Yorkshire-based IT Services provider Italik has been included in Yorkshire Water’s £50 million investment in IT over the next four to seven years as one of eight new partners under a “flexible framework”.
Yorkshire Water has announced another multi-million pound investment, which the company hopes will increase innovation, improve efficiency and keep customers’ bills “as low as possible”. The company plans to invest £50 million in IT over the next four to seven years and has brought in eight new partners under a “flexible framework”.
The framework, which will be broken down into two sections – advisory and delivery of IT services -will cover 12 key areas including application management, infrastructure and new projects.
Yorkshire Water said the new structure will allow it to “deliver a better service” for customers at a lower cost and improve innovation through “increased levels of competition and collaboration” among suppliers.
As Jon Munro, Sales Director for Italik explains “We have been working with Yorkshire Water on a number of projects over the past few years, and our inclusion on the IT Framework provides recognition of the services we can deliver to Yorkshire Water. We are looking forward to a great working partnership”
Jo Robinson, IT vendor manager, said: “This is an exciting investment which will allow us to build on the existing IT infrastructure. It has been created to increase our capacity, flexibility and capability to deliver IT services. We chose our partners based on capabilities, but also their ethics and culture to ensure they would fit in with what we want to achieve.”
Hexaware, Sopra-Steria, DXC, Capgemini, PA Consulting, Infosys, Italik and Wipro have all won contracts with Yorkshire Water and will start working with the company on 1 April.
