Telia consolidated more than 25 solutions onto a unified portal to improve the user experience and productivity—providing a single entry point for cross-departmental support and service catalogs.
The next-generation Nordic telco
At Telia Company, approximately 20,000 talented individuals serve millions of telco customers in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Founded in 1853, the company acts as a digital hub, helping businesses and consumers stay connected to what matters most to them 24/7/365.
Improving access to internal support
Like many companies with a long heritage, Telia Company’s IT estate was made up of multiple legacy systems and complex processes in the support and ordering area that varied between different regions. When staff needed support or to place an order, they had to navigate more than 25 solutions to find what they were looking for.
“Our annual user satisfaction survey showed that people were spending a lot of time looking for information or filling in manual forms to perform simple tasks like ordering devices or onboarding new starters,” recalls Mikaela Lindén, Head of Service Catalog and Customer Integrations.
To improve user satisfaction, the team decided to consolidate support for IT, HR, facility management, finance, procurement, security, ethics, and compliance into a central portal called PLAZA, built on ServiceNow.
“ServiceNow has the broad capabilities we need to give users support across multiple departments from a single entry point,” reveals Christian Almroth, Product Owner for Development.
