Orange Business Services has signed a 4-year contract worth over €50 million with ZF, an automotive supplier headquartered in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
The €35.2 billion ZF invests about six percent of its sales in research and development – ensuring continued success through the design and engineering of innovative technologies.
The contract includes the integration of former TRW Automotive into the ZF Group. Both ZF and TRW were existing Orange Business Services customers.
The integration process covered both Business VPN and hybrid networks, along with more than 13 different services and solutions for 350 locations and 137,000 employees. Orange merged its two globally split support teams and helpdesks.
The services Orange provides for the merged company include network with optimization, Internet connectivity, security services, unified communications as a service (UCaaS), video conferencing, and consulting.
The management of this diverse and comprehensive network infrastructure by Orange Business Services helps ensure the continuing success of ZF as one of the world’s leading suppliers for the automotive industry.
“We are happy to continue our productive partnership with Orange Business Services and to have had them handle the merger of the two networks of ZF and ZF TRW in such a professional and seamless manner,” said Thomas Fiehm, vice president – Service Center IT Infrastructure & Operations at ZF Group.
“It’s essential for ZF to be efficient and effective across the entire company, spanning the world. We are happy they chose to renew their contract with us, reaffirming their trust in our expertise and ability to handle the merger of both companies’ global networks and associated services smoothly,” said Helmut Reisinger, executive vice president, International at Orange Business Services.
