Getronics, the Global ICT Services Company, today announced that Barclays has selected it as a strategic partner to provide desktop and application management support to over 30,000 users, the majority of which are in the United Kingdom. The win will see Getronics become a key strategic partner of Barclays, providing a greater range of services spanning its portfolio, including workspace management, technology transformation and application services. The five-year contract is valued at approximately EUR 200 million and begins in February 2006.

This major international contract win represents the Company's largest ever Financial Services deal. The contract will be serviced primarily out of the United Kingdom but involving support from its Spanish operations and its Global Service Centre in Budapest. In 2005, Getronics strengthened its UK operations with the acquisition of PinkRoccade and with a number of new appointments to its UK management team.

Paul Idzik, Chief Operating Officer of Barclays said: “As part of our continuous assessment of IT support to meet the changing needs of our business, we have reviewed our current supplier arrangements. Getronics was a logical choice due to its 18 year track record with Barclays and its validated positive experience with transitioning and supporting other clients in the financial services sector." Paul Idzik continued: “Getronics’ workspace and application management services provide us with the support and flexibility we need to continue to evolve and optimise our IT environment cost effectively.”

In order to meet the requirements that Barclays places upon its networks, the bank needed to engage the services of a company that understands the financial services sector, is flexible and has in-depth experience and knowledge of ICT. The project will be rolled out in two phases. The first will focus on the transition of current technology and business practices. This will be followed by the installation and integration of new technology in order to improve the efficiency of the workspace management system.

Klaas Wagenaar, Chairman and CEO of Getronics commented: “Workspace management and application services are our core business. We understand the drivers and challenges our clients face. We ensure our clients remain in control of their business while we deliver the level of service they require. The Barclays contract is particularly exciting for us as it endorses the success of our strengthened service portfolio and validates our strategic focus. We look forward to the continual evolution of our relationship with Barclays and helping the bank realise its future technology vision.”
