Kainuu Joint Authority
Kainuu Joint Authority is responsible for social welfare, healthcare and education services as well as general economic policy, planning and development for the Kainuu region in eastern Finland. The authority was looking to make daily data and financial administration routines easier with a single system that would help manage fixed assets throughout their life cycle. The decision was made to partner with 3 Step IT for the financing, administration and eco-friendly recycling of all fixed assets.
Before the authority was established, municipalities, schools and public corporations organised the financing and administration of their IT purchases separately, meaning that leasing agreements had to be signed with five different financiers. In addition, each administrative unit had its own asset register.
