TietoEnator Wins Latvian Telecom ContractSwedish IT consulting firm TietoEnator yesterday gained a new contract to maintain and provide consulting services for the call center system operated by Latvian telecommunications provider Lattelekom SIA.
TietoEnator, Stockholm, will maintain 24-hour inbound teleservices on Lattelekom's call center system as well as provide outbound sales telemarketing. Lattelekom operates three call centers in the Latvian cities of Cesis, Rezekne and Liepaja and has plans to connect a fourth call center in Riga to the main network in the near future.
