LINK Mobility and PostNord Strålfors have signed a letter of intent regarding cooperation on new communications services

LINK Mobility and PostNord Strålfors have collaborated during a decade regarding communication and mobile services and are now launching a collaboration within the RCS, Multi-channel/OTT and AI/BOT communications areas.

The cooperation will begin in the autumn of 2017 and be made with the ambition to sign a final agreement by December 31st. The plan is that the services will be delivered to PostNord Stålfors in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland during the first half of 2018.

– We look forward to offering, together with LINK Mobility, the Nordic market the latest mobile communications services through our Omnichannel solution, allowing our customers to easily connect the latest channels for communication with their customers, says Lars Lundström, Head of Digital Services Center at PostNord Stålfors.

– This is very exciting, we are taking the step into three future areas and will help digitize one of the largest employers in the Nordic region. LINK Mobility Group is today at the forefront of mobile communications and the opportunity to deepen cooperation around the digitization of an important community service feels very thrilling, says Krister Tånneryd, CEO of LINK Mobility Sweden. This shows that we are innovative and at the forefront of mobile development. We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with PostNord Stålfors, continues Krister Tånneryd.
