Verkotan is proud to announce a joint project “SP-400” with Posti -Finnish Postal Service. SP400 -project has a goal to create a new kind of automatic service concept, which brings the mail service closer to the customer and enhances the customer experience.
Posti is at the biggest turning point in its 381 years of operation: Consumers’ needs have changed drastically through the rise of digitalization, huge reduction in paper mail and heavy competition. On the other hand, the volume of shipped packages has been on the rise. This is due to popularity of online shopping, which drives the need for Postal service to invest dozens of millions to build consumer-friendly, country-wide automated package network.
The private sector has mainly been leading the goals of this project in close cooperation with research institute partners Centre of Wireless Communication in University of Oulu and VTT. According to Jari Paasikivi, head of process technology at Posti: “The intention is to create heavily commercial solution on the first quarter of next year”.
Allied ICT Finland scouted for the best companies to participate in the project. Verkotan is happy to join Capricode, elfGroup, iProtoXi, Haltian, Juha Punta Oy, Kaltiot, Solmutech and Symbio as well as VTT & Oulu University in this project.
Verkotan as a test service house for wireless products and systems is also participating in a separate project with Posti which uses Haltian Thingsee IoT Gateway, read more about it here.
