Unisys Corp. (NYSE: UIS) has won a five-year, nearly $93 million contract to consolidate the the U.S. Army‘s enterprise service desk for personnel.
Through the integrated point of contact, the Army’s personnel will be able to obtain information technology services for its LandWarNet operation under the Defense Department‘s global networking program, Unisys said Friday.
“This project will allow Unisys to help the Army make its IT support services more efficient and cost-effective through the use of proven commercial technology and services, ” said Gene Zapfel, group vice president for defense and intelligence agencies at Unisys Federal Systems.
“We look forward to bringing our innovative solutions to help the Army achieve its mission, ” added Zapfel.
Unisys will run the project from a primary location and a backup location that both connect to the Army’s unclassified and secure networks.
The company will also apply its Edge Service Management for connecting IT services and the VantagePointSM user interface to the project.
