Warehouse truck manufacturer Rocla Oyj and IT services provider Fujitsu Services have entered into an agreement whereby Fujitsu will assume the responsibility for Rocla's IT infrastructure services. The agreement also covers collaboration in the development and design of an application environment. Four IT professionals will transfer from Rocla to Fujitsu.
Fujitsu's Patja service will cover Rocla's 320 workstations and the monitoring and management services for a local area network and some 40 servers. Fujitsu's Sohva partnership model will be applied in developing and designing Rocla's application environment. The fundamental goal of the comprehensive and long-term partnership is to support the company's business in the best possible way through enhancing and developing Rocla's operative applications and related services.
"We based our decision to partner up with Fujitsu on its overall competence. It's important to have reliable IT infrastructure and daily support, but we find it equally as important to develop future processes and applications together with an expert organisation", says Vice President Juha Mikkonen from Rocla.
Start-up projects of both the Sohva and Patja services are already in process. The services will all be up and running at the beginning of 2007.
