« Paradoxically as it sounds, it takes huge discipline and focus to escape the rules, like those who have touch in music improv or big mountain freeskiing!

As the AGENTIL entities around the world continue to thrive and expand after being in business for more than twelve years, Jean-François Lauri, founder and CEO of AGENTIL Group has decided to bring a new member to the team to help him conduct the company through its growth. A co-pilot, in a sense. Therefore, we will have the pleasure to greet Stig Wikberg as co-leader of the Group starting February 1st.
From physics to IT
Although Stig is originally from Norway, he spent the majority of his life in Switzerland and studied physics at the EPFL in Lausanne.
If the connection between physics and information technologies isn’t quite obvious just yet, it sure makes sense when you learn more about how Stig ended up working for IBM for ten years.
As soon as he got his degree, he decided not to pursue a career in that field. Luckily enough, big IT companies were looking to hire young people who had a physics degree because these studies were considered quite broad and mind-opening.
He then got two job offers, one from IBM and one from SAP. He took IBM’s offer in the blink of an eye, as it seemed more appealing and included a crash-course in sales in Paris.
A decade at IBM and two decades at SAP
During his decade at IBM, Stig held various positions, such as head of International Organizations, development director of SAP activities at IBM, head of a major account…
When he felt like he had explored all of his options at IBM, he decided he needed a change and ended up working for SAP as head of the French-speaking Switzerland branch of the company.
The SAP office of the French-speaking Switzerland was about the size of AGENTIL today (about seventy people) and Stig enjoyed the flexibility and freedom that came with the job. It meant he could make decisions for this branch of the company without having to suffer from the complex administrative processes that these big companies usually enforce. And his office’s success was proof enough that everything was working out for the best.
On an amusing note, he met Jean-François Lauri back then, who was working for HP at the time.
While he thoroughly enjoyed his work as head of the office, he didn’t like as much becoming general manager for consumer industries afterwards. He was still getting great results from his work, but he found himself missing some kind of spark and went back to a position in sales (specifically, to sell S/4HANA Cloud), which he found to be very interesting. However, after twenty years, it was time for a change.
A new start at AGENTIL
When Stig was offered by Jean-François to become co-leader of the AGENTIL Group, he found it to be a great opportunity. Of course, his experience in the IT department and particularly in the SAP world are going to be invaluable, but he very much likes to focus on the human and social aspects of AGENTIL’s development. What he thought lacked in his later experiences, he wishes to reinforce here. He definitely identifies with AGENTIL’s human values, such as trust, hard work, communication and being a sustainable company.
Also, one of Stig’s main focus is to help AGENTIL and its clients transition where the future lies, into the Cloud. Although Jean-François Lauri had already taken the decision to go forward with this transformation in the company, it’s a long but rewarding change that should further ensure AGENTIL Group’s customers’ success, as well as its own.
Finally, to welcome Stig properly, we would like to leave you on two of his favorite quotes from Richard Branson, which perfectly illustrate what he would like to achieve at AGENTIL :
« If you look after your staff well, they will look after your customers. Simple. »
« Train people well so that they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t. »

Yesterday night, like every single year since 2006, we planned a corporate event in our Geneva HQ to celebrate the holidays with our team members and their kids.
A little cocktail was catered and we had a few drinks (non alcoholic, of course) and some festive snacks.
But that’s not all! The whole office was rearranged: desks were moved, Ethernet cables were unplugged, a Christmas tree and ornaments were installed… Our marketing team had brilliantly planned multiple games for the children, such as a race track with our Mini Tesla (too cute!), Nerf games and magic tricks! The least we can say is, the kids had fun… and so did the adults!
Of course, Santa paid us an early visit and brought some gifts for each and every child present that day. This tradition is and always will be, close to our hearts. It creates lovely memories between our team members and their families, which is something we would love to perpetuate throughout the years.

This year, AGENTIL was present at the professional fair of the UNEP (National Union of Landscaping Companies) and, after exchanging with many landscape gardeners, we have realized that only a few of them were using new technologies to manage their companies.
However, from managing stocks and materials to automating quotes, and handling projects… construction companies aren’t short on solutions to digitize some daily tasks.
In order to support our claims, here are a few numbers found in an article from KPMG, that confirm the observations we made during the fair.
Integrating it in the company’s strategy?
Construction companies are slowly but surely realizing the importance of technological innovations in their industry. Proof of that is that, when asked, 78% of company owners are conscious that digitalization is going to be a big part of their work.
Business owners’ intentions go along with digitalization
But the assessment is quite clear: only a small amount of companies are fully equipped with adequate technologies!
« 62% of construction companies still work with reporting systems that require a manual intervention from one of their co-workers » says KPMG
Integrated systems, capable of exploiting the generated data, are present in only 8% of companies…
We think that this low rate of « equipment » in the construction industry comes from the gap between the work itself and the digital world. A lack of time and maybe of interest for these new technologies would explain the hesitations that some owners would have to jump the gun. However, this step is crucial to ensure the durability and development of the company!
If you’re still with us, we would like you to know that AGENTIL integrates management and mobility solutions, perfectly adjusted to very small businesses and SMBs in the construction industry. To learn more about what we can do for you, contact us or browse our Solutions' catalog.
