Rob Fraser, Boots IT director, said, “The new, expanded relationship provides a springboard that will enable further business benefits and cost savings.”

As part of the £26m extension, Xansa will continue to provide application support and maintenance across the company, from Boots’ head office through to its supply chain and its store-based applications. 

Areas covered include applications development, programme and project management, application architecture and business consulting services.
