The Birmingham Post (27 Feb, p17) reported that the IT outsourcing group is now looking to expand in Europe while growing its commercial client base in the financial services and telecoms sectors at home and extending its public sector reach into government agencies and businesses.
Bridget Blow, chief executive, said: 'We have a number of customers in the commercial sector who are already doing business in Europe. Last year we worked in eight European countries and to expand this role we need a permanent presence there.'
The firm's links with local authorities were further cemented last week with the announcement of a deal with InfoBank to help local authorities with their procurement policies, enabling them to buy over the internet, reduce costs and make efficiency savings.
