MeetingPackage has done exactly what is expected of today’s startup companies: they’ve fast expanded internationally. The company is on the rise and needs proper tools to take the world by storm. They found that from Telia.
Business is good for the startup MeetingPackage. The company rents meeting rooms to businesses and has expanded its operations to over a hundred countries in merely a year. In addition to the UK and Finland, their offices can now be found in Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Spain, and they’re not stopping there – next they’re opening a customer service center in the US.
”At first we tested our service in the UK. We invited potential clients and partners to our launch in a five-star hotel in central London. We did well in the UK and were able to test whether our target group found the service practical and necessary. That’s a good starting point for new markets. It’s been great to see that huge international companies have started to utilise our platform”, rejoices Saku Loukonen, one of the founders of MeetingPackage.
”We were looking for a reliable service provider who could supply us with computers and other devices, like the high-quality Jabra headphones. We all make international calls daily, so our headphones need first-class sound quality”, Loukonen explains.

When the business only employed a handful of staff, they purchased their devices themselves. However, it didn’t work very well, especially when the company grew.
”We had a lot of fuss with receipts, maintenance, and loan devices when our own ones were in repair. I felt that the offer we got from Telia was functional as a whole. We decided to rent our laptops and headphones from Telia with a fixed monthly fee. This model is way better for us than buying our own devices. Now we always have access to repair, maintenance, and loan devices, which is really convenient.”
The maintenance that comes with rental devices was one of the deciding factors when the company chose a service provider.
”Luckily services like this exist. We’ve been very happy with Telia’s rental devices and can recommend the service for others as well”, Loukonen says.
