To Norwegians, it’s a welcome sight to see the weekly ritual of the familiar orange trucks setting out to do their guardrail work on a Monday morning and returning on Thursday night after a successful week. Arvid Gjerde is one of the top guardrail providers in Norway and is known for its highly competent workforce — as well as the iconic orange trucks navigating the twists and turns of the country’s roads.
Arvid Gjerde has been working in traffic protection for over 40 years in Norway, specializing in the installation of road and bridge guard rails that keep roads and drivers safe. It provides installation services that meet the highest standards on quality and efficiency, while keeping costs low for customers.
The company started in 1972 with big ideas — and a back hoe! Today, its team is powered by an integrated, web-enabled Domino-based software infrastructure to manage all project management steps from initial sale to final installation. With several companies competing for the same projects in Norway, the business challenge it faces was to outdo the competition and win those projects based on high-quality service, efficiency, and cost.
“At Arvid Gjerde we like to say we are making roadways and bridges safer in Norway — and saving lives along the way!”
—Markus Brevik, CEO of Arvid Gjerde
The CEO is proud of the work his company does to effectively use its powerful toolset to convert customer prospects to clients and then successfully execute on those projects. Brevik attributes the company’s success to its loyal and competent employees, its highly equipped top-grade machinery, its comprehensive software, and its longtime partnership with HCL Business Partner, iSi. Together, these elements form the keys to its success.
