IT services monolith Getronics is expanding its partnership with Indian outsourcer MindTree.
The two firms, which have worked together for seven years, have now formalised a joint service delivery agreement. The pair intend to bolster the range of services they can deliver together and work hand-in-hand on global IT services projects.
Over the last seven years, Getronics has outsourced 450 engineering roles to MindTree's around-the-clock delivery centres in Bangalore and Chennai. The two companies expect more "significant engagements in the future".
Acting Getronics chief executive Steven van Schilfgaarde said: "This strategic partnership between MindTree and Getronics has proven itself over the last seven years on two key objectives – cost reduction and improved quality of service – and now expands to include a joint go-to-market agreement."
Parthasarathy NS, head of infrastructure management services and independent testing at MindTree, added: "The engagement with Getronics is significant as it is a testimony of MindTree's ability to take up large-scale engagements and be measured on stringent SLA-based deliverables for managing critical IT infrastructure."
