IT services company Atos Origin has signed a seven-year contract with outsourcing firm ACS to deliver its finance and accounting functions.
ACS was recently acquired by Xerox.
ACS will operate Atos Origin's finance centre based in Poland, providing services to sites in France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg and the UK.
Michel-Alain Proch, group CFO of Atos Origin, said the deal will help to control costs and improve the management of its software and work processes.
The centre will be supported by hiring 150 full-time Atos Origin employees. ACS will also implement a range of Xerox services, including workflow, CRM and compliance management solutions to improve operational efficiency at Atos Origin.
