I am always chasing the optimal customer journey! As a customer myself, I know how much I appreciate suppliers that have good products and services – but at the same time are transparent, have great digital tools and are digitally present and show me they are human. These feelings are why I founded KOGGER – so we could help your organization, achieve this too. I’m responsible for our workshops, videos and keynote speeches. Everything we do, we do for you! So, feel free to call me at any time, or chat here on our website, and I’ll do my best to help you in any way I can. I’m married to Leah and we have two beautiful daughters, a great son in law and a cat😊

Ever since KOGGER was established,  Oscar has talked to me about his customers, visions and ideas. In 2017 I started to create some of our content and help out with advising customers on using websites to create better customer relationships and  humanize organizations. Another thing I do, and that’s not in my job description – I disagree with Oscar when he needs to hear a different point of view! As Oscar mentioned, we are married (and have been for almost 30 years), have two beautiful daughters, Tamarah and Cornelia who is married to our son-in-law Marius and we also have a cat called Larsen😊

I am a certified dental assistant but was also responsible for marketing, at my previous job. I love helping customers! I really enjoy taking and editing pictures and keeping up with how you can use Social Media to reach your audience and not only grab their attention – but keep it. I help KOGGER with our Social Media accounts and pictures for our website, in addition to helping our customers do the same. I enjoy helping our customers schedule and amp up their Social Media presence and would be privileged to help you too! Oscar and Leah are my parents, and even though I’ve moved away from home, I still feel like the cat is still mine😊

KOGGER AS was established by Oscar Hovland in May 2014, in pure frustration!

“In 2013, as a founder and CEO of a company with 30 employees, I felt the time had come for our company to move mail out of our unstable Exchange mail-server in to a cloud data-center. Our development department had already started to use Azure as a test-platform for our software development and on my home front, I had bought and installed Office 365 for my wife and 2 daughters and loved the stability and the fact that all units were synchronized!

How difficult could it be to buy Office 365 for my employees and our organization? – VERY DIFFICULT!

My existing IT-department didn’t have enough knowledge about Office 365 and I had to resort to Google and Internet, just like I had done when buying my private licenses. But this time my customer journey was totally different! Why didn’t I find, online, Office 365 prices for companies? Why was every IT-partner I contacted, trying to complicate and problematize our existing situation and the implementation of Office 365? Why couldn’t anyone tell me why I SHOULD’NT buy the licenses from Microsoft’s homepage?

In pure frustration, I swiped my company credit card on Microsoft’s 365 homepage – AND THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS GOING TO WORK OUT GREAT!

But it didn’t work out great. In a way the IT-partners I had talked to, were right all along – this was anything but easy! Some surprising questions suddenly popped-up. How was I supposed to find good arguments to convince our board and co-owners  that the cloud was better than “steel on the ground”? How could we organize the implementation and migration of existing data? How could we handle long file names when migrating to SharePoint? How could we train our employees? How should we organize access? How could we, in our organization use Office 365 in the most effective way?

Where could I find the answers to these questions? – FROM MODERN PARTNERS

Chance would have it, that I was given the opportunity to express my frustration at a management seminar at Microsoft during the spring of 2014. My own customer experience journey was then used when collaborating with Microsoft to make our first KOGGER workshop in 2015. Since November that year, KOGGER has cooperated with Microsoft and their distributors in Scandinavia and held more that 160 workshops, many seminars and thus met more than 1100 fantastic technology-interested decision makers who have all identified the same need – the need to simplify a value proposition and simplify the customer journey for customers searching on the internet. In the past year KOGGER has widened our perspective because we have experienced that companies in general, and not only IT partners, can benefit by having us come in from outside their organization and help them succeed in creating amazing customer journeys”.
