Tieto digitalizes Region Blekinge’s document and case management with new cloud service

Tieto digitalizes Region Blekinge’s document and case management with new cloud service

Tieto has signed an agreement to digitalize Region Blekinge’s document and case management system with a new cloud-based service. The digitalization will result in faster, more efficient and more flexible information management and will pave the way for Region Blekinge’s integration into the Blekinge County Council in 2019. 

”This solution will help us streamline our operations. To be able to find relevant information quickly and easily will make a huge difference for us, especially considering our fairly small team. Now our staff won’t have to waste precious time on searching for information to the same extent as before. At the end of the day, our renewed document and case management will enable us to do our job more efficiently and provide the people of Blekinge with better services,” says Ingrid Ljungqvist, administrative director at Region Blekinge.

The new solution, Public 360°, will initially be used by Region Blekinge administrators and project managers but its use may eventually be extended to cover also decision-makers working on political issues within the organization.

The deal also includes an option to add a digital meeting functionality which will make it easier to set up and manage meetings – from creating invites to keeping, and distributing meeting records. Up until now, this has been managed manually.

”This is part of our modernization and digitalization process and will facilitate our future integration into the county council, which already uses Tieto’s document and case management system,” Ingrid Ljungqvist says.

The cloud-based service builds on Tieto’s Public 360° solution – a standardized solution for document-, case- and archive management – to which some 600 Nordic public sector organizations subscribe today. Under the deal with Region Blekinge, Tieto will operate, monitor and manage the organization’s backup and ensure that the solution is always equipped with the latest updates.

“We’re very pleased and honored that Region Blekinge has trusted us to provide them with this solution. It’s a strategically important deal because it confirms that it is not only possible for public sector organizations to store data in the cloud, but it will also make it much easier and more efficient for them to manage the information. This is the future,” says Mats Brandt, Head of Public Sector at Tieto Sweden.

UPM Biochemicals targets to enhance its global market reach and business agility through new B2B eCommerce solution by Tieto

UPM Biochemicals targets to enhance its global market reach and business agility through new B2B eCommerce solution by Tieto
UPM Biochemicals has chosen Tieto to deliver an eCommerce solution to improve its global marketing and sales through enhanced online experience. The solution is based on Tieto Commerce Cloud, a service for omni-channel marketing, sales and service, built together with the microservices-based commercetools platform.

UPM Biochemicals develops innovative and sustainable wood-based biochemicals for a variety of uses. GrowDex®, the natural matrix for 3D cell culturing, is one example of them. To increase market presence globally and support business growth, UPM decided to enhance its online marketing and sales.

“Tieto is a key partner to UPM. Their proven competencies in eCommerce and their practical  and agile approach to build an eCommerce solution for a growing business will help us to achieve our targets. Working in startup mode ourselves and targeting strong growth, we wanted our partner to have the same mindset”, says Juuso Konttinen, VP, UPM Biochemicals.

Under the agreement, Tieto will be responsible for the end-to-end service delivery from design, development and integrations, to quality assurance and application management services ensuring holistic delivery and future development. With one Service-level agreement, Tieto Commerce Cloud brings UPM both flexibility and simplicity.

Tieto conducted an eCommerce study for UPM in order to design the customer journey, gather functional requirements and identify internal capability requirements for the omni-channel solution. Architectural options for the solution were also identified and analysed, which led Tieto to recommend a microservices-based solution to meet the needs of UPM Biochemicals.

“Microservices are gaining a lot of popularity and for a reason. In the customer engagement layer in particular, this architectural approach enables shorter time-to-market and development agility but also ensures development focus on areas with the greatest business benefit. When targeting growth and business renewal with start-up mentality, these are important factors”, says Jaakko Hallavo, Principal Consultant at Tieto.

Tieto Commerce Cloud enables fast time-to-market, providing agility in development and adaptability for future business needs. By combining commercetools and other similar leading API-first solutions with Tieto’s commerce accelerators and Amazon AWS capacity, Tieto is able to provide holistic and modern omni-channel solution as one service.

As part of Tieto Commerce Cloud service launch, Tieto and commercetools have signed a partnership agreement to offer modern API-first commerce solutions for Nordic enterprises.

“Many larger companies still struggle with these modern technologies. Tieto Commerce Cloud is our take on this area. We want to make sure our enterprise customers can adapt modern architectural approaches and agile ways of working to their existing technology stacks and governance models. It’s all about combining the best of both worlds”, continues Jaakko Hallavo.

Recently, commercetools was featured in The Forrester Wave™ B2C Commerce Suites Q1 2017 report. The research house highlighted that cloud-based, service-oriented architectures which implement commerce solutions in a more modern and modular fashion are now must-haves within commerce suites. Commercetools received the highest scores possible in three criteria, including its Microservices and service-oriented architecture.

"We are happy to partner with Tieto in jointly introducing the agile and groundbreaking microservices approach in the Nordics. Even though the concept of Microservices is not new in itself, it is still being considered as a new architecture with significant disruptive potential that many retailers and brands wish to leverage. Yet few commerce platforms can fully exploit it. With the newly launched Tieto Commerce Cloud, we are bridging this gap, offering a holistic solution that allows our customers to tap into faster and more flexible ways of creating a new dimension of customer centric engagement”, adds Dirk Weckerlei, Partner Manager at commercetools.
