Leading IT services platform for Nordic SMEs

At the time of exit, Visolit was the leading supplier of Cloud Managed Services to small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) in Norway and Sweden, solving customers’ IT challenges through its technology agnostic one-stop-shop platform with a primary focus on application hosting and management, helpdesk services as well as digital transformation.

Visolit was acquired by IK Partners from Ferd Capital in March 2016. In August 2021, Visolit was acquired by Advania, a leading provider of corporate IT solutions and cloud services.

Our Value Creation Strategy

During our ownership, we worked alongside the management team to:

  • Optimise operations by strengthening the organisation, improving customer support and service as well as reinforcing existing infrastructure;
  • Re-position the company strategically towards a customer-centric approach with complete public, hybrid and private cloud offerings and additional vertical and advisory capabilities; and
  • Drive consolidation in the Nordics through the execution of a buy-and-build strategy.

Quote from the Client

“We are proud of what we have built at Visolit since 1997, with our position in Norway and Sweden. The combination with Advania as a leading player in the Nordics will allow us to provide the best offering to the combined customer base of this exciting new venture.”

Terje Mjøs, Chief Executive Officer, Visolit
