Paris, February 24 2021 – GEFCO, a global expert in supply chain solutions and leading provider of automotive logistics in Europe, has renewed its contract with Capgemini incorporating a new project dedicated to its infrastructure modernization. The multi-cloud approach will increase operational efficiency and agility, reduce technical obsolescence and optimize the cost of recurring services.
Thanks to its deep expertise and GEFCO’s long term trust in its infrastructure management, since 2013, Capgemini has been able to modernize GEFCO’s Information Systems across the globe. Looking ahead, in addition to the integration of new services, the infrastructure’s transformation into a public multi-cloud approach will provide GEFCO with greater flexibility and the ability to optimize its resource consumption. In these turbulent times with strong variations in business activity, the possibility to adjust the resources allocated in the cloud is crucial. Capgemini will also help to transform the GEFCO IT department’s operating model, with a digital workstation management service for 8,500 users, including a new “service desk” featuring a chat bot and automated AI features.
“GEFCO is taking an important step in its transformation process; the modernization of our information system is key for our employees and our customers. We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with the Capgemini teams who are working alongside us to make our IT systems more robust,” said Sophie Baudoux, Information Systems Executive Vice President at GEFCO.
“Capgemini has been supporting GEFCO in its digital projects since 2013. We are very pleased that GEFCO is confirming its confidence in the team with this new contract. Our expertise and know-how, reinforced by the contribution of our Cloud Center of Excellence and the support of our key partners in the public cloud, have enabled us to stand out from the crowd and provide GEFCO with the trusted digital services to continue its transformation journey,” said Olivier Tarrit, Executive Director of Cloud Infrastructure Services at Capgemini in France.
