Nord Østerdal Kraftlag chooses Quant!
Nord Østerdal Kraftlag has signed a contract with Rejlers Embriq for the purchase of the Quant smart grid platform supplied as Software as a Service (SaaS). A contract for the supply of Quant Flow for the handling of metering values for Elhub has also been signed.
“Rejlers Embriq and Quant are the right choice for us and we believe it makes sense to buy Quant as a service,” says Net Manager at Nord Østerdal Kraftlag Torgeir Leet Halvorsen.
“We have previously purchased AMS infrastructure from Rejlers Embriq and know this supplier well,” he says.
“Digitalization and change are key to our journey going forward, and we have been working on putting solutions in place that are capable of handling large data volumes efficiently. We also need flexibility to meet the demands of the future – we get all this with Quant as a service,” says Halvorsen.
Approach to excellent functionality
“We are convinced that this is the way forward when acquiring IT solutions,” explains Director of Software at Rejlers Embriq Espen Kåsin.
“We believe that our services offer a very competitive solution compared to standard acquisition models,” says Kåsin and continues: “In this way, customers gain access to excellent functionality and expertise for a small investment which ensures high cost-efficiency and low risk.”
