Unisys Cited As A Strong Performer In Independent Research Firm's Report On Global Workplace Services

Stocks in this article: UIS

BLUE BELL, Pa., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today that it has been named a "Strong Performer" in Forrester Research, Inc.'s March 2013 report, The Forrester Wave : Global Workplace Services, Q1 2013. Unisys was one of eight IT services companies that Forrester invited to participate in the report. Unisys received the highest overall client reference scores of any supplier evaluated and a top score for client feedback on general satisfaction.

The Forrester Wave Report evaluated providers of global workplace services, a new category that encompasses traditional end user support for desktop and desk-side services coupled with support for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. Unisys and the other providers were evaluated against 36 key criteria for the strength of current offering, strategy and market presence.

In categorizing Unisys as a Strong Performer, Forrester noted: "Workplace service is among the biggest priorities for Unisys' services business. Unisys' strong current offering was supported by the highest overall customer reference score of any supplier evaluated in our analysis." Unisys was the only provider to receive a perfect score of 5.00 in all four customer satisfaction categories.

"We are pleased to be recognized by Forrester as a Strong Performer in workplace services, and particularly gratified to receive such high scores from our clients for service and satisfaction," said Ron Frankenfield, president of Unisys Global Managed Services. "I believe that this is encouraging validation of our focus on providing world-class levels of client service and satisfaction through our managed services."

The rating adds to Unisys' growing recognition in the market for end user outsourcing and support services. In August Unisys announced that it had been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant in the Gartner, Inc. 2012 Magic Quadrant report on Help Desk Outsourcing Services in North America, and in September Unisys announced it had been positioned in the "Challengers" quadrant of the Gartner, Inc. 2012 Desktop Outsourcing and Help Desk Outsourcing Magic Quadrant reports for Europe.
