Gothenburg, January 11, 2024 – Addnode Group AB, an international company with over 2,000 employees and a leader in the digitization of society, today announces the acquisition of Jetas Quality Systems AB. The purpose of the acquisition is to strengthen the customer offering within Public Transport and increase development resources to provide even better service to our customers.
Jetas Quality Systems AB is now a sister company to Forsler and Stjerna AB, which is Sweden’s leading software developer for planning public transport, school transport and traffic information. Forsler and Stjerna AB are best known for their outstanding product Rebus.
With this acquisition, Addnode Group AB and its subsidiaries, together with Jetas and Forsler and Stjerna AB, become the largest player in Sweden in the area of software for operation and planning regarding public transport. This enables a powerful collaboration and gives the companies the opportunity to benefit from their common strengths and resources.
“We are pleased that Jetas Quality Systems AB is becoming part of the Addnode Group family. This acquisition strengthens our position within Public Transport and gives us the opportunity to offer even more innovative solutions to our customers.” says Thomas Planhage, Founder of Jetas Quality Systems AB.
With Addnode behind us, we also get the opportunity to further develop our functions for property maintenance, such as e.g. error reporting and case management. We can now respond to increased demands from larger property owners, not least regarding integrations. This also gives us the opportunity to participate in larger public tenders.

Phase two of three in the pilot project for the development of quality-assured and more efficient work routines in public transport with the help of AI and ML has now been completed. Together with Chalmers Industriteknik, we have produced a successful ‘Proof of Concept’ (PoC).
We have evaluated the results and will now select a suitable partner for a 1-year pilot project to refine our technology and our algorithms.
After that we plan a European launch.
Excerpts from ElectriCity:
“Full-scale fully electrified bus traffic on several routes in Gothenburg, procurement of a record number of electric buses and countless tests. But also a broader scope focusing on, among other things, electrification of maritime traffic and construction sites, air quality studies and community planning. These are some of the results that came from the ElectriCity collaboration. ”
In addition to this, ElectriCity has also led to new collaborations, procurement and further research. Among other things, large procurements have been carried out by more electric buses to Gothenburg and collaborative projects on standardization of buses’ IT systems.We have received funding from the Västra Götaland region for a full-scale pilot project on optimizing work routines with the help of AI and ML in passenger traffic.In collaboration with Chalmers Industrial Technology, we have developed the software that is needed to start the project. This will be carried out together with Volvo Bus within the ElectriCity project with support from, among others, Västra Götaland region, City of Gothenburg, Västtrafik and Keolis.
On May 27, we deliver the pre-programmed hardware to Volvo to be installed on line 55, after which the tests will start immediately.
Saps has signed a new agreement with Skånetrafiken regarding the operation and maintenance of stops and stations throughout Skåne. The agreement extends over a five-year period with an option for a further two-year extension. The contract sum is estimated to amount to approximately SEK 50-70 million over the contract period. Saps has about 200 employees across the country.
From January 1, 2020, Saps will manage all bus stops in the Skåne region’s 33 municipalities using the JETAS METHOD.
Implementation and training of Saps staff will be ongoing during the fall of 2019.
In April 2018, JETAS has been awarded the Seal of Excellence certificate by the EU Comission. With this, the EU confirms our high product quality and business concept. Within the EU there are almost 30 million registered companies, of which very few have been certified with SOE. Now, JETAS Quality Systems AB can be spotted this exclusive list!
We are incredibly proud and happy about this award that will open new doors and ways for us in Europe.
We had the great pleasure to demonstrate our system, maintaining the relationship with already existing partners, but also create many new contacts and booked meetings in several Nordic countries. We promise to tell you more… (more…)
