Finnish glass processor, Glaston, will outsource its ICT services to software and services company Tieto.

Tieto will support Glaston through a strategic partnership in transforming its ICT environment to better serve current and future business needs.

With the support of Tieto, Glaston intends to streamline its ICT services and increase its cost-effectiveness.

The agreement covers infrastructure, end-user and application management services globally.

Glaston’s ICT services have been previously managed by several different vendors. Centralising the services with Tieto will bring Glaston synergies.

Glaston and Tieto will also work together to increase the level of digitalisation and automation of Glaston's products and services as well as focus on better use of data by, for example, taking into use Tieto's data platform.

Partnering with Tieto also supports Glaston in its efforts to achieve synergies from the Bystronic glass transaction.

The services will be transferred to Tieto by the end of the first quarter of 2020.
