About Us

It’s all about your customer

The world is becoming more digital by the second and customer expectations on brands to deliver great experiences across channels and touch points are growing faster than ever.

Through our teams we work with our clients’ internal structure and external marketing communications. We utilize a broad set of competencies and services with the common denominator of always aiming for world class customer experiences across the entire customer loop.

The customer experience loop

To achieve this we have gathered a number of agencies, each bringing a pioneering digital spearhead competence to the table. Our view is that the road to success is paved with the needs and wants of the customer. This has a profound effect on the way we approach our challenges.

Assuming the customer is always right, we are geared towards helping you fulfill their needs, from the first impression towards a lasting relationship with your brand.

We believe in collaboration, within our group, with you, your partners and most importantly with your customers. Knowledge left unshared is knowledge wasted. The only way to get things done is to share knowledge and knowhow and take the end customer on a journey to where they want to be.

Nordic Morning's year 2016

Customers’ needs were met by strengthening data and analytics services

Customers’ increasing needs for data and analytics services was met by acquiring a data management company CountQuest Interactive AB and by developing and recruiting talent in the area.

Consolidated net revenue was EUR 103.4 million (EUR 104.9 million). The Visibility & Service Design business area’s net revenue grew by over 20 percent. The decline in consolidated net revenue was primarily due to the restructuring of the printing business in Sweden and the contraction of the net revenue of the Content business area.

Operating profit was EUR -14.3 million (EUR -0.2 million). The operating profit included a substantially larger amount of non-recurring items than in the previous year at a total EUR -12.4 million (EUR -0.2 million). Operating profit was weighed down mainly by costs of one-time measures of goodwill in the Visibility & Service Design and Content business areas.

Operating profit excluding non-recurring items was EUR -1.9 million (EUR -0.1 million).

Equity ratio was 36.3 percent (48.6 percent).

Net cash flow from operating activities was EUR 3.5 million (EUR 0.5 million).
