Unilever commits to BT managed services
Manufacturing giant Unilever
has extended a global IT
services contract with BT by three years.
The contract, which provides a network as well as mobile and VoIP services to more than 170,000
employees, was originally signed in 2002, and at the time was BT Global
Services’ first global telecommunications outsource.
This is the third time the contract has been extended, and now includes services such as
audioconferencing and videoconferencing.
The €1bn outsourcing contract was last renewed in 2010 as part of a technology
refresh deal worth an extra €173m (£144m).
Paulo De Sa, vice-president infrastructure services at Unilever, said the BT services increase
productivity by improving the connectivity
“We are becoming a more agile business and introducing more sustainable ways of working for our
employees, customers and suppliers, as well as the two billion consumers who rely on our products
every day,” he said.
