I have known Bobby and Rasmus for many years and I am truly impressed of their work on SmartWeb. Not many people know more about e-commerce in the Nordics than Bobby, Rasmus and the skilled employees in SmartWeb, so it was only natural – and in perfect accordance with Combell Group’s growth ambitions – to make a move when the opportunity arose/
