Johnson Service Group (JSG) is to work with Atos Origin to implement a new SAP MySap enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, to drive down supply chain costs and establish operational best practices.
Atos will provide systems integration services to implement the SAP system across JSG's retail dry cleaning, corporate-wear, garment rental and facilities management businesses – 10 UK companies in total.
JSG has recently grown through a number of acquisitions, and needed to standardise and integrate the IT across its four divisions.
The two-year deal with Atos is worth more than £5m.
“Atos Origin demonstrated a strong understanding of our business needs, which together with its track record in implementing ERP systems convinced us that it was the right company for this project,” said Jim Wilkinson, chief financial officer at JSG.
