Globally, 2022 was marked by the development of artificial intelligence, the world of crypto, and the cloud. At that time, the IT industry had to cope with the change in the form of work, the impact of the macroeconomic situation, and the globalization of the labor market. Small and medium-sized companies are the winners of the last months, as their recruitment processes have remained the same despite the recession. Now many employees feel safer there than in Big Tech, where it used to be unthinkable to hear about redundancies on a massive scale. Moreover, employers have understood that remote work is practical and does not limit them to hiring people from “the neighborhood.” Furthermore, opportunities have opened for valued specialists to work at the desired companies worldwide. And this also includes S5 Consulting.
In recent years, our company has undergone significant organizational changes. Starting the Swedish branch of S5 has led to more advanced dialog with clients and expanding the market. Jordan Ivanovski, Managing Partner at S5 Sweden, has focused on digitalizing manual processes, implementing digital processes, and process integration. Since we are growing, he has kept an eye on building a core team and concentrated on identifying the skillset we need to further the Swedish entity’s growth. For now, we have five colleagues working at the branch. It is also worth mentioning that the S5 team in Poland has grown from four to seven people, which makes the total number of S5’s employees change from 25 to 38 in 2022. We are working hard to build the best NexGen SAP consultancy company in the Nordics by 2027, with 100+ consultants.

More employees mean more capacity and hence more clients. The new collaborations have included S/4HANA implantation for Ranheim Paper and Board and automation and streamlining of internal processes for Vår Energi. Additionally, our team has worked on S/4HANA migration for a global manufacturer of advanced rolled aluminum products. We have supported a leading European energy company in Dynamics CRM integration, GDPR compliance, and Data archiving. Together with Nippon Gases, S5 has digitalized its supply chain operations with Fiori mobile apps.
