Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, which is a worldwide provider of customized connected networking, communications and enterprise services solutions (on-premise, in the cloud or both), implemented Kantata in a six-month process overseen by business leaders. The entire company moved from a home-grown PSA onto Kantata on the same day.

Since adopting Kantata, professional services revenue has gone up by three percent.

The mission at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) is to make everything connect with digital age networking, communications and cloud solutions. ALE solutions are tailored to our customers’ industries providing built-in security and limited environmental impact.

"We are very happy with the results we are achieving – better information sharing and collaboration between departments and more discipline in business forecast management and in services delivery."
