"It is very gratifying and a confirmation that we are doing a good job for our customer, the City of Stockholm," says Ola Kristiansen, Director External Sales Nordic at Volvo IT.
The current agreement with Volvo IT will expire on December 31, 2014. After this, the City has an option to extend the agreement for a further two plus two years and last week the Municipal Council took the decision about the first extension, which will run to December 31, 2016.
The Municipal Council also decided to provide resources equivalent to SEK 85 million per year as an investment in the schools sector. This means that high school students in Stockholm will have access to their own computer. Volvo IT will be responsible for ensuring delivery of these to all municipal schools.
