KISTA, Sweden--()--Regulatory News:

Proact (STO:PACT) is supplying a converged IT infrastructure to IST (International Software Technology AB) which will meet the company’s stringent demands for futureproofing, flexibility and scalability.

IST is the largest supplier of IT solution for schools and preschools in Scandinavia. The business is growing and the corporation is also established in the US and in China. Since 1985 ITS develop and market IT solutions and IT related services to the educational sector in Scandinavia.

“We appreciate the personal relationship we have and the flexibility and outstanding expertise offered by Proact. For us, it is important to work ‘glocally’ with a supplier which allows us to utilise local expertise throughout Scandinavia,” says Cristian Brolin. “We also appreciate the accountability demonstrated by Proact, and that was actually the deciding factor when it came to choosing a partner.”

“A converged IT infrastructure will give IST more opportunity to streamline, automate and orchestrate its backups, storage, servers, networks and virtualisation. This is an extensive project, and we are proud of the trust placed in us despite tough competition.

Of course, we are particularly pleased that Proact has been selected as IST’s partner on account of our outstanding expertise in all elements of the IT infrastructure, as well as for our accountability to our customers,” says Dan Mårtensson, Regional Manager at Proact.
