Prague, September 26, 2013 – GTS Central Europe (GTS), a leading provider of integrated telecommunications solutions and data center services throughout Central and Eastern Europe, has been selected by GeoPost Group, a market leader in express parcels delivery services for B2B & B2C customers in Europe, to deliver a customized cloud platform for their Business Intelligence platform throughout Europe. This new 5 year agreement is a milestone in the long-term collaboration between the two companies.
“We needed a trusted and reliable partner that could handle our strict technical requirements and aggressive installation timeframe,” said Philippe Cassan, Director for Information Security at GeoPost. “GTS designed and implemented a scalable, flexible and secure cloud platform with high availability and the improved operational efficiency of our critical GeoTrack application.”
