A big family
Despite that we are continuously growing we are a small and familiar company. Currently (June 2021) we are 25 coworkers. Our ambition is to retain this familiar feeling, community, and our flat organization structure in the future with a larger workforce.
Everyone knows the service
We are a team of competent people where all coworkers have some sort of technically oriented education in addition to experience from the world of IT. At Ongoing everyone are system developers and have extensive knowledge of the product. Beyond getting acquainted with our service, over time all coworkers develop towards individual areas of expertise depending on interests and skills.
Everyone is close to the customers
Ongoing is a customer-oriented company. All coworkers have contact with the customers while in parallel contributing to continuously developing our service. At Ongoing you will have a role where you face a broad range of challenges and will acquire a deep insight into the customers' needs. You will get familiar with the different IT businesses within the logistics sector that we collaborate with.
No departments or unnecessary managers
We believe in ONE tight team of educated and competent coworkers where everyone contributes and collaborates.
Responsibilities, contribution and individual freedom
All coworkers have their own responsibilities such as customer companies and/or other specialized areas of expertise such as integrations or market and sale. You have the freedom to plan your own working day and take care of your responsibilities but can always ask your colleagues for help.
Ongoing holds a strong position in the market and is in a good financial situation. We have good relations with our customers and partners that recommend us and thus helps us to grow further. We build our company and product step-by-step, year after year. All decisions and actions are based on a vision of a system that will remain for long. We do not have any short-term investors or venture capital that demands immediate revenue.
We know what we do (and not do)
We have a clear vision and business model that serves as a guiding star in our daily work with our Software as a Service (SaaS) product. We want to have the best service within our niche, Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), and to achieve our goal we collaborate with other IT businesses that make up for what we lack. We believe in focus and cooperation, not trying to by ourselves master everything.
In 2008 Gerhard Guron and Henrik Ekman, owners and active in the company, founded Ongoing Warehouse in a small room by Stena Center close to Chalmers. The first customer was Tranås Åkeri and they have remained so still after more than 13 years. Entrepreneurship and the will to continuously develop is a part of our culture, thereby the name Ongoing.
