CSC has signed an agreement with Royal Mail Group in the UK to provide cloud computing IT services. The agreement expands CSC’s current contract with Royal Mail Group to provide support for computers, servers and mainframes.
Under the contract, CSC will provide access to cloud computing services via Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite, along with technical support. With this deal, CSC becomes the first Microsoft partner to win a cloud computing contract on this scale.
Carol Olney, Head of Technology Service Delivery at Royal Mail Group, said “This deal forms part of Royal Mail’s drive to invest in new technology to improve efficiency and customer service. The Microsoft suite will give people across Royal Mail Group the tools they need to do their jobs more effectively, enabling our business units to collaborate with each other, partners and other external organisations more freely, easily and securely while securing cost savings.”
Kevin Brown, VP and COO of CSC in the UK, said “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Royal Mail Group and deliver the benefits of cloud services. Working collaboratively with Microsoft, we look forward to helping Royal Mail Group lower operational costs and providing more flexibility in the management of its IT systems.”
