18-03-19 14:57 | About Nordea | Awards

Nordea First Card was awarded the Best Payment Provider for corporate travel management during the Nordic Business Travel Awards 2018. Nordea First Card is closely linked to the business travel industry, and by the technical integration we make the travel management process easier and more effective for customer companies, travel agents and suppliers. 

Through our KAM’s profound understanding of the companies’ needs, we are able to simplify and improve the processes, something which is confirmed by the award. Nordea First Card was the only supplier who reached top 3 in more than one category: Best Payment Provider for corporate travel management and Industry's best Sales / KAM / AM department.

- Many of our largest commercial card and travel account customers are members of the Nordic Business Travel Association, and the fact that they have voted for us shows not only how strong our value proposition is in this specific segment, but also how important it is to stay close to our customers, says Jesper Ramsö, Nordic Head of CM & Cards Sales. This award rests entirely on the shoulders of the Commercial Cards Sales team who has inspired both customers and colleagues with their passion and competence. We have the competence, agility and tool set needed to provide our largest customers with an excellent travel management process. Our growing travel account volumes provides further proof of our strength within the business travel segment. The road to our next-generation value proposition still lies ahead, and we have a lot to do in order to meet the targets in the Commercial Cards Roadmap and to become equally strong in the other customer segments.

- CM & Cards Sales are giving evidence of both passion, courage and collaboration by continuing to strengthen our relationships with our largest customers, says Lars Boström, Head of Cards. And by adding the ownership point of view, this award makes me proud of how we manage to remain relevant on our volatile market place. We still need to improve our value proposition towards the rest of Nordea’s customer, and the list of initiatives and ongoing development is long. In the near future we have the ambition to see our products and services create the same customer experiences for all our customers.
