Volvo has consolidated its IT procurement through an agreement with Fujitsu for IT services to 20,000 desktops...
and 1,000 servers.
Volvo previously used a number of suppliers to meet its IT needs, but the car manufacturer will now use Fujitsu as its sole provider of IT infrastructure.
As part of the deal, 25 workers at Volvo will be transferred to Fujitsu offices in Sweden and Belgium.
A further 50 to 60 people will be recruited at offices in Sweden and Russia.
Fujitsu's new Service Integrator offering will allow integration of existing services supplied by the different members of VCC Consultancy.
"The goal is to create an efficient process to ensure that all requirements from Volvo are met for all deliveries," said Petri Imberg, CEO at Fujitsu. "Entering as the sole supplier of IT infrastructure services for Volvo is enormously gratifying for us."
