If you’re there, Setera is there

Setera to roll-out operator services in various European countries in 2017, Italy the first to go

Starting from January 2017, Setera will be offering cloud-based mobile PBX services to Italian companies. Setera’s subsidiary Setera Italia S.r.l is the operator for Italy and provides independently both numbering and voice services for its customers. Setera employs Mitel software in its service. Mitel (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW) is a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications. The company powers more than 2 billion business connections and 2 billion mobile subscribers every day. At the end of the financial year 2015, Mitel’s turnover was 1.16 billion USD.

“We chose to start with Italy, it being the biggest European country in terms of the number of enterprises. Of the 20 million enterprises in Europe, 17 per cent are based in Italy. The next  countries to be launched are Spain and the UK. During 2017, we also plan to start service offering in Germany, Switzerland and Austria” says CEO of Setera Tuomo Kiesvaara.

”Our service launch will have a flying start thanks to our existing supply channels in Rome and Milan. In Finland, desk phones have been history for many years already. We want to bring one comprehensive mobile switchboard solution to all of our customers in Europe. The timing is right, as the determined sale of cloud-based services in Italy has taken wing only recently. In practice, companies still make use of both the traditional switchboard and ISDN connectivity. We’re aiming to claim our share of the huge and rapidly growing market. Mitel, with its strong focus on innovation and its continuous development of software and new functionalities for its customers, is by far the best possible partner for us,” Kiesvaara emphasizes.

According to Kiesvaara, Setera’s customers appreciate the simplicity and advanced capabilities of the user experience, particularly the true integration of mobility. Setera has provided small and medium-sized enterprises in Finland with MiCloud services since 2009. The capital area-based company continues to do so under its Office+ brand.

According to independent industry analyst firm MZA Ltd., the compound annual growth rate for Hosted/Cloud Business Telephony in the Italian market is expected to grow 67 percent from 2015-2020.
