Life assurance company Britannic has signed a 10-year multi-million pound IT outsourcing contract with Atos Origin.
The new contract is an extension of an existing outsourcing deal between the pair, but sees Atos become the single preferred IT partner of Britannic.
The new deal will see Atos Origin provide a data centre and print services to Britannic, including the secure production of cheques.
“To reduce our IT costs and get more value from our IT spend, we decided to rationalise our IT providers and appoint a single preferred IT partner,” said Steve Nesbitt, Britannic head of IT.
Britannic is currently going through a merger process with the Resolution Life Group.
