Our history

Azets is a new company – but with a great history.

Azets was established in 2016, as a result of the sale of the BPO Division from Visma. For years, we have successfully delivered accounting, payroll, HR, staffing and advisory services in the Nordic region.

Over time, we have developed a unique combination of experience, smart solutions and local presence. With 83 offices across the Nordics, we have gained detailed knowledge about local rules and regulations. 

Automation and robotization have created endless opportunities for our customers. Azets has utilized these principles in constantly developing new and user-friendly features. We have put a lot of effort into creating easy-to-use solutions for our customers.
