T-Systems, the business solutions arm of Deutsche Telekom, has secured a contract to provide telecommunications services to BP. The five-year contract will play a key role in supporting BP’s ongoing efficiency program by delivering significant cost savings. Terms were not disclosed.

            T-Systems will transform BP’s global telecoms services network, enabling it for next-generation voice and data services. In a flexible contract, BP’s business units will have the freedom to choose communications services that align with their specific needs and cost base.

            The agreement introduces a new multi-sourcing model for communications services. The transformation program will simplify BP’s existing network, reducing the number of suppliers to remove complexity, lowering the cost of operations significantly, and ensuring end-to-end service quality.

            In a parallel agreement, Siemens Enterprise Communications (SEN Group) will be providing a global managed service that supports BP’s voice requirements, including managed telephone and audiovisual services. The two companies have extensive experience working together and enjoy a strong track record of successful collaboration.

            Dana Deasy, BP Group CIO, said: “We are looking forward to working with our new strategic partner for BP’s telecoms services. Their expertise, new perspective and energy will give BP a significant opportunity to reduce complexity and lower our overall cost base.”

            “We are proud to have become a key partner for change at BP,” said Reinhard Clemens, CEO of T-Systems. “In the current economic climate, it is imperative that ICT providers demonstrate a clear ability to have a positive impact on their clients’ business performance. From today, it will be a priority for T-Systems to apply our combination of IT and Telecommunications capabilities to deliver strong business results for BP.”
