ABAX has had incredible growth over the last 10 years and has made several key personnel acquisitions from major competitors such as FleetMatics (now Verizon Connect). Today, ABAX are now announcing yet another new member which will strengthen their position in the market in integrations.

"We are happy to announce that Bjørn Brustad takes the role as Commercial Integration Manager, he and comes from 24SevenOffice were he was involved in establishing their footprint," says Per Christian Andersen, Director Indirect Sales Channels & Partnerships.

As customers place greater demands and higher expectations, ABAX has responded by strengthening its operations within integrations. This will be a complete solution for the customer.

New Commercial Integration Manager
Bjørn Brustad takes on the role as Commercial Integration Manager and becomes a bridge between the customer, the partner and the developers. In other words, an important strategic investment for ABAX. Brustad most recently came from the product department at 24SevenOffice, where he led a team of product owners bringing great software experience into ABAX.

"It is exciting to be involved in the development with commercial integrations. I am passionate about building one platform as an information source for the customer," Brustad says.

Information sharing is the future
ABAX has worked hard in recent years to improve its open API to be able to both receive and send information. Connecting several partners, sharing information and gathering several solutions under one roof is the future, the customer wants everything in one place.

Brustad goes on to say: "My job is to ensure that ABAX keeps progressing and that we keep responding quickly. In two years, we will be the natural point for partners to go to, to share information."
