Telenor wins contract to supply mobile services to AgriKjop

Jan 18, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Telenor, a provider of telecommunication, data and media services, has won a contract to supply mobile services to AgriKjop. The agreement is worth NOK180 million over three years.

AgriKjop is a joint purchasing organization for the companies in the Federation of Norwegian Agricultural Co-operatives, consisting of around 100 different member companies, including subsidiaries. The contract is an extension to an existing framework agreement with Telenor. It includes greater standardization and simplification of services provided, along with increased functionality for member companies.

"AgriKjop consists of a variety of different companies, from major industrial concerns to small companies, who have different needs and challenges. The new agreement gives the companies a simpler solution with a package of voice and data services, and also facilitates the use of other communications solutions from Telenor and their partners. At the same time, the agreement means less administration and reduced costs for our member companies," says Gunnar Vandvik, Director for Agreements and System Development at AgriKjop AS.

In addition, AgriKjop and Telenor intend to add new services to the present telephony framework, including the unified communications service 'Telenor Samordnet kommunikasjon' and Lync.
