London, March 16, 2011:
MindTree Limited, a global IT Solutions and Product Engineering Service company today announced that it has secured its first major SAP support deal in the UK having been selected by 2e2, Europe’s fastest growing ICT lifecycle services provider, as a long term applications outsourcing partner. MindTree will provide SAP helpdesk, support and development work for 2e2’s clients.
The appointment of MindTree will allow 2e2 to redirect employees in the UK into more customer facing and consultative roles, providing a sharper focus for the business. A formal inauguration of the 2e2 offshore centre at MindTree Bangalore will take place in April.
“This will increase MindTree’s reach and ability to service local requirements in the UK and perfectly complements our experience of providing offshore expertise in SAP and other enterprise applications,” said Tridip Saha, MindTree’s UK Head. “Partnering with 2e2 also gives us the opportunity to work with clients in areas new to us such as the construction industry. The complementary nature of MindTree and 2e2’s service offerings in the UK market should mean significant benefits will flow through to both companies.”
“Partnering with MindTree will improve delivery of our SAP services and will also lead to increased customer satisfaction, said Nick Grossman, Business Development Director of 2e2. “Our experience of working with MindTree has been very positive and we are already looking at expanding the footprint of the offshore development centre into other areas of our business.”
