Service provider, CSC, has won a contract with retailer, Kmart, to the value of $36.4 million.
The five-year contract will see CSC provide infrastructure systems and operations support services for more than 400 Kmart and Kmart Tyre and Auto retailers across the country.
The win extends a contract CSC signed in 2004 with Coles Myer, which owned Kmart at the time.
CSC CEO, Nick Wilkinson, said the contract extension was a good win for the company in the tough economic times.
“It’s not a huge deal when you consider we’re a billion dollar company, but from a confidence stand point it’s always good to keep long-standing relationships,” he said.
Part of the Wesfarmers Group, the continued relationships with Kmart would help the integrator establish relationships with other organisations within the group, Wilkinson said. The consumer sector accounts for about $30 million in business for CSC annually.
“The impact of the economic climate varies from sector to sector, but we’re seeing financial services and consumer especially looking to reduce costs at the moment,” he said.
CSC is a provider of IT services in Victoria with a portfolio of clients that include ITSS, Powercor-Citipower, D&B Australia and Tenix Solutions.
The integrator celebrates its 50th year of operation this year.
