HKScan Group, a leading Nordic meat company, has today signed an IT infrastructure hosting and consolidation partnership agreement with Atos, an international information services company. The agreement has been signed for a three-year period.
During the last two years, the build-up of one HKScan Group and improving the Group’s operational efficiency have been the cornerstones of HKScan’s strategic agenda. To continue executing its strategy, HKScan is now taking the next steps by consolidating the IT infrastructure in partnership with Atos. Moreover, the partnership agreement includes development of workspace, network and storage services as well as a cloud-enabled IT infrastructure.
“A robust IT infrastructure and access to rich and transparent business information play a vital role in any large business today. Through consolidation of our earlier fragmented infrastructure, we can take a substantial step towards a coherent and customer-oriented HKScan, and at the same time improve our cost efficiency further”, says Aki Laiho, COO, HKScan Group. “The collaboration with Atos also establishes a good platform for further actions to improve HKScan’s operational efficiency across our complex value chains.”
