“HOCHTIEF renews IT contract with Atos”

Essen, August 15, 2012

Atos, an international IT services company, today announced that it has renewed its contract with HOCHTIEF, an international construction services provider. The announcement extends the existing outsourcing contract through to 2017 and for the first time covers desktop services for international employees, as well as those in German speaking countries.


Atos will provide desktop services and support for 8,500 employees together with network and project services. It will also provide file and print services as well as application services for software products ranging from simple office applications through to construction-specific Computer-Aided Design applications.


"Modern and flexible IT is indispensable for the entire range of business fields at HOCHTIEF," says Wolfgang Homey, Member of the Management Board at HOCHTIEF Solutions AG. "With its industry knowledge, Atos is in a position to support our very complex process flows and has shown itself to be a strong and reliable IT partner over the past years."


Atos has been looking after the desktop services for several thousand users at HOCHTIEF since 2004, primarily in the German-speaking countries. As part of the extension it was now possible to expand the contract to also cover international projects at HOCHTIEF.


"Our strong position in the managed services environment means that we can put together an attractive service package for HOCHTIEF and provide our services cost effectively," says Winfried Holz, CEO of Atos. "We are pleased that we will be able in future to also contribute to HOCHTIEF's success at international level through our highly standardized services."
