Taylor Wimpey has extended an IT outsourcing agreement with Logica as it embarks on a major change programme.

Logica provides IT infrastructure management, application support, managed testing as well project delivery services. It delivers these services onshore and at offshore locations in India and the Philippines.

Taylor Wimpey, which has received IT services from Logica for almost a decade, said it is embarking on a programme to change the business.   “We chose to renew our contract for another 5 years following a thorough external benchmarking process, which not only confirmed value-for-money, but also positioned Logica as the right technical partner to work with [us] on [our] extensive programme of change,” said Andy Feldon, CIO at Taylor Wimpey.

In 2008 Taylor Wimpey signed a £30m, five-year outsourcing contract with LogicaCMG to reduce IT operational costs by 20% by integrating the IT of Taylor Woodrow and George Wimpey which merged the year before.
