkers have been given the chance to try different roles with the company. David believes that many people focus too much on a person’s education instead of looking at the skills, motivation and personality.

– By allowing coworkers to try different roles, you can discover new strengths and possibilities. It allows coworkers to develop new skills while increasing the company’s expertise.

Since last year, the HR manager Marje Langseth Seimre has joined the Optidev team.

– I have worked in HR for many years, but never in a company like Optidev that really understands the importance of a corporate culture. Optidev has a unified and highly committed board and management team and all the members are highly engaged in the efforts to become the best workplace in the Nordic region.

Technology from Optidev Enables Same Day Delivery With PostNord

“It is Optidev that has developed the software for the new concept MyPack Home SameDay from PostNord, enabling delivery on the same day the order is placed”, says Optidev’s CEO Fredrik Logenius.

PostNord and the apparel retailer Lager 157 recently announced that they would start offering the SameDay service for orders placed before 3:00 pm through a pilot test in Stockholm. In the spring PostNord plans to offer this service to other e-retailers throughout Sweden. PostNord drivers already use the Optidev app to get information about where packages should be picked up, how many there are, where they should be delivered to, and in what order. The SameDay solution developed by Optidev allows them to track the status for all packages.

“Our SameDay API enables PostNord to see where packages are located and it provides the latest GPS coordinates and the estimated delivery time. This information can be shared with PostNord’s customers”, explains Fredrik Carlund, key account manager at Optidev.

Optidev’s collaboration with PostNord goes back many years. In addition to the mobile app for the drivers’ handheld devices and the new API for the SameDay service, Optidev is responsible for the technology that enables PostNord to remotely control and update all the mobile devices and also handles the service of the handheld devices.
“It is inspiring and developing to work with a large and leading company like PostNord that is also an early adopter of new technology. PostNord has the strength, logistics capability and size to establish the SameDay service throughout Sweden”, concludes Fredrik Logenius.
