Fujitsu renews IT services deal with Finnish bakery

Fujitsu Services FinlandFujitsu Services has announced it will continue to manage the IT infrastructure for Vaasan & Vaasan, the largest bakery business in Finland and the Baltic region, for the next three years.
The Finnish based Vaasan & Vaasan has expanded its IT services contract with Fujitsu to include printers and server capacity services.

Fujitsu‘s ‘Patja’ service manages over 400 of Vaasan & Vaasan‘s computers in 15 towns across Finland. Fujitsu is responsible for the support services, operation and development of Vaasan‘s IT infrastructure and operational applications.
The new agreement will also cover management of Vaasan‘s printing and mobile devices, server capacity, Mobile Professional and Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server.
Director of Vaasan & Vaasan, Vesa Moisio, said “IT has contributed in our ability improve our delivery reliability to a good level and to keep it there. However, the process is vulnerable and easily disturbed if the IT becomes flawed.”
Good IT infrastructure is of prime importance for Vaasan & Vaasan as the amount of bread it bakes each morning is based on orders placed during the day.
“As a whole, our six-year collaboration with Fujitsu has been a positive experience. Having the development and monitoring activities taken care by a partner, we’ve been able to focus particularly on resource planning and developing our repository system,” added Moisio.
Moisio also said that Vaasan & Vaasan had embarked on projects where Fujitsu’s servers provided application platforms for their sites in Sweden and the Baltic countries. “Scalability in these projects is a very valuable quality to us,” he said.
Fujitsu employs 2,300 people in Finland and the Baltic countries and posted net sales for 318 million Euros for Finland last year. Fujitsu Services Oy in Finland is part of the global Fujitsu Group, and with a network of 160,000 employees in 70 countries, is one of the largest IT services providers in the world.
