Proact IT Group: Proact signs infrastructure hosting contract with MTM

Proact has signed a contract to provide IT Infrastructure hosting for
the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media (MTM), following a
procurement where the agency has sought an external service provider
to support its IT operations.

The public procurement which resulted in Proact submitting the winning
bid followed on MTM's decision to assign its IT hosting and data
centre operations to an external service provider. The assignment for
MTM was initiated by Compose IT, the service provider which was
acquired by Proact in December 2015as part of the strategic
initiative to grow its datacenter, hosting and cloud services, and
which has since become an integrated part of Proact's Nordic business
organisation.

"We look forward to working with Proact, to obtain updated, reliable
support for our IT operations which will help raise the quality of
our digital services, offering users quicker and more reliable access
to accessible media," says Nader Svärd, IT Manager with MTM. "Proact
made a detailed effort in studying our tender documents and submitted
a bid which clearly reflects our needs and requirements."

The Agency for Accessible Media is working under the administration of
the Ministry of Culture with the mission to give access to literature
and public information based on the means of each individual,
regardless of reading proficiency or disability. MTM offers a wide
range of services for people with reading disabilities, including
talking books and newspapers and braille publications.

"We are very satisfied and notably proud to welcome MTM as a new
customer," says Anders Lerjestam, responsible for Proact's managed
cloud services in the Nordics. "Through this assignment we will
contribute to a fascinating public service where technology creates
amazing opportunities for innovation."

MTM has assigned hosting and management of all servers and databases
to Proact, including 24x7 monitoring for mission-critical functions,
such as the digital library Legimus. Also included are managed
services for networking and communications services, including
Internet access, firewall protection and WLAN.
