"We want our customers to be able to enjoy the best and most secure experiences in the world. State-of-the-art technology has an increasingly important role in these experiences,” says Sasha Laitinen, Financial Director at Baltic Yachts, one the world's leading manufacturers of luxury yachts.
New technology, new services
Currently, Baltic Yachts is using Telia’s voice and data solutions for maintenance and troubleshooting.
