Burlington, MA, United States, 2011/12/12 - Atex and EDB ErgoGroup have announced a partnership which will accelerate cloud-based managed services to existing customers and support further industry growth - Atex.com.
Global software solutions provider, Atex, and EDB ErgoGroup, a leading Nordic IT-vendor and system integrator, have today announced a new multi-million dollar strategic partnership. The collaboration will accelerate cloud-based managed services to existing customers and support further growth within media-rich industries across the Nordic region.
EDB ErgoGroup has the highest level of credibility and broadest range of expertise across multiple technologies and will bring high-quality and reliable business solutions to Atex. The Group will provide in-depth competencies for relevant applications and Nordic knowledge, as well as server hosting.
Atex (atex.com) provides total end-to-end services to meet any business’s multichannel publishing needs. Atex will perform the necessary application management and accommodate a range of solutions, from editorial applications to advertising, circulation and digital production processes.
The partnership will strengthen Atex Managed Services across the company’s portfolio in the Nordics and will be instrumental in supporting key customers including Mentor Media and Bonnier Business Press International.
Bonnier, the largest media corporation in Scandinavia, recently signed a contract with Atex to deploy a full range of solutions across seven countries in Eastern Europe. These include its advertising, circulation and content management systems, which are provided as a managed service, offering a completely integrated solution with streamlined processes and workflows.
Jonas Bringle, Atex Managing Director, Scandinavia, comments: “We are delighted to be joining forces with EDB ErgoGroup, who will bring extensive local expertise and in-depth industry and technological knowledge to Atex. It is very important for us to work with an experienced and reliable partner since the media industry is driven by deadlines for printed editions, and by websites that need to be up-and-running 24/7.
“We are also excited about the opportunity the partnership provides to work even more closely with our customers in the Nordics, helping them to unlock the full potential of their business and optimise their digital strategy.”
Executive Vice President of EDB ErgoGroup, Thorolf Thorstensen, adds: “We are confident that this strategic partnership will be hugely beneficial for Atex, EDB ErgoGroup and all our customers. It will expand our activities towards media-rich industries in the Nordics, and support further growth in the region.”
