Scania GB is replacing its legacy comms infrastructure with a managed cloud-based unified comms service

The British subsidiary of Swedish truck and bus manufacturer Scania has selected Olive Communications to help move its telecoms infrastructure to a managed cloud platform.

The multi-million pound deal will see Olive implement and manage a federated cloud-based unified communications platform on behalf of Scania, and roll out new MPLS network and LAN infrastructure as well as a new contact centre.

The company has about 50 UK centres running disparate communications infrastructure, which Scania said was becoming difficult to manage.

“With our current system coming to the end of its natural life, we wanted to procure the best possible solution for our business. Our objectives were to improve our ability to provide a first class service to our customers, enhance employee to employee communications, and reduce our infrastructure and telecoms costs across the board,” said Richard Gray, finance and rental director for Scania, adding that it also wanted to improve customer service.

Olive will also manage Scania’s 600-plus mobile devices.

Martin Flick, chief executive officer of Olive Communications said: “Bringing together cloud and mobile connectivity under one managed service is an increasingly popular deployment for Olive customers, as it increases the ability for employees to contact each other wherever they are working, improving productivity.”

“This means that Scania (Great Britain) Limited will not only will benefit from significant operational efficiencies, but will significantly reduce their infrastructure costs in the coming years, delivering a substantial return on investment (ROI),” he added.
