The result – Itello’s annual customer survey
Each year, Itello conducts a survey to find out more about customer perception of our business as well to identify areas that we can develop and improve. Our customers answered questions about Itello, our employees, our support and our services and deliveries. For each participant, we also donated 100 SEK to the Swedish Children's Cancer Foundation.
Itello embrace the disruptive pension paradigm shift in Norway
With the introduction of the disruptive Norwegian reform Egen Pensjonskonto to be launched in January 2021, 1.5 million white-collar employees will be empowered to choose which company that will be entitled to manage their accrued pension savings. Itello will provide solutions both for the incumbent life insurers providing occupational pension and to the challengers offering to manage the savings.
