Norwegian Nurses Organisation
inlumi was hired to implement a planning and budgeting solution and streamline the existing planning and budgeting process for the Norwegian Nurses Organisation.
Norwegian Nurses Organisation (Norsk Sykepleierforbund), NSF, is Norway’s nationwide trade union of nurses, certified nurses, specialist nurses, midwives, and nursing students. NSF works for the interests of its members, including items such as terms of wages, working hours, employment, and pension rights. It is Norway’s fourth largest trade union with over 108,000 members.
inlumi was hired to implement a planning and budgeting solution and streamline their existing planning and budgeting process.
Upgrade or replace the nurse union’s existing planning and budgeting solution that had become unstable
Streamline and simplify NSF’s planning and budgeting process, and minimise system downtime
Implement a planning and budgeting solution to better achieve the association’s strategic goals, for example determining members’ wages
Improve the basis for mission-critical operational and tactical decisions through enhanced financial analysis and reporting
Lower the costs of operation and management of the planning and budgeting solution, and free up resources for the IT staff that could instead be used to develop the solution
Oracle Platinum Partner inlumi Norway helped us implement the solution. The existing infrastructure was integrated into the new solution, and the entire process from the very first meeting to go live was only 4–5 months. inlumi has also helped us on other levels, such as how to use the solution as a strategic tool.

Implemented Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service and successfully streamlined, sped up, and simplified the planning and budgeting process, making great time savings in the process, and minimised the risk of downtime
Improved the basis for the management team’s mission-critical operational and tactical decision-making through the cloud solution’s improved analysis and reporting capabilities, for example in terms of the membership development
Made it possible to use the cloud service as a tool to better achieve the association’s strategic goals, for example when it comes to members’ wages, and the administration of the association’s assets
Created a stable foundation for further development of the planning and budget process on account of Oracle’s continuous upgrading and development of the cloud solution
Freed up resources for the IT staff, who no longer have responsibility for the operation, maintenance, and updates of servers, which can instead be used to develop the planning and budgeting solution—and made savings of around $25,000 a year as investments in hardware are no longer needed
We have 50 users of Oracle EPM Cloud and they can all testify to the fact that budget work is now done faster and easier than before. A great benefit is that we can use it as a tool in our strategic activities.
