Vodafone Germany teams with Dimension Data to bolster IT services

Vodafone Germany has signed an agreement with Dimension Data UK to expand its capabilities as an integrated information and telecoms provider.

The mobile operator, which already works with Dimension Data, said that the agreement will allow the two firms to develop new solutions for business users and optimise the productivity of existing systems. The result will be that Vodafone Germany, together with Dimension Data, will be able to offer enterprise mobility, secure access, storage, WAN optimisation, virtualisation and other IT-related services to strengthen its position in the corporate banking sector.

Jan Geldmacher, CEO of Vodafone Germany's corporate customers, told Portal.de: "Our customers expect solutions and services from a single source. With the signing of the contract, we are strengthening our position as a general contractor in the market, which sets us apart from the competition. We are fulfilling a major need as a supplier of integrated information and telecoms services which combines traditional communications services with innovative IT and system solutions."

The two firms have worked together over the last five yeas focusing on Cisco unified communications, including video and contact centre projects.

Vodafone Germany has also announced that it will consider other strategic partnerships with other integrated information solution providers to increase its corporate business revenues.
