Lassila & Tikanoja, which focuses on environmental care, real estate and facility services, is expanding its cooperation with Ropo Capital. According to an agreement signed on 3 September, the services provided will be extended to debt collection in addition to invoicing.
Ropo was selected to extend the service on the basis of a competitive tender. Cooperation on invoice operations, which has continued for several years, provides a solid basis for extending the contract.
“Our successful cooperation with Ropo and the benefits of extended cooperation to L&T were important factors in our decision,” says Tuomas Mäkipeska, CFO of L&T.
The L&T service package will be transferred to the Ropo 24 service platform during the revamp. The implementation project has begun and the first phase will be completed in October.
Lassila & Tikanoja, which is listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange, is one of the largest providers of real estate services in Finland. The company’s net sales were 709.5 million euros in 2017 and it employs around 8,700 people.
“Ropo has grown rapidly in a range of sectors involving huge invoicing volumes, not just the waste and real estate services sector. We are delighted to be extending our cooperation with L&T in relation to debt collection. The contract extension is important to us, and L&T is an important reference as a listed company,” comments Ville Räsänen, Account Director of Ropo Capital.
