VINGE IT – SELF-SERVICE STRATEGIC SUPPORT WINNER 2014

November 04, 2014

The winners of the Self Service Awards 2014 gathered at Cirkus in Stockholm last Thursday. Self Service Awards is an annual awards ceremony for those enterprises which have been most successful in increasing the level of support and degree of efficiency of the support function within their organization using ComAround’s self-service solution.

The awards are divided into the following categories: Newcomer of the Year, Strategic Support, Migration and Self Service Star. In the Strategic Support category, which Vinge won, fourteen enterprises were nominated and ultimately the choice was between Vinge, the Swedish National Police Board and Volvia Försäkringar.

This year’s strategic support is awarded to the organization which, by virtue of a clear strategy, has succeeded in achieving or exceeding the stated aims of online self-service.  The strategy may be based on methods, frameworks or other distinguishing features. The aims have been clear and the result can be demonstrated by, e.g. customer benefit, customer satisfaction, good/increased use and/or ROI. The organisation may also have demonstrated improvement by changing its strategy or its method of working.

“It is very gratifying of course to win this year’s Strategic Support award,” says Ann-Marie Ovin, CIO at Vinge. Since the introduction of the self-service portal, Find-IT, at the end of 2012 we have been working strategically and methodically in trying to integrate this as a natural part of the support function. I think we have succeeded thanks to the work and significant commitment of Jenny Henriksson and Monica Gustavsson Asklöv. 

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.

REPowerEU – The European Parliament and the Council have assumed their standpoints

In May 2022, the Commission presented its proposal regarding REPowerEU. The purpose of the plan, which is based on the "Fit for 55" parcel , is to change Europe’s energy system by eliminating the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels as well as to tackle the climate crisis. The European Parliament and the Council have now adopted their positions in order to incorporate the plan into the national recovery and resilience plans.

Vinge authors the Swedish contribution regarding tax disputes for The Legal 500

International companies run the risk of the erroneous management of tax issues when conducting operations in several jurisdictions. In such event, disputes can arise with the relevant tax authorities. The Legal 500 has now introduced a dedicated chapter on tax disputes in its comparative guide for the first time and Ulrika Bengtsson, advokat and counsel, has been selected to provide a clear picture of the Swedish tax litigation system.
