Fujitsu Finland Oy will deliver a NetCommunity communications solution to the city of Espoo. In the initial phase, it will host Espoo's external website. The service agreement also incorporates support services for end-users and content providers as well as server space as a service.
The city of Espoo is the second largest city in Finland.
On Monday, 13 February, the espoo.fi website will be re-launched with all new design, structure, content and technical platform. The structure of the site is lighter. Unnecessary pages have been taken out, key information has been brought closer to the main level, and the previously used formal and rigid language has been made more approachable. Desired content is easy to find. The search engine allows you to search for information based on a certain topic, target group or geographical region, for example. Moreover, the search capabilities of the event calendar have been enhanced.
Also the intranet of the City of Espoo will be migrated to NetCommunity during the spring 2012.
"Being the first phase in our developing the new electronic access services, the improved website will support our interaction with the people who live in Espoo. We recognise the importance of listening carefully to the feedback and wishes we will receive on the new website,” says Communications Director Satu Tyry-Salo of the City of Espoo.
"The project was launched in spring 2011 after a public bidding process. Our requirements were best met in Fujisu's price and quality,” says E-service Programme Director Marke Kaukonen of the city of Espoo.
The Oma Espoo service (My Espoo) will be of better service to people as it now gathers the electronic services of a signed-in user smartly to one view. Espoo.fi will be available as a mobile version as well.
The Finnish espoo.fi site has approximately 300,000 monthly visitors with more than 1,5 million page views. The website is Espoo's most important communications channel. In connection with the NC deployment, Fujitsu's Trim skills coaching team trained some 400 content providers.
The collaboration of Espoo and Fujitsu has continued for almost a decade. Currently the contract covers Patja ICT infrastructure services for circa 13,000 users.
