Elfskot is a young team on a mission. For some time there has been a realization that we have to “make something”. We find that at Elfskot as well. That is why we are developing the sales channel of 2020, with which we prepare companies for the new now. The now in which the customer expects more than ever to be served like a king.
In 2020, your customers expect even more customization, demand instant delivery and want to be served online. On this page you can read about the guys who are ready to make your business successful in these areas.
If we want to keep the economy rolling, we have to make full use of the manufacturing industry. For that we must challenge producers for new trends. We take our share, and therefore our mission is to become THE sales channels of the manufacturing industry.
In 2020, your customers expect even more customization, they want to be served online, expect instant delivery and they do not accept any errors. The Elfskot Product Configurator makes the manufacturing industry future-proof.
After studying (MsC in Operations and Supply Chain Management), Jan worked as an external consultant for several large and small companies. He is a catalyst for creative solutions and has an in-depth professional knowledge.
The manufacturing industry is through Jelle's veins. Early in his student days he managed to combine his turbulent student life with the most interesting jobs in various northern Dutch producers. When we came into contact with Jelle, he also showed a very interesting view on commercial activities of production companies. Curious on what that means for your company? Call him!
Johannes started out in the army, but when he became rebellious out of boredom, he had to leave the military. No wonder, because Johannes talks code, breathes code and sweats code. Quickly thereafter, he found his salvation as a programmer. As one of the founders of Elfskot, Johannes has laid the foundation of our Configurator as well as the artificial intelligence engine.
As a baby, Lars fell into a big pot of magic potion, brewed by the local druid from a can of zeros and ones. He reportedly published an open-source search algorithm on his third year of life, which later became known as "Google". Nobody knows where he hung out since then, but in 2017 he suddenly popped up as an applicant for Elfskot.
He studied computer science and reached out halfway through 2016 to the vacancy for an "enthusiastic jack of all trades that is a real team player". Boy, we were in for a surprise. He manages to work on no less than four laptops at the same time, knows a lot from everything and does the most complicated tasks "just in the meantime".
We never know for sure if Reinder is so clever by nature, or that he sneakingly has put a chip in his brain. The latter is plausible, because Reinder is our artificial intelligence specialist. But whether or not his abilities come natural or not, we could care less, because Reinder puts them in full use for the creation of our engine. And that paid off; No one can match our ease of use.
Johan feels a bit like our father. Johan is originally an engineer in mechanical engineering. Early in his career he switched to logistic management. He is responsible for several successful ERP implementations at different companies. Early in the beginning of his career he noticed the lack of good configuration software. Johan brings his years of experience to Elfskot and uses it to successfully implement our Configurator.
