Atea wins frame agreement with Norwegian public health sector

(Norway) Atea has been awarded a frame agreement for delivery of collaboration solutions to the public health sector in Norway. The agreement has an estimated value of approximately NOK 200 million over the next 4 years.

The agreement covers products and services related to collaboration for voice, video and messaging, including hosting of related infrastructure.

"Atea is the leading provider of collaboration solutions within Norway and the biggest IT supplier to the public health sector," says Steinar Sønsteby, CEO of Atea. "Winning this frame agreement is a recognition of our competence in this area. We look forward to providing efficient and modern collaboration solutions, and creating value for the public health sector in Norway."

"Atea won the frame agreement competing against three other suppliers," says Håkon Grimstad in Norsk Helsenett (the public health sector's IT procurement department).
