BT has announced it has signed a contract with Schindler, one of the world’s leading providers of elevators, escalators and moving walkways, as well as maintenance and modernisation services. BT will provide Schindler with a reliable and secure network and voice solution connecting about 500 sites worldwide.
BT will deploy and manage a consolidated global network infrastructure for Schindler, connecting its data centres, offices, factories and contact centres globally using IP Connect, BT’s highly reliable and secure network service and a global Internet solution. This will remove the complexity of dealing with a multitude of network operators. It will offer Schindler better visibility of cost and performance as well as improved end-to-end service quality.
Matteo Attrovio, Chief Information Officer, Schindler Group, said: “A global, secure, integrated network is a crucial element of our digital strategy. It will allow us to move from a fragmented network of suppliers to a global provider who can offer a fully managed, high quality end-to-end network service.”
Bas Burger, CEO of Global, BT, said: “We are proud to have been chosen by Schindler as a trusted adviser on its Digital Transformation journey. Schindler is a fast-growing, global company and we are happy to support it with our services and expertise all around the globe. Schindler moves more than 1 billion people every day and it is fantastic that we can support it in providing a safe and secure service.”
