TeliaSonera signs extensive Managed Services deal with the Finnish Turvatiimi Oyj

TeliaSonera and Turvatiimi Oyj, the leading provider of security services in Finland, have signed a three-year Managed Services agreement. The agreement covers voice services and terminal devices and an extensive DataNet–based telecommunications solution.

Under the agreement, TeliaSonera provides Turvatiimi with a PBX service, e-mail, a Meridian PBX to the alarm centre and an external attendant service, as well as voice subscriptions and terminal devices. The DateNet-based telecommunications solution also comprises the management of local area networks and the Sonera Alerta services for interconnecting, remote-managing and automating the electronic surveillance systems of the various offices.

"Turvatiimi selected a service entity provided by a single supplier, TeliaSonera. Up until today, we have purchased voice and telecommunications services from various suppliers, and we wanted to switch over to a new, more easily manageable entity,” says Ismo Heikkonen, Managing Director of Turvatiimi Oyj.

“We operate as a service network throughout Finland, and decisions are made locally. We want that our offices will retain their local character even in future – and their local knowledge, which is often based on our long experience in the area. We are convinced that the agreement we have now concluded with TeliaSonera will boost our network’s operations between the customers, partners and us and within the organization as well,” says Ismo Heikkonen.

”We are happy to contribute our expertise to help Turvatiimi Oyj, the leading security company in Finland, to meet its target of improving its service and productivity. An example for this is our reachability-enhancing voice communications service in which Turvatiimi’s mobile phones are made an integral part of a PBX solution such that they are covered by the same PBX service,” says Markku D. Järvinen, Vice President of TeliaSonera’s Adapted Sales Finland.
