BT expands enterprise portfolio in Turkey

14 November 2012 |


BT has expanded its enterprise offering in Turkey to cater to multinationals looking to achieve operational efficiency and improve collaboration.

The provider has launched services including unified communications, IT security, smart call centre solutions and cloud computing in the country as part of an expansion programme first announced in February.

BT has also established a global centre of excellence focussed on satellite communications in Istanbul. The centre delivers services to Turkish companies with network coverage across Turkey, Central Asia and North Africa.

During a meeting in Istanbul, BT Global Services’ CEO Luis Alvarez said that the international success of Turkish companies had led to demand from BT’s multinational customers to help them capitalise on opportunities in Turkey.

“Turkey, with its young, well educated population and its remarkable growth rate, is of strategic importance for multinational companies. The country is a natural bridge between Europe and Asia with Istanbul quickly establishing itself as an important financial and logistics hub,” said Alvarez.

"Building on our strong assets in the country and in the wider region, we are determined to be the partner of choice for global organisations seeking to grow here and Turkish organisations investing globally.”
