Capgemini and Dutch retail group Maxeda sign €44 million IT services contract extension
The original deal was a five-year contract between Capgemini and Maxeda signed on 14 December 2007. The extension will involve 170 FTEs and see a major part of the application outsourcing and infrastructure outsourcing services delivered from Indian centres located in Kolkata and Mumbai in addition to Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The contract extension would help Maxeda to reduce its total cost of ownership by 10 percent. Moreover, Capgemini will provide Maxeda with an innovative and flexible cloud-based platform for SAP applications.
Speaking on the benefits of the deal, Jens Burgers, CIO Maxeda, said: "Together with the team at Capgemini, we have certainly reached a new milestone with the extension of this contract. This is a result of hard work, an increasingly sustainable relationship, and a definite belief that teamwork will result in a win/win situation for us both. The deal will also significantly reduce our TCO."
Peter Croes, Managing Director of Capgemini Outsourcing B.V., said: "Our retail knowledge, our innovation capabilities combined with the fact that we previously managed to realize a return on investment of €2 million within a year, created a solid basis to take Maxeda to the next level of our service delivery."
