Apr 09, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Orange Business Services has signed a five-year, over $100 million outsourcing contract with Japan Tobacco International, or JTI, the international business of Japan Tobacco Inc, a tobacco product manufacturer.
Orange provides most of JTI's worldwide telecom infrastructure and services in more than 50 countries. With this new contract, JTI and Orange agreed to extend this partnership for five additional years, creating joint opportunities to collaborate in new areas of service and technology.
Diego De Coen, JTI CIO, said: "Our 17-year relationship with Orange Business Services is built on trust and mutual success. Such a long-term relationship is nearly unheard of these days and this contract renewal was not a given. Instead, Orange Business Services proved again that its competitive strength, unmatched global reach and comprehensive portfolio made it the best choice for JTI as we continue to evolve our global telecom infrastructure and services."
Helmut Reisinger, Senior vice president Europe, Orange Business Services, said: "Over the years, we have developed a very strong partnership with JTI. We are grateful and proud that we have been entrusted with this contract for another five years.
"This is certainly mainly due to the quality of services we have been providing to JTI, even during the days of 2011 turbulences in times of the Japan earthquake or the 'Egyptian spring' where our business continuity plans proved to be beneficial to a lot of multinationals such as JTI. Building on our success, we look forward to collaborating with JTI on innovative solutions over the next several years."
