Tieto, the leading software and services provider in the Nordic countries, and IFS, the global enterprise applications company, extend their existing channel partnership to increase focus on customer-centric services in the Finnish market. The collaboration, which combines Tieto's end-to-end service capabilities across diverse platforms and industries with IFS's agile solutions, will enhance customers' business capabilities and efficiency to increase the value they realize from their IFS investments.
Tieto will extend its channel partner activities for enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise service management (ESM) software solutions and services targeting medium to large corporations in the Finnish Market. IFS will strengthen its market position by leveraging Tieto's local expertise, customer base and global talent pool to serve customers with IFS’s leading solutions. An alliance with IFS empowers Tieto to better serve customers in diverse industries with IFS Applications™ and IFS Field Service Management™ (FSM) solutions.
"By extending the existing partnership with IFS, we’re able to boost our capabilities and serve our customers across different industries with IFS solutions. We aim to be our customers' first choice for business renewal, and expanding our partner ecosystem supports this strategic approach, " said Jaakko Tapanainen, Head of ICS Finland market.
“In May 2018 we announced a strategic alliance with Tieto, focusing on the Baltic countries. The expansion of the alliance into the Finnish market demonstrates the strong momentum already established and expected to continue as we move forward,” said Peter Muhonen, managing director for IFS in Finland. "Cooperation with Tieto improves our capability to sell and deliver IFS business solutions to Finnish companies operating in various segments.”
