French technology services consultancy Capgemini, through its local unit, has signed a 13-year contract with Brazilian group ABC Algar to support the company's operations in the country, the former said in a statement without reporting the price tag.
The initiative is expected to increase ABC Algar's productivity by 45%, and improve the quality and flexibility of services to support growth expectations.
Under contract terms, Capgemini will offer accounting, human resources management, taxes, payroll and procurement services.
Capgemini will provide business process outsourcing services, with some 150 employees using Oracle and BPOpen solutions from its Brazil delivery centers.
The project will include standardization of processes and service levels across two Algar business units and nine of its companies, covering agribusiness, aviation, security, technology and media. This will be made possible through Capgemini BPO technology and its delivery network of more than 1,000 people in Brazil.
The ABC Algar group's companies are organized into three business units - technology and telecommunications, agribusiness, and services.
