Comarch was ready to deliver a licensed platform with full outsourcing of operations and hosting of hardware and software. This efficient approach enabled Telekom Austria Group to maintain a fully independent platform and keep costs under control.
Looking to expand their business, Telekom Austria Group decided to enter the machine-to-machine (M2M) market and estabilished a dedicated spin-off company for M2M in September 2011. The company mainly sddresses B2B customers and solution partners with the objective of becoming the leading M2M boutique provider in the CEE region.

The Comarch M2M Platform has enabled Telekom Austria Group to readily respond to the needs of the machine to-machine market with the highest flexibility and scalability. Customers have full control of their services, with features customized to their needs. This gives them the independence to function with minimal operator involvement.

"We chose Comarch because their existing product portfolio provided a good basis for the platform. More importantly, Comarch was able to prove their ability to quickly develop custom features upon request. We believe that in dynamically growing markets, flexibility and customer orientation are the keys to success. The set-up we have chosen with Comarch helps us deliver just that."
