Belgium’s largest telco makes Infosys pick

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Proximus, Belgium’s largest telco, has selected Indian IT and outsourcing major Infosys to carry out a large-scale business transformation – named Excite - which among other things will see a reduction from Proximus’ current 40 legacy systems down to a mere six.

The “multi-year” deal (precise details were not available at press time) will also see Infosys deploying tools across a variety of finance and procurement activities, realigning business processes and remodelling Proximus’ portfolio of enterprise-level offerings.

Proximus CIO Geert Goethals enthused that the Excite project will “establish greater agility, collaboration, and bring in superior quality and efficiency in the way IT and business interacts”, adding that Excite will “transform the way we sell professional services to our enterprise clients”.

Meanwhile Infosys’ President and Head of Energy, Utilities, Telecommunications and Services said that his firm is “pleased to be a part of Proximus’ journey of becoming a digital services provider”, adding that today’s companies “need to continuously deliver more value and superior experiences to its customers, and the same applies to the telecommunications industry especially given the highly competitive nature of its business.”
