Atos Origin wins E20 million contract

French IT services firm Atos Origin has agreed to take over the entire management of the Dutch Centre for Employment and Incomes' office automation.

By CBR Staff Writer

Atos Origin will be responsible for managing around 8,000 seats, 50 servers, 1,750 printers and first-line support to end-users. Two data centers will be used to supply services with a view to ensuring optimum availability. The contract is worth around E20 million to Atos Origin which it has secured for three years with the possibility of extension.

Atos Origin takes on responsibility for workplace management and IT support for CWI. Together with its combined partners Uitvoering Werknemersverzekeringen (UWV) and community social services CWI forms the supply-chain for employment and incomes. CWI is thus a most important point of contact for job-seekers and employers alike. Envisioning closer co-ordination right down the chain, CWI recognizes the need for greater IT support and a reliable office automation process.

Atos Origin’s innovative ‘Next Generation Desktop’ service will deliver the quality IT support required of the service. The aims of the services to be supplied are to secure lower and more predictable costs, while minimizing expensive migrations and improving flexibility.

Over the next few years CWI has forseen a state-of-the-art office-automation system that will support them in achieving their ambitious goals in the dynamic world of social security. CWI expects the IT advancements it will harbour in future years will enable it to make a vital contribution towards further integration of the chain.
