Orange Business Services (OBS) has announced that Dutch paints and coatings company AzkoNobel has renewed its IT services agreement.
 
The new contract is a “multi-million” five-year contract that builds on the two companies' existing 10-year partnership.
 
Specifically, the new deal covers IT infrastructure services, including an expandable private network for AzkoNobel’s existing 1,200- plus sites, and a global security platform. Also included in the deal are managed LAN services, managed application acceleration services and a fully managed immersive tele-presence platform.
 
Helmut Reisinger, Senior Vice President, Orange Business Services Europe, Russia & CIS said that the agreement, which includes enhancements to the Company’s global delivery SLAs, will ‘drive agility and cost reduction’.
 
This is the second deal with a major Dutch company that OBS has unveiled recently. In June, the operator won a deal to upgrade brewer Heineken’s global communications infrastructure.
 
The news is a boost to the France-based company, which saw revenues decline by five percent in the first six months of the year.
 
Dulux owner AkzoNobel said part of the reason for the contract extension was to help it to achieve its goal of generating half of its total revenues from high-growth markets.
 
“We are constantly looking for ways to better leverage our global scale, focus on end-user segments and to support further growth in both mature and high-growth markets,” said AkzoNobel CIO Pieter Schoehuijs.
