First of October Fältcom will change name to Telia. Fältcom will be discontinued, and all business will be transferred to the mother company Telia Company. This to build on the two companies' strengths and to create additional growth within Telia’s business area IoT.
In 2017 Telia acquired Fältcom as a subsidiary to Telia Division X, the emerging business division of Telia Company. Nurturing innovation within the company and finding new ways to keep Telia evolving. Fältcom's deep knowledge within IoT and their IoTplatform with connected services for Public Transport was a perfect match to Telia’s IoT strategy. Together the companies have developed the service offerings. Resulting a market leading position within Public Transport in Sweden. Now Fältcom will be fully integrated to Telia.The target is to broaden the offerings and accelerate the delivery further to gain a stronger position within IoT.
"With the full integration we can strengthen our market position and accelerate sales and delivery of the Smart Public Transport offering in the Nordics, Baltics, US and UK and further expand the Smart Transport & Logistics offering that was recently launched in Finland. This will also create additional value for our customers and partners”, says Björn Hansen, Head of Telia IoT.
Our business for creating safe and reliable elevator communication will continue as before and be further developed now under the Telia brand.
The Fältcom office will become a Telia unit where business and operation will remain and there will be no changes in personnel. Customers will experience an enhanced value through a broader IoT offering and more focused resources to develop new connected services.
The new Telia unit will report to Björn Hansen, Head of IoT, Telia Division X. Appointed responsible for the unit is presently Christer Jernberg, acting CEO. The target is that the integration will be finalized Q2 2020.
