Logica, now part of CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.A) (NYSE: GIB), a leading provider of information technology and business process services, and ISS, a leading global provider of facility services, announced today they have entered into a new partnership that will see CGI deliver outsourcing services to improve ISS’ IT flexibility and agility.
Logica has been selected by ISS as its IT Infrastructure and Operations partner across the Nordic region to deliver infrastructure and IT service to approximately 45,000 ISS employees across the Nordic countries. This will include the provision of server operations and workstation support.
ISS Denmark has already signed a local service agreement for data centre and workstation services and the other Nordic ISS country organisations (Sweden, Finland and Norway) offer the possibility to further expand the services provided by CGI. ISS and CGI will also begin discussions to assess the development of the partnership and the potential for the delivery of facility management services to CGI’s Nordic business operations.
“Over the last few years ISS has built a true Nordic business platform. This allows the company to offer consistent and integrated facility service solutions to our customers in all the Nordic countries. One common IT sourcing partner in the Nordics will further help us strengthen our offer to customers with opera-tions in the region,” said Troels Bjerg, Regional CEO Nordic & Eastern Europe, ISS.
“With more than 40,000 customers, close to 45,000 employees and revenues of almost 20 billion DKK, ISS is market leader in all Nordic countries and we hold the necessary competence and capacity to manage and deliver large and demanding contracts across the entire geography. We look forward to partnering with Logica, now part of CGI, in the Nordic countries,” Bjerg continued.
“This win reinforces CGI’s market leading capability as an infrastructure out-sourcing provider the Nordic region. To secure this partnership with one of the world’s largest facility service providers ahead of key industry competitors is a clear demonstration of the strength of our proposition and expertise in this space,” said Joao Baptista, President, Nordics, Southern Europe and South America for CGI.
