Tapiola selects Tieto as its partner for developing internet services


Tieto and Tapiola are starting a new, jointly run internet journal development project to standardize the technical environment and applications of Tapiola’s internet journals, forming a single entity. The reform will include Tapiola Group’s Sijoitustalous (Investment Finance) and Oma Talous (Own Finance) internet journal sites. The first phase,, will be completed by February 2012. The project replaces part of the publishing system of Tapiola’s internet services and sites.

“Tapiola has made significant investments in electronic communication and paper-free service. Using internet journals we can provide more relevant communication and serve customers’ information requirements quickly and flexibly. In the same context, we will discontinue the paper journals, which will bring us real savings. Our aim is to provide an improved reading experience on the internet, for which the technology delivered by Tieto provides a very good starting point,” says Jyrki Antikainen, Communications Director, Tapiola. “The solution also supports the principles of sustainable development in accordance with our strategy.”

“Internet services have a central role in the finance sector, especially for customer interaction. The new internet journals, in combination with other internet development projects, will improve the efficiency of Tapiola’s interaction with its customers. We have extensive experience in implementing similar internet ecosystems and we will provide unique expertise for this joint project,” says Jussi Grönholm, Vice President, Financial Services, Tieto Finland.
