Telenor Shared Services (TSS), part of Telenor Group, one of the world's major

of Telenor's business units, with a subsequent phase rollout to additional
business units in Asia and Europe. Changepoint will be deployed as a shared
service in parallel to Telenor's other strategic SaaS applications -- Oracle
Financials and Workday. Changepoint will be integrated with these systems to
exchange project, financial and human resources information.
