Danzas ASG Eurocargo AB chooses Song Networks for its fixed telephony in Sweden In collaboration with a mobile operator and a switchboard supplier, Song Networks Holding AB's (Stockholmsbörsen: SONW) subsidiary Song Networks Svenska AB is supplying a voice solution which rationalises Danzas ASG Eurocargo AB's fixed and mobile telephony. The contract runs for 3- years, and the value for Song Networks is approx. SEK 36 million. For Danzas ASG Eurocargo AB, the fact that it is now getting a complete solution for all its telecommunication means a major cost saving. Danzas is connecting its switchboards to Song Networks' broadband network and is getting a joint voice solution for its 29 offices in Sweden. All the staff will be working towards one and the same solution, which amongst other things will improve internal call handling, as all the staff will be accessible via an abbreviated number. Internal calls will also be free. "To begin with, the solution will cover Danzas ASG Eurocargo in Sweden, and in the next stage other Swedish companies within Danzas. We are also established in Norway, Denmark and Finland, and will be reviewing the voice solution for these offices. The cost saving and the fact that Song has networks in the countries where we have offices were factors crucial to our choosing them as a supplier," says Jan Pettersson, Telephony Manager at Danzas IT Nordic/Baltic Countries, who has been responsible for the procurement. The solution also gives Danzas the possibility of improved customer service in that one can control incoming calls to specific answering positions, depending on the routing-code area the call comes from and the duration of the waiting time in customer services. And staff often outside the office can be connected via Mobile Extension - a service that makes the mobile subscription into an extension in the switchboard. The switchboard functionality is transferred to the mobile phone, and the user only needs one phone number and one phone. "It is very good news that Danzas is choosing Song as the operator for its voice solution. We will be directly connecting Danzas' offices to our Nordic broadband network with uniform accesses, and can thus offer free internal calls. This gives the customer a very cost-effective solution," says Mats Almgren, Song Networks' Sales Director.
