Vytek's proven experience in delivering mobile applications, carrier infrastructure and wireless integration services combined with Stellcom's expertise in driving innovation is a formula for success over the coming months and years." The new company's immediate focus includes intensifying efforts in the following areas:

  • expanding supply chain, field service and inventory management programs to drive the development of "self-service" portals that empower employees and customers;
