Fujitsu Wins IT Services and Digital Learning Solution Contract with City of Stockholm
- Fujitsu awarded contract by City of Stockholm to deliver Digital Workplace Services and its Service Desk solution to more than 108,000 students and teachers in 780 schools and preschools
- New services contract is part of the City of Stockholm’s vision to become the world’s smartest city by 2040
- Contract starts immediately and runs until end of 2023, with a possible extension until the end of 2029
The City of Stockholm awarded the contract to Fujitsu based on the proven high quality of its services, and close alignment with the city’s strategic goals. In particular, Fujitsu demonstrated a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges involved in creating a digital learning environment for Stockholm’s school system, and it presented the city with a future-proof solution.
Stockholm’s Digital Learning vision is to provide an inspiring environment for students and teachers, as well as meeting each student’s personal learning requirements, with technology playing a key role in achieving this. For example, the Fujitsu Social Command Center supports inclusivity by allowing end users to select their preferred channel for IT support – including phone, email, or an interactive self-service portal with chat functionality and a virtual chat agent.
Johanna Engman, Director of IT at the City of Stockholm, says: "We look forward to working with Fujitsu to launch next-generation IT services to Stockholm's pre-schools and schools. With this new technology support, the city of Stockholm is getting a digital uplift and will be able to provide new, equal opportunities for every child and student."
Conway Kosi, SVP and Head of Managed Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu EMEIA, comments: “Underlining its digital ambition, the City of Stockholm recognizes the crucial role played by next-generation Digital Workplace Services such as the Social Command Center, an integral part of Fujitsu Service Desk. By embracing and incorporating state-of-the-art technologies, powered by Artificial Intelligence, the City of Stockholm is sending a clear signal of its intent and taking significant steps towards becoming the world’s smartest city.”
