Northern Foods, which makes brands including Fox's biscuits and Goodfellas pizza, has signed a five-year contract with Atos Origin for application maintenance services.
As Northern Food’s third IT strategic service partner, alongside Computacenter and BT, Atos aims to standardise, simplify and automate the IT infrastructure that supports the food company’s daily operational business.
Under the contract, the IT company will also provide consulting and systems changes and developments, and support Northern Foods’ existing SAP Basis and iSeries infrastructure.
According to Atos, the contract will enable Northern Foods to reduce the cost of its IT operations, which in turn will drive operational efficiencies across the business.
Atos Origin will provide its services across Northern Foods’ 20 factories and office locations.
