DMR-Fujitsu and Presimaconclude a 5 year agreement for managed services

Fujitsu Canada, Inc.

Montreal, QC, January 26, 2011

Last November, DMR-Fujitsu signed an IT managed services contract with Presima, a global REIT boutique investment management firm. The agreement, the first between the two firms, will span a 5 year period.

The contract awarded to DMR-Fujitsu’s Montreal office involves especially managing Presima’s systems in DMR-Fujitsu’s cloud computing infrastructure, which uses the highest standards in financial information security. The agreement also involves management of workstations, including telephony and videoconferencing support services. Presima and DMR-Fujitsu have engaged in the transition, which should last approximately 4 months. DMR-Fujitsu will then operate Presima’s systems in its cloud computing infrastructure until 2016.

Following its acquisition by National Australia Bank’s (NAB) direct asset management business, nabInvest, last June, Presima issued an RFP to adopt an IT infrastructure independent of its former parent, La Caisse de depot et placement du Québec. DMR-Fujitsu was chosen from among three service providers.

“We are very proud to have been chosen by Presima to host and operate its technology infrastructure, and for office automation support. Presima recognized the quality of our approach and our expertise,” pointed our Yves Pelletier, Senior Vice-President, Business Development and manager of the Montreal office.

Presima Chief Executive, Jean-Guy Talbot said “Presima is pleased to be partnering with DMR-Fujitsu for our IT requirements. They provided a great response to our RFP and the Presima team is now fully engaged in working with DMR-Fujitsu in the transition process. Presima is looking forward to working with DMR-Fujitsu in coming years.”
