Kruso as developing partner for Frederikshavn kommune

Frederikshavn Kommune is situated overviewing Kattegat. As a platform for all citizens in Frederikshavn, Skagen, and Sæby the municipality has as vision of making it simple for the citizens to find relevant information and news about events, activities, politics, citizen- and economic situations etc. in the city. That is why the municipality started the process of mapping out how their new website should look and what functions it needed.

On the previous website,, the municipality faced a series of issues. First of all, the previous website was filled with a lot of unnecessary data. Also, the website was confusing for both the web editors and visitors because of the many site with lack of structure. For that reason, Frederikshavn Kommune started creating a clear vision for the new The content had to be short, specific, and clickable making it easier for the citizens to navigate and find exactly what they would be looking for. The main wish of optimizing content became the beginning of the project. Frederikshavn Kommune was responsible for the optimization of content – but as they needed a more user-friendly platform, Kruso joined the project taking on the developing role.


Kruso became Frederikshavn Kommune’s developing partner responsible of creating better user experience for both visitors as well as the web editors. Kruso’s developing- and UX/Design team developed and implemented the improved website for Frederikshavn Kommune. In order to meet the specific demands, Frederikshavn Kommune also chose to join Kruso’s Development Community, OpenPublic Web. As a member of OpenPublic Web it is much easier for municipalities to share knowledge, costs, and problems with other municipalities and Kruso for instance regarding GDPR.


In April 2018 the new went live, and the municipality expresses their satisfaction with the solution and website. Today, they specifically appreciate the opportunity to preview content before publication on different devices. Further, Frederikshavn Kommune has been working with Kruso’s project leader, Marie Odgaard, throughout the process and they are in regular contact with Marie in their daily work.

“The teamwork and collaboration between Frederikshavn Kommune and Kruso has work at an optimum level. We are fully satisfied with both the developing process as well as the project leadership. We have especially appreciated Marie as out project leader. She is always available, and she has been incredibly helpful even in the busy periods. All together, we are glad to have Kruso as our developing partner.”
