Europcar Renews IT Outsourcing Contract with Unisys
Unisys to continue providing IT infrastructure services to Europcar employees in more than 1,800 locations in five-year contract extension
Paris – Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) today announced that its French subsidiary has received a five-year extension to its contract to provide outsourced information technology (IT) management and support services to Europcar, European leader in passenger car and light utility vehicle rentals. This renewal, signed in the fourth quarter of 2008, continues the relationship between the companies that began in 2000 and reflects Europcar’s confidence in Unisys infrastructure outsourcing services.
Under the terms of the contract extension, Unisys will continue delivering a range of IT services for Europcar employees in locations throughout Europe, including Europcar’s nine headquarters in seven countries – Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom – and 1,800 commercial agencies.
The Unisys services include installation, management and support services for desktops and other IT infrastructure; creation of master software images for Windows and Linux desktops; and technical assistance for resolution of service events.
“Unisys is a truly collaborative partner that understands how to support our business objectives and activities,” said Kurt Deli, information officer at Europcar. “Through its management of our IT infrastructure and equipment, Unisys has consistently provided high-value outsourcing services that help make Europcar’s employees more productive and better able to serve our customers efficiently. The new contract is further recognition of that valuable capability.”
“This renewal is a testament to the value of Unisys expertise in managing complex international IT infrastructures, as well as to the commitment of our service delivery team,” said Bruno Boucq, vice president and general manager, Unisys Global Outsourcing and Infrastructure Services, South Europe. ”Unisys has built a strong relationship with Europcar over eight years, and we welcome this strong vote of confidence.”
