Unisys has signed a worldwide IT outsourcing contract with Germany-based BSN Medical, an international provider of medical products for wound care, orthopedics and phlebology.

Under the five-year $35m (£18.5m) deal, Unisys will provide BSN Medical with a suite of IT services to enable the company to implement a global integrated IT infrastructure.

Unisys will provide the company with outsourcing services at 35 locations worldwide, supporting 3,500 BSN Medical staff.

Services will include SAP and non-SAP systems, wide area and local area networking, and messaging. Unisys will also provide desktop services and a user helpdesk.

“The next logical step in our company’s growth strategy is standardising and extending our IT infrastructure,” said Reinhard Quante, CIO of BSN Medical. “Our international goals require an IT services partner with a global presence deploying our IT standards worldwide, and with dedication to local service delivery.”

Unisys will gradually assume responsibility for operating BSN Medical’s IT infrastructure throughout 2007.
