Itella Information outsources IT development work to Nice


Itella Information and Nice-business Solutions have agreed on a business transfer where part of Itella Information's IT development work will be transferred to Nice. As part of the deal, a total of 29 specialists from Itella Information will become Nice's employees from October 1, 2009.

- I believe that through its convincing operating methods, Nice will be able to secure the continuity of our development work. Itella Information is growing extensively in Europe. The cooperation with Nice is a strategic choice for us, because we need more resources for our IT development work. At the same time, we want to focus on our core business ourselves, that is, solutions related to invoicing and financial administration services, says Heikki Länsisyrjä, from  Itella Information.

Itella Information has already previously carried out cooperation with Nice.

- The contract is a significant step for Nice's growth strategy, as the number of our specialists working with Itella will increase substantially along with the contract. We provide Itella with our best advantages, that is, scalability, cost-effective procedures, as well as professional and well-tested methods related to software production, projects and services, says Jouko Seppä, managing director of Nice.
