Capgemini can console itself with Metropolitan Police deal

If talk in the industry is true Capgemini can console itself after missing out on a deal with Cleveland police.

This is because it has apparently won an extension to its £350m seven year deal with the Metropolitan Police.

The original deal was signed in 2005 and included management and support of desktop IT networks, telephony and mobile devices, which includes around 30,000 desktops and laptops, 38,000 telephone extensions and 8,500 mobile phones.

As I said in my previous blog about the Cleveland deal, Capgemini and Steria have good stories in the police sector.

Bob Scott, who I also blogged about recently, was the Capgemini executive that did the original deal. See Bob in the flesh here.
