Colocation Customer Story: Unikie

Unikie was looking for a reliable supplier that could deliver a high quality colocation solution for their customer’s research environment in a short timeframe. Ficolo was selected based on the recommendation of another client – a decision Unikie has not regretted. Ficolo delivered a tailor-made solution in a couple of months, and now Unikie’s Chief Business Officer Rauno Vänni sleeps well at night.

“We were professional buyers in the sense that we had our own team with very specific requirements in terms of hardware and service contract. We were looking for another professional supplier who would immediately understand our needs and be able to respond flexibly and quickly. The recommendation from our client was so strong that we didn’t really even consider other suppliers.”
