Aino Health launches operations in Sweden – Stockforsa Invest with 500 employees as first customer

Aino Health launches operations in Sweden after conducting the IPO. Stockforsa Invest with 500 employees is the first pilot customer to use Aino HealthManager and Aino HealthDesk.

Stockforsa Invest has chosen Aino as partner in providing a complete platform solution to better analyze and manage preventive health care. Using the Health Management-platform from Aino Health, Stockforsa Invest anticipates increasing profitability and competitiveness in various companies within the Group.

Stockforsa Invest Group consists of several companies with different activities within the engineering industry and life science with more than 500 employees.

An important factor in achieving the Group’s business objectives is that all employees within the Group receive professional help in managing sickness absence and preventing risks that may affect the working ability.

“Our employees are our most important resource in order to deliver the best, safest and most sustainable solution to our customers in all our segments. Being able to give our employees the opportunity to receive professional help when they are sick while our companies, through Aino Health’s work process and tools, will be better equipped to manage sickness absence problems is for us the main reason why we chose Aino as partner. Aino Health’s services will also be an important part in the Group’s sustainability work with the new duties we imposed under the EU directive that will apply from 2017. The fact that increased presence also leads to increased profitability and competitiveness is a win-win situation for all parties”, says Lars-Göran Håkansson, the owner of Stockforsa Invest AB.

“I am very pleased with the trust we have received and that we have gotten the opportunity to help Stockforsa Invest to manage the entire value chain in Stockforsa’s corporate health. Our products HealthManager and HealthDesk and all related services, processes and procedures related to the training of managers will be included”, says Jyrki Eklund.

This is the first order in Sweden since Aino Health was listed on Nasdaq First North. We will set up a call center for HealthDesk in Sweden and we are now turning to state- and municipal organizations, service companies and the manufacturing industry with our offer. Aino Health contributes to cost savings and operational efficiencies and enhanced profitability and competitiveness by introducing health management as a daily tool.
