With just a few weeks until Christmas, we are now entering the most intensive shopping period of the year. It also means that e-commerce businesses are gearing up for their most important sales period of the year, starting with Black Friday on November 23. Web shops are trimmed and the stocks are filled up to their limits to be able to compete for our hard earned money.
As the new year unfolds, it is a great time to summarize learnings from the previous one. Last year, we at Intrum started a journey towards something new with our first external hackathon organized in collaboration with Tieto, IBM and Nordic Finance Innovation.
