Getronics lands Intersnack ICT services contract
Getronics has snagged a seven-year deal with Intersnack, the holding company behind such brands as Hula Hoops, funny-frisch, Chio, McCoys, POM-BÄR, KP nuts, Estrella, Vico, and ültje.
It will deliver and manage end-to-end global IT infrastructure, including Service Integration & Management (SIAM), end-user computing services, networking, hardware and software, security and service desk. This will provide the foundation on which Infor, Intersnack’s chosen provider for its ERP cloud applications migration project, will provide a business process solution.
Henrik Bauwens, CEO at Intersnack, says: “While centralising our IT operations is a vital step in our growth strategy, within the last nine months we have taken decisions that hand over the majority of responsibility for our country-based IT to a small group of global partners. Outsourcing our infrastructure to this degree is a very clear expression of our confidence in Getronics’ capability to deliver and manage the foundations, platform and infrastructure we need, on a global scale, so we can continue to grow Intersnack’s brand portfolio and overall business even more successfully.”
The contract covers 23 countries, 20 European countries as well as India, Vietnam and Singapore. The precise financial value has not been disclosed.
