Elematic Oy, supplier of machinery and equipment, production lines and complete production plants equipment for the concrete industry, continues its ICT service agreement with Fujitsu Finland Oy and carries on using Fujitsu’s Patja service with a new, modular IT service agreement.
Elematic started using Patja in 2007. Elematic’s main markets are in Asia, and in addition to Finland, the company operates in, for example, Russia, Germany, the United States, China and Dubai.
The service agreement covers helpdesk and support services, LAN maintenance and provision of server capacity as a service. It also includes Exchange e-mail and SharePoint communications solution. The implementation of Lync instant messaging is being planned.
”Cooperation has been running smoothly, and Fujitsu people have made good suggestions on improvement and development. Basic IT is important for us as a part of our operations, maintaining our competitiveness. Data amounts have grown immensely over the years; new solutions help us ensure the quick delivery of correct data all over the world,” says Eero Virtanen, Elematic’s CFO.
”Elematic is a forward-looking company with a dynamic and goal-oriented IT strategy. They always want to keep their IT up-to-date and bring in new solutions. When small investments are made systematically and continuously, major repairs that take a lot of time can be avoided. This strategy has also brought considerable savings,” says Antero Vuorio, Director, Regional Business Centers at Fujitsu Finland Oy.
The new agreement lends a more modular form to the Patja service. Basic IT and availability services are the core modules, which are complemented by services provided on a discrete basis, i.e. changing projects.
”This arrangement makes the service more flexible, as services are easy to activate and deactivate. Also their effects on pricing are clearer,” says Eero Virtanen.
