Virnex helps its customers promote their business with IT services, consulting, and resourcing. Specializing in integrating ITSM (IT Service Management) technologies, Virnex has a solid background in utilizing cloud-based integration platforms. Finnish Frends Enterprise iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) is added to the product palette, allowing cost-efficient integrations for multiple use cases.

“The simple and flexible pricing of Frends iPaaS allows us to help our customers more extensively than ever before. The platform makes even minor integrations profitable to build. Hence, the use cases are endless,” says Hannu Mikkola, Managing Director of Virnex Business Services Oy.

Virnex works with Frends in two ways. First, it is an official co-seller, and second, it provides a VIP (Virnex Integration Platform) Service for Frends iPaaS customers. VIP Service is designed for companies who wish to outsource their integration platform maintenance and development.

Mikkola appreciates the low-code Frends technology that allows independent and straightforward development and never leaves Virnex on hold.

“With other systems, we might face situations where all development stops due to a lacking adapter, for example. With Frends’s low-code configuration, on the other hand, there is no waiting around. We can build anything ourselves and provide dynamic and reliable services for our customers.”

Not only provides Virnex Frends iPaaS for customers, but the company also started to use it in-house. Mikkola is confident about the benefits.

“Frends iPaaS is not just an integration platform but allows using RPA to support automation. Their hyperautomation thinking is way beyond others. In addition, Frends is well-known and established and has extensive support materials, training, references, and a customer base.”

Frends is excited about the comprehensive cooperation with Virnex’s dedicated integration professionals. Virnex immediately trained their development and sales teams to be able to help their customers with even the most complex Frends needs.

“We are delighted to start cooperating with Virnex, which appears to be similarly dynamic with us. Virnex brings its deep knowledge to ITSM needs and more integration experts in our Frends family. Together we can help customers thrive and accelerate each other’s growth. A fruitful cooperation like this is truly a win-win-win situation for all,” says Jukka Rautio, SVP, Head of Frends.
