Schaffhausen/New Orleans/Wallisellen - The global industrial company Georg Fischer (GF) has signed a five-year contract with DXC Technology. The North American firm, whose Swiss headquarters are located in Wallisellen in the canton of Zurich, has been tasked with digitalizing the working environment of thousands of employees around the world.

Georg Fischer has awarded a contract to DXC Technology from New Orleans as it seeks to digitalize the working environment of its 15,000 employees based in 34 countries and 130 companies, 61 of which are production facilities, around the world. According to a press release issued by GF, as part of a five-year contract, the modernized infrastructure will “increase flexibility and enable designs, workstreams and files to be shared virtually through a centralized network”. In turn, this will serve to enhance the productivity and connectivity between colleagues.

For Uwe Kühne, CIO at GF, efficient global collaborations between employees represent a crucial factor to achieving success. “With the latest digital technologies, we can bring people together, personalize their experience and generate high-performing teams”, he explains.

The ServiceNow Strategic Business Group of DXC will enable GF to manage and resolve IT issues using digital incident management processes, the press release explains. DXC will use self-service software for asset and device management, helping to minimize disruption across GF’s organization in the process.

“As manufacturers shift to the digital landscape, they face challenges integrating new solutions with their existing IT systems and processes”, comments Chris Halbard, EMEA President, DXC Technology, in the press release. Through its partnership with ServiceNow and Microsoft, DXC is well-placed to support leading companies such as GF in their transformation journeys. mm
