SolunoBC makes a flying start in Finland – acquires a platform and starts partnership with Taika Company
After having established itself in Denmark and Norway, Soluno Business Communication is now also taking the step into Finland and onto Åland. The company is doing this by acquiring a platform from Taika Company, which specializes in cloud-based solutions. The acquisition gives a flying start in the new markets.
SolunoBC is purchasing Taika's Mitel license stock, platform and infrastructure and will take over operation of the cloud services. The acquisition means that the company has a ready installed and fully functioning system with ready routed transmission from the start.
Taika becomes SolunoBC's wholesale partner on the Finnish market and will also have the commercial responsibility for the customer stock.
Andreas Johnsson, COO and Wholesale Manager at SolunoBC, is very pleased with the solution.
"The acquisition of Taika's license stock and system shortens the start-up stage from a purely technical point of view, but more importantly we have an experienced partner in place with an open partner channel from the start. Growing with wholesale partners is completely in line with our growth strategy for markets outside Sweden", says Andreas Johnsson.
SolunoBC takes over operation, technology and also acts as second line support. The company will also support and develop Taika and their partners with training and experience of running this type of operation, which gives great added value to Taika and their customers who use and sell the service today. The acquisition also means that there are great opportunities to expand the network of dealers in both the Finnish and Åland markets.
Pasi Sampakoski, CEO at Taika Company, sees great benefits in the partnership.
"With SolunoBC's long experience and success in Sweden, I believe that together we can create really good service and strong growth in Finland and on Åland. That they are taking over operation of the platform and the technology with all their expertise creates huge added value", says Pasi Sampakoski.
