This session have several layers. Individual courage, corporate visions and market challenges. Many industries are facing changing market environments due to raw material shortages. Challenges keeping up to customer demands asking for shorter delivery times and price reductions. Finding ways to ensure data streams are up to date, used as intended and continuously improved.

To reflect upon
This session leave EBG with some new reflections – do you agree after watching it?
- Not having unified industry data formats still poses challenges
- Merging necessary data and processes upon a merger is still a challenge (however Beijer have found efficient ways!)
- Gathering data with different classifications is still a challenge (but can be done!)
- Raw material, price structures and customer demands can change rapidly, knowing your data is key (and there are ways to achieve it!)
- Engaging stakeholders still poses challenges – know who you are talking to and what is important to them! There are ways to adapt data/dashboards etc depending on who you talk to – one size does not fit all
Beijer like many other companies are on a digitization and digitalization journey. There is much to learn from each others experiences!

In construction, the pandemic has, among other things, meant faster growth because more of the economy is spent on “nice homes”. Delivery of goods and raw material supply is a major success factor but requires a flexible strategy in purchasing, logistics and price processing. How do you handle it based on real-time facts with a customer-oriented approach?
