ORIFLAME

Oriflame outsourced its entire IT infrastructure to T-Mobile Czech.


What we appreciate most about the solution provided is the deployment of our systems in the cloud environment, meaning all of our corporate applications are easily available to our employees and consultants. Thanks to it we can flexibly react to market demands in any part of the world and in doing so improve the services we provide to our customers.
