Atos Origin wins IT contract from Britvic

To provide IT hosting services for back office functions

By CBR Staff Writer

Atos Origin, an IT services company, has won a new five-year contract worth around £15m with Great Britain’s soft drinks business Britvic Soft Drinks.

Atos Origin said that this deal covers IT hosting services for Britvic’s centrally located UK systems including all its SAP, Siebel and associated applications for the back office functions.

For this new contract both the companies have agreed a commercial model where the fee is based upon the transactions delivered.

The company said that it will help Britvic to better address business challenges, such as enabling the supply chain to prepare for growth and to ensure that it can continue to respond fast to peaks in demand for its products.

Atos Origin provides support from both the UK and its Indian delivery centres in Mumbai. The new contract follows a three-year contract awarded in 2008 for applications management.

Rob Pritchard, group IT director at Britvic, said: "As we consolidate our leading position in the market and further grow our presence overseas, following our recent acquisition of Fruité Enterpises in France, we need flexible, cost efficient IT systems that can support our business operations and ensure we deliver the products our customers want when they want them.
