Case study

ABAX, manufacturer of electronic triplogs, enters the Finnish market

ABAX, manufacturer of electronic triplogs, is starting operations in Finland.

The Norwegian company has grown strongly in the Nordic countries and is opening its office in Vantaa, with plans to hire about 30 staff during the next three years. ABAX’s electronic triplogs are suitable for businesses that have vehicles for work use, such as real estate, electrical industry or construction companies. With the help of electronic triplogs, companies can avoid laborious manual logging, achieve significant savings, and get the reports required for tax purposes directly and automatically from the system.

 

“ABAX has grown rapidly in the Nordic countries. In addition to Norway, we are currently operating in Denmark, Sweden and Great Britain, so it was natural to open the next office in Finland. We have had a really great reception here. Finland differs to some extent from the Scandinavian countries but our test sales have exceeded all our expectations,” says Finland Country Manager Håkon Grønn-Weiss.

 

The triplog solutions that ABAX is bringing to the Finnish market are already fourth generation products. The solutions are based on GPS tracking and they automatically record the movements of a company’s vans and lorries, for example. The electronic triplogs improve the company’s service level and boost efficiency because the vehicles can always be directed to the nearest work location, reducing unnecessary trips. The monitoring also reduces the trips made outside working hours. ABAX’s solutions can bring companies savings of up to 20 per cent in terms of fuel costs and working hours. The savings can reach tens of thousands of euros for a company with just five vehicles.

 

“ABAX makes everyday life easier for businesses. Once the device is fitted in a vehicle, the data transfers automatically to the systems and reports. Our product is ideally suited for Finnish entrepreneurs who want to make their operations more efficient,” says Grønn-Weiss.


ABAX’s investment in Finland was successfully carried out in record time, in just five months. This is thanks to Invest in Finland which assisted ABAX in finding premises as well as in networking.
