Headquartered in Oslo , the company is 15 years old, has approximately 500 employees, and has been publicly-traded since 2004 (MAMUT.OL). They currently claim approximately 400,000 customer accounts in 16 European countries.
Mamut’s strategy of focusing on European SMEs enables it to effectively pursue a growth market with significant potential for future SaaS and cloud-based offerings. It also puts the company at some risk of aggressive competition, including global SaaS providers.
