Hungary’s largest ICT employer, IT Services Hungary, rebranded to Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions as of July 1. The company says the aim of the name change is to streamline the German mother company’s international b2b telecommunications business structure, to enhance cooperation efficiency within the company group and to improve customer service.
The changes will have no impact on the Hungarian subsidiary’s strategy and growth targets; the local leadership says it welcomes the development of the international structure and expects even more efficient cooperation between markets.
The rebranding comes in two stages Deutsche Telekom IT and Telecommunications Hungary Kft. were formed as of July 1. The remaining part of ITSH will be renamed Deutsche Telekom Systems Solutions Hungary Kft., effective from October 1. The two companies will be present in the job market under the joint brand name of Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions.
“The international restructuring will make cooperation simpler and more transparent within the company group,” explains ITSH managing director Erik Slooten.
“After the separation of telecommunications-related services, the entire Deutsche Telekom group, including its Hungarian subsidiaries, will be able to react to business customers’ TC [telecommunications] needs in an even more agile way. Locally, high quality work will continue along our existing business strategy: we will carry on pursuing more complex projects and added value,” he says.
Mariann Mészáros, vice president of human resources at ITSH adds, “Becoming Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions is an indication of commitment towards the shared values of the DT Group: customer focus, being technologically curious and acting as one team.
“We want to further encourage our present and future colleagues to create value together for customers and the industry. Also, the streamlined structure will well support them in utilizing and improving their knowledge and expertise in an inspiring international environment or even global projects.”
