Helsinki, 12. June 2017

Atos, a leader in digital transformation, and A-Katsastus Group Oy, one of the leading European companies providing vehicle inspection and registration services, have signed a three-year contract with a two-year extension option, under which Atos provides to A-Katsastus Group comprehensive data center and end-user services. The cloud-based solution provides the client a flexible and cost-efficient operation model, which supports the company’s business growth ambitions in the continuously accelerating digitalization.

Atos’ highly scalable IT service solution adds flexibility and efficiency to the daily operations of A-Katsastus Group. Through the new outsourcing model the company transforms gradually to a full capacity cloud delivery model, which includes standardized and continuous 24/7 service.

“Our customers’ needs form the base for our operations and we strive always for first-class customer experience. With the new agreement, we are able to serve our customers even better. By utilizing Atos IT expertise, we can develop our services and continue our operations as a pioneer in the field”, says Päivi Hokkanen, CIO at A-Katsastus Group.

Besides Atos’ extensive knowhow, client benefits from Atos’ highly-developed tools and service processes, which guarantee technological innovation and cost-effective service delivery. In the service delivery, Atos uses the “right-shore” concept, meaning that the services are always delivered cost-efficiently according to the customer’s needs, either onsite or offsite. As part of the new operation model A-Katsastus Group’s IT production personnel will transfer to work at Atos in Finland. The knowhow of A-Katsastus’ IT-experts complete Atos expertise and support the focus areas of the development of the outsourcing services.

“We are very happy to support and help to improve A-Katsastus Group’s business in their digital transformation. Thanks to the Atos certified and modern data center services we can ensure the business continuity, where disturbances are detected and fixed in real-time, with a ‘turn-key principle’”, says Tapio Koskinen, Account Executive at Atos in Finland.
