Swiss bank UBS has signed a multi-million pound hardware and managed services deal with Dell covering desktops and notebooks.
The four-year deal covers 30,000 new desktops and notebooks in UBS’ Swiss branches and all PCs installed in branches outside Switzerland, including the US and the rest of Europe.
The managed deployment services agreement covers installation and 24-hour local support of systems.
“Dell won the contract because of the global availability of its products, its exceptional price/performance ratio and its convincing offering in the services area,” said Scott Abbey, UBS chief technical officer.
“By standardising the PC infrastructure worldwide we can achieve a substantial cost reduction in this area,” Abbey said.
Dell OptiPlex GX280 desktops and Dell Latitude D410 and D610 notebooks will replace existing UBS PCs.
