Zo kunnen we onze klanten een nog betere propositie aanbieden. Daarnaast stelt onze samenwerking ons in staat het MKB verder te digitaliseren en ons als marktleider te blijven ontwikkelen“, zegt Dr Ralf Ebbinghaus, CEO van het Duitse Swyx Solutions AG. Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director bij de Deutsche Telekom benadrukt het belang van digitalisering bij kleine tot middelgrote ondernemingen: “Met deze samenwerking onderstrepen we wederom het belang dat Deutsche Telekom hecht aan een verdere digitalisering in het MKB. Swyx is daarin een betrouwbare partner met wie we graag blijven samenwerken. Een win-win, niet alleen voor beide bedrijven maar ook onze klanten”.

Daarnaast bedanken wij QNP— onze trouwe partner. Door het vertrouwen in ons zijn wij in staat om te focussen op innovatie — om zo een optimale gebruikerservaring te bieden aan zakelijk Nederland. Zo kunnen bedrijven met de tijd mee. Toekomstbestendig dus! Gefeliciteerd Canon Business Center Nederland! Canon Business Center Nederland heeft dit goed begrepen en koos daarom voor OZMO.
