Following a successful buy-in at the end of October 2019, Varda Capital became the majority shareholder in Wise Solutions ehf.  With around 75 employees, Wise provides software solutions for many of the country’s largest organizations in many sectors, including local government, fisheries, finance, manufacturing, trade and various specialist services.

The new owners have reshaped the management of the company, and the new company chairman is Jonas Hagan Gudmundsson. Plans are being implemented to merge Hugbunadur, Centara ehf. and Wise Solutions ehf. under the Wise Solutions brand. Negotiations are also underway to bring in additional investors, which will strengthen the company for further growth.

Technological revolution in vessel operation

To begin with, we must examine the desired results. This can be extremely difficult, as the speed of technological and software development has been extremely fast over the past fifteen years. With increased demands for quality, utilisation and value creation, processing plants are becoming more developed; technical equipment, the adoption of robots and software solutions are becoming an integral part of the processing of seafood products in Iceland. “One can say, without any doubt, that there has been a technological revolution in seafood operation and the processing of seafood products that has helped the Icelandic fishing industry to become a leader in this field. Icelandic fish processing plants are high-tech, and the fleet is equipped with cutting-edge technical equipment for its operations,” says Jón Heiðar.

Can access more information about the operation

Jón Heiðar adds that the digital transformation in the fisheries sector have been ongoing for some time. A lot of things have changed over the course of the thirty years that WiseFish has been developed, and it can be said that with the enormous progress that has been made in software design, technology has solved and is still solving complicated aspects within the business environment through automation and by reducing the amount of duplicated efforts and repetitive processes.

Companies gain a new insight into the operation

Jon Heidar Palsson

In a world of ever-increasing competitiveness, gaining an advantage is based on utilising the latest software technology to ensure better and more dynamic processing of data to facilitate decision making and ensure the best success in operations at any time. It has never been more important to update machines, networks and software. Wise Cloud Solutions, together with the latest software versions, is the key to achieving better results and becoming a competitive success.

The WiseFish team will be at the Icelandic Seafood Conference, 7-8th of November 2019.

The idea behind the Seafood Conference is to create a platform for everyone who is part of the seafood industry in Iceland to meet and exchange views. It includes those who are active in harvesting, farming, primary processing, further processing, marketing and sales, services, research, and development as well as the public sphere, teachers and students, media and other interested parties. 

The Seafood Conference is a forum where people meet, establish new contacts, strengthen current ones and increase cooperation. During the conference, important subjects are analysed and discussed with the hope of creating new ideas that motivate and lead to innovations and improvements.

The program can be found here.
