iGate to operate exclusively under Capgemini
IT services company, iGate, will operate exclusively under the Capgemini brand. This news comes six months after the announcement that the consulting, technology and outsourcing services company acquired iGate.
According to the company, the rebranding of iGate as Capgemini is a key step in the integration process, which sees 31,000 former iGate employees join Capgemini.
The acquisition makes North America the group's largest region by far, with 30 per cent of revenues, while boosting Capgemini’s global production center network to more than 96,000 employees and augmenting its expertise in the financial services sector.
Capgemini group marketing and communications director, Virginie Régis, said the combination of iGate and Capgemini’s service offerings and capabilities in the fields of innovation and industrialisation has resulted in some initial joint client wins.
Régis said this includes one of the largest North American property and casualty companies, a global risk advisor, insurer and reinsurance broker, as well as an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) consolidation initiative for a major food and beverage company.
“Only six months after the completion of the acquisition of iGate, our clients are already benefiting from the integration of talent and the combined portfolio. It’s been a natural fit.
“Operating as one brand means that we can offer our clients seamless access to a wide set of expertise. It is an acknowledgement that the brand transition phase is complete and that we are now going to market officially as one unified company,” Régis added.
