Altinn creates value
Time is money, as they say, and in 2012, as in the preceding years, most Norwegian business leaders confirmed that their business saved money by using Altinn.
Among other things, businesses spend less time filling in forms, there is a better work flow between enterprises and their auditors, and they spend much less time sending and receiving forms. A survey of business owners in Norway showed that 94% want to be able to find all official forms on Altinn.
Statutory reporting costs Norwegian enterprises NOK 54 billion every year, a figure the government has plans to reduce by NOK10 billion. As a digital solution, Altinn is part of the simplification effort that aims to create savings and thereby be of more benefit to businesses.
Since it started in 2003, 80 million digital forms and 36 million messages have passed through Altinn's message box. At year end 2012, Altinn contained 424 digital forms and services that as many as 3.4 million unique users had logged on to use.
