Unilever Extends BT's IT Outsourcing Contract By 3 Years
New Delhi: Communication services major BT on Monday said FMCG giant Unilever has extended its IT outsourcing contract by three years.
This is the third time it has been extended since BT first won its contract with the Anglo-Dutch company in November 2002, BT said in a release.
Unilever operates globally with famous brands like Wall's Ice Cream, Dove beauty products, Lipton and Knorr, consumed by two billion people daily, it added.
"This will also help us deliver BT's Net Good goal to help our customers save three times as much carbon as the end-to-end impact of our business by 2020, a key part of our Better Future programme," BT Global Services CEO Luis Alvarez said.
The consumer goods market is extremely competitive and BT understands the important role technology can play in helping them stay ahead of the game, Alvarez added.
The original contract, announced in November 2002, was the first comprehensive global telecommunications outsource contract ever undertaken by BT and remains one of its largest global deals.
