News : Tesco Signs Contract Renewal with Steria
Steria, a provider of IT-enabled business services, announces that it has renewed its contract with Tesco to support and develop the retailer's mission-critical IT services, including distribution, stock replenishment, product, pricing and payroll systems. The application management and development contract will run for a further three years.
The contract has been renewed due to Steria’s proven results in maintaining and enhancing Tesco’s core IT operations through delivery excellence, use of offshore services and improvements in productivity. Steria will continue to develop and support Tesco’s mission-critical distribution and replenishment systems, which deliver stock, including fresh produce, into shops and into the hands of customers every day.
Chris Evans, the IT Director previously in charge of Supply Chain and Distribution at Tesco, and now heading the company’s Marketing IT team said, "We view Steria’s staff as an extension of our team, as they work so closely with our employees on a day-to-day basis. Steria has delivered impressive results, consistently over many years. We look forward to continuing to work closely together in future to deliver further improvements that help Tesco to stay at the forefront of retail in the UK."
