3FrontOffice, a cloud-based communications service from 3 in Sweden, and 3Kontakt, a similar offering in Denmark, integrate businesses' mobile and fixed communications networks and give employees the ability to work and collaborate anywhere.

"Without the right communications tools, businesses are at a distinct disadvantage from a productivity and competitive standpoint. 3FrontOffice allows their employees to work more efficiently and improve customer service. Powered by Mitel cloud technology, it offers a range of capabilities that make communicating in real-time as convenient and simple as possible," said Per Schelin, vice president, Product and Business Development, 3 Sweden.  

"In 2005, 3 was one of the first operators in the world to launch a mobile switchboard. It's been a great success, but we reached a point where the platform became technically limited for our vision. We've now chosen Mitel because of their outstanding product, and like us, they work in an agile manner, with great focus on innovation and ease of use. We look forward to working closely with Mitel to take their platform to a new level," said Jacob Hein Knudsen, vice president, Business Market, 3 Denmark.

"The business communications market represents a significant growth opportunity for mobile carriers. With a ready-to-go communications system, it's easy for them to quickly roll out new products, under their own brand, to attract more business users and build customer loyalty. The mobile-first design of Mitel's cloud solution also ensures flexibility in where and how their customers communicate and collaborate," said Patrik Sorqvist, vice president, Mitel Cloud Services, EMEA.
