IT services company Atos has signed a three-year framework agreement with Shell to provide both IT and non IT services that support the group’s business activities in the Netherlands. As preferred supplier, Atos now provides experts in IT, accounting and finance, contracting and procurement, human resources (HR), customer services and communication and marketing.
The agreement follows Shell’s decision to reduce its number of IT and non IT service providers from 18 to six, which enables the group to realise substantial savings on management costs. The status of preferred supplier for IT and non IT services allows Atos to enhance its visibility within the Shell organization and to further reinforce its market position for IT and non IT services in the oil and gas industry.
“In the past few years Atos made every effort to be an excellent IT partner for Shell. This contract shows that we have succeeded. Both Shell and Atos are satisfied with the cooperation. We are delighted with this contract and will do whatever we can to further develop our partnership with Shell,” said Rob Pols, chief executive officer (CEO) of Atos.
