Gothenburg based family-owned company Alektum Group, which helps companies with cash flows in financing, risk management and debt collection, has signed a partner agreement with mobile provider Tre. This is one of Alektum Group’s biggest deals ever and means that the company will support Tre with claims management.
The Gothenburg based family-owned company Alektum Group recently signed an agreement with the mobile provider Tre (www.tre.se, site in Swedish only). The deal is one of Alektum Group’s biggest deals so far, and the agreement runs for 2+1 years and includes the sister provider Hallon. Previous customers of Alektum Group include Klarna, Paynova and e-commerce company NA-KD.
The company’s turnover has increased in total by about 100 percent in four years – from SEK 350 million in 2013 to SEK 700 million in 2017. Alektum Group was granted finance licenses in 2017 for the Netherlands and Norway, which has created new business opportunities outside Sweden.
“We are experiencing strong growth and are extremely proud of this agreement, which is a breakthrough deal for us. Tre shares our philosophy and chose us because in the last few years they have decided to focus to a greater extent on better customer care. Our proactive way of working with tailored solutions for credit information and risk information, with its focus on preventing customers from being entrapped in debt, was decisive,” says Mats Augurell, CEO of Alektum Group.
Another decisive factor for the choice falling on Alektum Group was their extensive experience of debt collection and risk management.
“We have chosen Alektum Group because it is important for us to have a partner that is in agreement with us on the importance of the customer’s experience. It also suits us – as a fast-moving challenger on the telecom market – to have an innovative new entrant as a supplier,” says Fabrice Marseille, CFO at Tre.
