The Australian arm of global automotive finance firm, LeasePlan, has penned a three-year $15 million ICT deal with CSC.
Under the contract, CSC will provide application management and support services for the company’s SAP customer relationship management leasing system.
LeasePlan managing director, Spiro Haralambopoulos, said the agreement would make use of CSC’s global SAP Finance Leasing Centre, based in Germany.
“Our aim is to provide LeasePlan with a consistent and stable service that will consolidate the performance of their critical business systems and allow them to leverage their investment by rolling out a shared service model to their 30 global operating subsidiaries,” CSC Australia president, Gavin Larkings, said in a statement.
CSC recently acquired e-health provider iSoft for $US188 million ($AUD180 million), following months of negotiations.
The ICT firm’s director of health services highlighted the research and development portfolio of iSoft as a key attraction in its takeover bid.
The California-based parent company of CSC Australia confirmed buy-out talks with iSoft back in April with CSC expecting to complete integration of the company and its 3300 employees by the end of September.
