Centrica chooses Fujitsu to help create its next-generation workplace

Thursday, June 6, 2013

Centrica, the parent company of British Gas, has signed a new deal with Fujitsu, which will see the IT services supplier transform its desktop estate, by managing the migration of 26,500 users from Windows XP to Windows 7.

With Fujitsu already providing desktop managed services for Centrica's 37,000 staff as part of a five year deal agreed in December 2010, this new agreement signals a deeper, more strategic partnership for the two organisations. Worth a total of £4 million, the desktop transformation project kicked off in Spring 2013 - and is set to run to the end of the year.

Furthermore, the move brings Centrica a step closer to Windows 8, with Fujitsu working closely with the energy supplier to identify the users within the organisation who would benefit from the operating platform.
