Our brand name Solwr reflects both who we are and what we do. We're a bunch of people who love to find answers to problems or difficult situations. This is the foundation for how we solve logistics challenges for our customers.
We strongly believe that software and automation complete each other. With a plug and play product portfolio in software and robotics, we offer what innovative players in the trade industry need to be one step ahead. We have some of Norway's largest retailers as customers.
We're about 100 colleagues - a fantastic group of project managers, developers in various technologies, engineers in automation, mechanics and robotics, support and delivery, as well as people with domain knowledge in logistics and retail.
Today, 1/3 of all groceries in Norway go through our systems.
In 2021, 59 of our employees registered a total of 1,617 hours of skills development.
Why are we in business?
We will build scalable, sustainable and integratable solutions - arisen from our culture of being innovative and close in our relations.
We're about 100 Solwrs right now - a fantastic group of project managers, developers in various technologies, engineers in automation, mechanics and robotics, support and delivery, as well as people with domain knowledge in logistics and retail.
The workday is a large part of our lives - so, naturally it's important for us to make it as enjoyable as possible. We want you to feel motivated, inspired and a part of a community. Solwrs can expect a constant development of products and employees, a minimum of one social activity each month, our own sports team, a variety of competence sharing such as 3D printing, learning days and VR.
A Solwr is a person who finds answers to a problem or a difficult situation.
Data Pro AS was founded by Per Egil Røshol and H.I. Giørtz in 1982 with 4 active customers in distribution - and only 1 employee.
Data Pro's 30th anniversary. The company changed it's brand name to Driw AS and launched the new product DriwKraft. It was the step between the "green screen" and Trace - our current ERP platform. DriwKraft had a new front-end that used the same data as before, and handled basic data, order, transport and stock.
Currence Robotics was established in 2016 by founder and current CEO Torbjørn Krogen and Olivier Roulet-Dubonnet, CTO. Together they developed the warehouse robots Sort and Grab.
We started to change the company's business model from an hour-based consulting business, to a software house where we deliver the standard solution in a Software as a Service model (SaaS).
The first installation of Trace, with solutions that cover the entire value chain, was in place - and all current clients onboarded to the Trace WMS solution in the following years.
Currence Robotics co-located with Driw in Gangstøvika, Ålesund.
When Driw and Currence Robotics got co-located in 2020, we quickly found out that both companies were doing exciting things on each ends. But the goal was the same. Solving logistics challenges for the trade industry. The choice was simple. We combined our forces, to become stronger together - with our new brand name, Solwr.
