Tieto brings Microsoft public cloud based voice services to Nordic customers
Tieto has joined Microsoft´s Skype for Business and Cloud based voice partner program. The extended partnership means that Tieto can now bring public switched telephone network connections to Microsoft Office 365 services in the Nordics, enabling higher productivity, significant cost savings and flexible ways of working for customers.
Tieto is one of the biggest Skype for Business service providers in the Nordics, with approximately 250 000 end users. Currently, about 10 percent of these are using voice services with public switched telephone connections. With the new partnership, Tieto will be able to offer and deploy Microsoft´s public cloud based voice services to customers across the Nordic countries, including technical implementation, trouble shooting and service desk.
- We are very happy about strengthening our ecosystem with the extended partnership with Microsoft. Public cloud based voice is a game changer globally and there is a major transformation ongoing in the market, with software and service providers to larger extent claiming the role traditionally covered by tele-operators. Cloudification is a key element in more efficient and flexible ways of working, helping customers to renew their business, says Sari Aumo, Head of Strategy and New Business in Tieto´s Microsoft and Productivity Platforms unit.
With the company´s vast experience as a major Unified Communications service provider, Tieto can now offer voice services as a part of a holistic solution with full service and global delivery capability. As an official Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider, Tieto can bring customers the whole package, licenses included, across the Nordic countries.
- Mobile first and cloud first – we will bring all products into the public cloud, and Cloud based voice is one step towards that goal. Tieto´s experience, customer know-how and delivery capabilities will help our Nordic customers change the way they collaborate and do business, says Sarita Kamppinen, Senior Business Development Manager, Microsoft.
The new voice services based on Microsoft Office 365 are an addition to Tieto's growing portfolio of digitalization and cloud services. Cloud business has been the fastest growing area in Tieto, and currently Tieto is the largest cloud service provider in the Nordic countries.
