Telefonica Business Solutions, leading provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market, has signed a global contract with acens, a Cloud service Company part of Telefonica, to commercialize acens' SaaS (Software as a Service) products in Latin America. With this agreement, Telefonica reinforces, enlarges and internationalizes its Cloud portfolio and brings best-in-class cloud services to its enterprise customers.
