TietoEnator takes over the ÅF Group’s internal IT operations
24 January 2007 - The ÅF Group, a Swedish technical consulting company, has decided to hand its internal IT operations to TietoEnator. The agreement forms part of the ÅF Group’s strategy to focus on its core business, meaning that TietoEnator will be providing operational IT services and technical infrastructure for the ÅF Group. Around 20 people will move over to TietoEnator Processing & Network. The agreement comes into force on 1 February 2007 and will run for three years with an option of two more years. The value of the order amounts to around EUR 12.4 million (SEK 115 million).
During the first year of the agreement, the business will gradually be integrated into TietoEnator’s standardised service delivery. TietoEnator will also be carrying out a consolidation and centralisation of the business, while introducing new procedures and processes.
“This is another aspect of our focus on our core business, plus our IT costs will fall by twenty percent. TietoEnator has listened carefully to our wishes and we have the utmost confidence in them. They have also shown a strong focus on staff issues, which ÅF values,” explains Viktor Svensson, Director of Public Relations at the ÅF Group.
“The partnership supports the ambition of both parties to grow in the European market. ÅF is an IT-intensive and expanding company, which places great demands on the technical platform and its supplier. This is an exciting challenge and we see great potential for adding value to ÅF and at the same time rationalise the IT operations we are taking over,” comments Ronny Madsén, Sales Manager at TietoEnator Processing & Network.
