NCR Signs Global Services Deal With BT

Stocks in this article: NCR

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) announced today that it has signed a five-year deal to provide delivery and integration services for BT’s multivendor Converged LAN Connect and IPT solutions for BT enterprise customers in over 100 countries.

The deal is part of BT's strategic sourcing initiative that is enabling it to offer a more extensive, integrated and consistent set of solutions and services on a global basis. This will make it easier for BT’s multinational customers to increase employee productivity, improve customer interactions and reduce costs by combining fixed, wireless and VPN access into a seamless, unified solution – regardless of the underlying technology used or office location.

“BT’s customers choose us for our ability to deliver reliable and scalable connectivity solutions on a global basis," said Andrew Small, Vice President, Customer Premises Equipment, BT Global Services. "We need partners who can meet their expectations for consistently high service levels throughout the installation, maintenance and upgrade cycle wherever they operate in the world. NCR delivers on all those points and more and we’re looking forward to working with them as part of our ‘right first time’ approach to service delivery.”

The rising use of smartphones, tablets, video streaming, and social collaboration platforms – combined with new business analytics tools and the virtualisation of IT resources – are putting renewed strain on enterprise networks. As a result, investing in and optimising converged LAN platforms remains a top priority for CIOs.

Nadine Routhier, vice president NCR Telecom and Technology, commented, “NCR has the global scale and multivendor skills to enable enterprises with globally distributed and mobile workforces to reduce costs and increase collaboration through the strategic use of innovative unified communication solutions. Working with BT is a fantastic endorsement for NCR and underlines our success in executing on our services growth strategy.”
