Fujitsu signs a £27.5m IT outsourcing contract with Davis Langdon LLP

August 10, 2009

Fujitsu has today signed a 5 year, £27.5m IT outsourcing contract with global construction consultancy, Davis Langdon LLP. Fujitsu will manage the IT infrastructure and IT services for over 2000 staff across Europe and the Middle East (EME).

Fujitsu will provide an integrated service that includes a service desk, applications and infrastructure support, desktop managed services, network management and the provision of storage and computer capacity through Fujitsu’s utility based Infrastructure-as-a-Service.

Neil Ashton, Head of Procurement and Supplier Management for Davis Langdon said: “The RFI we issued in the spring had a number of challenging requirements and throughout the tender process, Fujitsu showed us that it could meet all of these demands. From being able to reduce the level of fixed costs in the existing service, to offering a flexible support model across the regions to vary the level of support and cost, to aid in cost management as well reducing the volume of calls to the helpdesk.”

Chris Robinson, CIO and Head of Technology, Property and Procurement EME at Davis Langdon continued: “Fujitsu was able to demonstrate numerous examples of where it has the same values towards service and it’s people as we do. This coupled with the operational model put forward by Fujitsu, showed us that it understood and could align itself with our culture and provide more reliable services, faster implementation and access to proven solutions and cost savings. The keywords here for me are scalability, flexibility and value. This feeds directly into the ‘Better, Faster, Cheaper’ initiative announced earlier in the year by Rob Smith our Senior Partner.”

Anne Stokes, Business Unit Director, Transportation, Manufacturing and Services at Fujitsu UK and Ireland said: “We value the long term relationships we develop with clients and look forward to working with Davis Langdon as part of its business growth agenda. To have similar working practices as our clients is something we strive for and therefore to use continuous improvement as a key part of the contract with Davis Langdon is a really important theme in delivering its growth targets.”
