Fujitsu Positioned as a ‘Leader’ in The Magic Quadrants for Desktop and Help Desk Outsourcing


London, October 22, 2012

Fujitsu today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of two Magic Quadrant reports: Gartner Magic Quadrant: European Helpdesk Outsourcing1 and Gartner Magic Quadrant: European Desktop Outsourcing2. The reports were published in August/September and are “evaluations based on completeness of vision and ability to execute”.

Gartner defines ‘Leaders’ in both market segments as “[those who] are performing skilfully. They have a clear vision of the market's direction and are developing competencies to maintain their leadership position. They shape the market, rather than follow it.”

Desktop Outsourcing

Fujitsu maintained its strong foothold in many European countries and expanded its desktop portfolio in 2011, despite challenging market conditions. This success reflects Fujitsu’s investment in creating Virtual Client Services and industrialising its desktop outsourcing portfolio and the approach to helping clients meet the diversity of business demands using a combination of physical and virtual desktops solutions. Fujitsu’s clients praised its high level of commitment to getting the work done, its customer focus and fast reaction to problems.

Fujitsu’s position is reflected through a strong focus on proactive management and continuous improvement of the service through its Sense and Respond® methodology and the investments in the Service Desk portfolio with standardised solutions underpinned by TRIOLE for Services, its standard global service management tool. Clients praised Fujitsu for its high level of commitment to getting the work done, its customer focus and fast reaction to problems. Clients also appreciated its technical capabilities and availability of service resources.

Richard Bull, executive director, End User Services, Fujitsu UK & Ireland, commented “We believe Fujitsu’s placement in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s reports confirms its place at the forefront of the outsourced helpdesk and desktop service market. We feel Gartner’s assessment reflects Fujitsu’s solid track record in delivering Desktop and Help Desk services across Europe, our vision and strategies for these two key offerings and our continued focus on delivering an excellent customer experience.”

Within Europe Fujitsu is currently responsible for the management of more than 3 million desktop and mobile devices through its helpdesk and desktop outsourcing offerings. Fujitsu’s help desk and desktop management services incorporate “Sense and Respond®” methodology. Sense and Respond is designed to improve the end-user experience whilst addressing key expectations, such as pro-activity, automation and call reduction.

Fujitsu currently manages global delivery centres for Service Desk delivery in a number of global locations, including the UK, Portugal, Poland, Costa Rica, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Easy Operating System migration through choice of easy upgrade or downgrade

For enterprises that are still evaluating company-wide Windows 8 rollout but want to give early adopters the chance to enjoy the productivity boost of touch-screen technology, Fujitsu is able to offer the best of both worlds. All new Fujitsu models ship with a choice of Windows 7 or Windows 8 licences. Customers with a Windows 7 Professional licence are also entitled to downgrade to Windows XP.

Supporting quote

Craig Parker, head of product marketing for Fujitsu’s Technology Product Group:

“Over the past decade, touch-screen devices have found their place in all aspects of doing business. We developed the new-generation Fujitsu devices to help users take advantage of the changing workplace, for example through support for touch, which gives users a more rounded and intuitive working environment. And with one of the widest ranges of devices featuring Windows 8, by choosing Fujitsu, users don’t need to compromise in their choice.”
