Following a global tender offer, Capgemini will take responsibility for optimizing and managing one quarter of the Renault Group’s applications portfolio, over the entire application lifecycle. The project will involve over 180 Capgemini professionals and will include technical and functional updates and improvements, technical support, and applications development in Procurement, Quality and Sales.
“To meet the constantly evolving needs of users, a good knowledge of their industry is essential. This enables good alignment between the service provided, current projects and priorities. Capgemini has the functional and industry capabilities required, as well as a great capacity for innovation drawn from its experience with other car manufacturers. These factors all create favorable conditions to meet the needs of Renault,” said François Gitton, Deputy CIO at Renault.
Capgemini’s proven expertise in outsourcing, its Rightshore® global delivery model, and its strong knowledge of the challenges facing the automobile sector, combined with its Sogeti subsidiary’s work with Renault, all played a key role in the car manufacturer’s decision to select Capgemini as its new partner in Application Development and Maintenance.
“This contract is a great opportunity to build a strong partnership with Renault. Our commitment can be seen in both the length of the project and in our ambition to assist the group in its future challenges,” noted Alain Donzeaud, member of the Capgemini Group’s Executive Committee.
