Dataplan Relocation AS
Dataplan is a group of 6 companies based on the south-west coast of Norway close to Stavanger. We work within accounting, payroll, IT, ERP-systems, CRM-systems and recruiting. The group website is on http://www.dataplan.no, and the text there is also available in English albeit in a reduced fashion in comparison to the Norwegian site.
We have about 800 corporate clients in Norway, and about 10-15 international clients.
Who we are: We are right above 50 employees spread across three offices. The employees are mainly Norwegians, some with an economic education, some with IT-education and some with both. Our values are Quality, Competence, Innovation, Presence and Responsibility. More detailed information about this is available on http://www.dataplan.no/index.cfm?id=247504
I who write this is the contact person for three of the companies, amongst others Dataplan Relocation AS.
The culture of the company is young, vibrant, very competent and with a very good sense of humour. We set our pride into giving our customers the very best help they can get within any field, making sure that we are always customer-centric, not product-centric.
Norway is an oil-producer, with several offshore-platforms and with many oil-companies present in Stavanger and along the West-coast of Norway. Norway exports oil and gas to several European countries as well as the US.
There is a continuous need for well-qualified people, and many people come from the UK, Germany, Poland, India to take up positions within Norwegian companies, or international companies working in Norway.
The norwegian tax-code and the norwegian legislation is complex, and there are many requirements to a person who is to enter Norway, as well as for the company that is to employ the person. In addition, there are many things which any foreigner could need help with - like finding housing, getting a bank-account, get assistance with immigration papers, get integrated into a network of international expats and everything which surrounds life and work. This is where this company comes in: Dataplan Relocation. It is created for employees that are to enter Norway, as well as for companies (especially in the petroleum sector) that need employees from abroad.
The companies in the oil-sector would mainly like to have all the details of the relocation sorted out by somebody. By us. And this is where the website comes in. It needs to prove that we are the right choice.
As we already have a website up and running, http://www.dataplan.no - we need to base the new site on this image. http://www.dataplan.no will be the house for most of the companies in the group. Dataplan Relocation will be in the group, but we will have it on a separate domain-name and as a separate entity. It needs to be clear though that it is part of the same group, and the same logo. The default language will be English, but we need to have support for multiple languages. We will target English, German, French, German, Spanish and Portugese. It is a possibility we will expand the company to other countries.
On the overseas-moving, we especially like the changing images.
It is important to keep the logo pretty much inline with existing logos, so I will attach some examples that we have today. We have a simple group-logo and several sub-company logos.
