Join the world of Scania on the Internet
As the first global truck manufacturer, Scania is launching its entire organisation on the Internet. From one place – Scania's homepage on the Internet – visitors have access to Scania’s importer companies and production facilities in more than 80 countries all over the world. The new concept is an important strategic tool for dynamic communication with and within Scania.
Scania's Internet web is now extended to include all of Scania's importers and production facilities worldwide. Each company will initially be represented by its name, telephone and telefax number. In the longer term, the intention is for every importer to set up a homepage within the worldwide Scania web.
"Scania is pioneering a brand new concept for dynamic and innovative communication inside and outside a global organisation," says Senior Vice President Lars Christiansson, responsible for Scania Communications and Public Affairs. "Web technology combines a user-friendly interface with a powerful and flexible communication tool.
"The Internet is the most efficient way of communicating and distributing information throughout the organisation and it has great development potential.”
Since October last year, Scania's homepage on the Internet has provided rapid access to new press releases, pictures, company information and financial reporting. Recent extentions are thesis work, student information and recruitment.
• The web address of Scania's homepage is: www.scania.com
