Swisscom IT Services has become Switzerland's first Google partner for business customers. The two companies signed a partnership agreement for the Enterprise Professional Program at the beginning of 2006. Under the terms of the agreement Swisscom IT Services will be providing a comprehensive portfolio of services, ranging from system integration to hosting, for the Google Enterprise Search Appliance: the new business product from the world's most popular Internet search engine.
"By offering the Google Search Appliance, we can provide our customers with the same user-friendly, efficient search quality to which they are accustomed from Google.com," says Beat Häberli, Head of Product Management at Swisscom IT Services.
David Chalmers, Program Manager of Google Enterprise Professional, adds: "In Swisscom IT Services we have selected a leading provider of forward-looking ICT services in Switzerland. It's an ideal combination of technology, security and the innovative ICT services of Swisscom IT Services."
