18.3.2019 10:56The organiser of Neste Rally Finland, AKK Sports Ltd, and Office Management Oy Finland have signed a partnership agreement on 15 February 2019 on the implementation of the Rally Finland ICT solutions.

After conducting negotiations with several different operators, Office Management was selected as Neste Rally Finland’s information and communications technology (ICT) partner. The partnership agreement covers all the Rally HQ and service park ICT requirements, from network connections all the way to the computers needed for the event as well as an onsite support service. The overall ICT service package is one of the most important elements in Neste Rally Finland, as many of the event’s crucial functions depend on it.

Operating in the Nordic Countries, Office Management is a modern B2B technology partner. The company offers clients a wide range of IT, document management, communications and office services. The Office Management Group employs over 450 people, and in 2018 had a turnover of approximately 135 million euros. 

- The world around us changes constantly, and the same is true for the ICT solution needs of Neste Rally Finland. That is why it was essential for us to enter into partnership with a reliable partner who ambitiously keeps developing their business and wants to be prominent in making Neste Rally Finland an even better event. The values of Office Management and AKK, as well as our views on the content and meaning of the partnership, meet extremely well and we are very pleased to be able to offer them a fantastic platform to raise their profile in Finland through Neste Rally Finland. At the same time, we have gained a new and extremely strong addition into our partner network. Office Management will be responsible for an area that is critical for the success of our event, says the CFO of AKK Sports Markus Häkkinen.

-  We are excited and looking forward to working together with AKK and at the same time getting a stronger foothold in Finnish sports. With Neste Rally Finland, the extremely demanding technical implementation and the international character of the event create new opportunities for us to grow and develop our business. During the contract negotiations, we were able to benefit from our large network of partners, which gave us sufficient background support in planning this critical environment. It is also very important for us to provide our staff with an interesting and continuously evolving working environment, and organising a rally event will be just that, for sure. I believe this is going to be a great partnership, the Country Manager of Office Management Oy Finland Mikko Saarto enthuses.
