  • GFT members benefit from ALE innovative service and product portfolio
  • The partnership offers improved conditions, simplified processes, and fair business terms
  • An ALE and GFT eG partnership has been in place in Germany for many years

ALE partners with GFT eG, the only cooperative purchasing association in Austria focused on addressing specialist suppliers in the security and ICT sector.

Kornwestheim, Germany - 08 April 2021- Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communications, networking and cloud solutions tailored to customers’ industries, and GFT eG have entered into a partnership in the Austrian market. GFT eG is the only cooperative purchasing association consisting of medium-sized companies in Austria that specifically targets specialist dealers in the security technology, information, and telecommunications sectors. The new agreement lets GFT members in Austria access Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s innovative service and product portfolio. When purchasing through GFT, specialist companies benefit not only from excellent conditions, but also from a comprehensive and practical set of contracts. This agreement also covers complex topics, such as the GDPR-compliant protection of end customer data when selling and operating cloud solutions. A similar partnership between Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and GFT eG has been in place in Germany for many years.

A partner agreement has also been entered into with Voice & Data Kommunikationslösungen GmbH in Salzburg. This enables Austrian GFT members to purchase ALE systems and other ICT solutions through an established distribution partner.

"Solutions in the telecommunications industry are becoming increasingly complex, not only from a technical, but also from a legal perspective – regardless of whether small or large systems are involved," explains Ing. Günter Rappan, Managing Director of GFT Austria GmbH. "Through the partnership with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, our members benefit from improved conditions, simplified processes, and fair business terms. This allows them to fully concentrate on their core business including sales, construction, and maintenance."

"I am very pleased that our Austrian specialist dealers now have access to the wide range of cooperative services offered by GFT," said Christian Doleschal, Country Business Leader for Alcatel Lucent Enterprise, Austria.
