A Year ending…

Anna Maria Schmitz - Navidad 2014…which for Teldat has been an important and significant year, successful and with many new projects. A year of integration and growth.

This year 2014 that will finish shortly, has meant among other things, a change in the way Teldat has interacted with our customers, suppliers and all those interested in our technology and what we do.

Since June, when we launched this blog and our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, we have shared many things with our readers: activities, knowledge, opinions, projects, case studies. Everything that we considered relevant to show what makes and what is a small Spanish multinational company which is able to compete with the largest companies within its market sector.

To end this year, we want to thank all our readers for their loyalty and interest as well as welcoming more than 1.000 new followers who have joined our communication channels.

Moreover, we especially want to wish all of them, to all who read us occasionally and all our customers and friends, to have a very merry Christmas and may 2015 be as fruitful for them as this 2014 has been for us.

Few would say that Oxford University is older than the Aztec Empire

teldat logoAnd although only a few would say so, it is. The facts says that Oxford University was founded in the early XII century, and the Mexicans founded Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire in the early XIV century.

The perception of time is one of the most subjective sensations in the world. Only when significant events that have taken place over a period of time are reviewed and recognized, one becomes aware of how far it has advanced and the accomplishments that have been achieved.

Very recently, 3 years have been fulfilled since the merger of Teldat SA and Funkwerk Enterprise Communications GmbH, which gave birth to the European leader in communication equipment. A global company present in four continents, with more than 5.000 distributors and a worldwide client base that includes the most important carriers and companies from all market segments. Three years that have gone past very quickly, but in which changes within both parts of the company have been very deep, changing what was an ambitious project into a successful reality.

As in every integration process, the way forward during the past three years has not been easy and it has been necessary to combine different cultures, different business models, different ways of doing things and different structures. And three years later (already!) after overcoming some difficult situations and after much dedication and much hard work from both the German and Spanish teams, increasingly more and more projects are addressed successfully with the undifferentiated participation of both parts of the company. Moreover, it is assumed that this is just the beginning, because Teldat’s competitive advantage lies in its members’ diversity and their unity’s strength. This is exactly what makes Teldat the European leader within its market sector.

Many may think that this is not an adequate post for a technological company and they would be right. However, one thing that makes Teldat a different company to the rest, is that we believe it is necessary to go beyond pure business itself (in our case that is technology) and show certain issues that give us personality as a company. This weekend, the world has commemorated the 25th anniversary of the  Berlin Wall’s fall, something relevant and of special interest to at least half of those who make up our organization. This post’s origin, over time and the integration, finds itself in the commemorative ceremony that has taken place in Madrid and that finalized, via a spectacular event with the transformation of Madrid’s Alcala gate into the Brandenburg gate. There are few graphical images that resemble our company’s transformation into what is today’s great European company. Only three years after.

A start, that is actually a boost.

internal_red-150x150This is the first post of our blog “Communicate with Us”. For Teldat and everyone who make up the company, this is the beginning of an important project.

Some say that the beginning of something means half the effort, but for us this is not so, as we have been striving to be the best for a long time. Hence for us, launching this blog more than a start is a boost to a project that has been alive for more than thirty years. Thirty years of development, growth and very intense work to get where we are today. This is what we want to be reflected in our first post title.

Why a boost? That’s because in recent years the company has changed considerably, and has gone from serving a local market to being present in all continents and more than thirty countries. Along this path an important number of customers, partners and collaborators have joined our project worldwide. With all of them we have the obligation of establishing active, bidirectional, fast and effective communication channels.

Teldat has a main objective that our clients and partners know what we are doing, in which direction we are heading, those issues that are of our concern, why we are experts in our field and what we can offer. Also for those who know how we work, it’s equally important for us to know what the client demands are, what problems they have and how we can help them. Indeed, this is the base of our business model, and Teldat is one of only a few technological companies in which the needs expressed by the clients are taken into consideration when planning future developments.

This is the project that we start today with this blog, which will integrate with our social media network. Through this, we hope that all those who work with us, those who trust in our company and those who don’t know us yet, will have a simple and effective way in which they can “Communicate with Us”.

To all those who read us, we want to give them through this first post our warmest welcome.
