Maler Oy, a Finnish family-owned company specializing in interior construction, has recently adopted the Frends integration platform. This strategic move primarily aims to enhance the connectivity between their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and financial systems, focusing on product order management in its initial phase. As the integration progresses, it will extend to areas such as product information management.
"We chose Frends because our business systems needed better connectivity. It's a practical step towards business efficiency and modernization to ensure our products and services are easily accessible and up-to-date for our customers," says Jan Okker, Vice President, Maler Oy.
In a competitive e-commerce landscape, accurate, real-time product information is indispensable. By leveraging the capabilities of Frends Integration Platform, Maler Oy is positioning itself to meet these industry demands more effectively, reinforcing its commitment to service excellence and customer satisfaction.
"As someone who has worked with numerous businesses, I've seen firsthand the transformative power of integration. For companies like Maler, in e-commerce, it's not just about connecting systems — it's about laying a robust foundation for growth, actively refining operations for building and digitalizing superior customer experiences, and reducing potential roadblocks," says Mika Moisio, Senior Sales Executive at Frends.
