Norway Post has selected Tata Consultancy Services and European IT company Capgemini to modernise its technology infrastructure and reduce costs. The companies were contracted for $43 million (about Rs 232 crore) each.

“The new contracts will make it possible to reduce costs considerably and gives us access to relevant expertise…,” Morten Stodle, Chief Information Officer at Norway Post, said in a statement.

The Nordic mail and logistics group delivers more than 36 million packages and 2.2 billion letters per year.

The Tata group company will provide a range of application development and support services to Nordic Post under the six-year, multi-million contract, TCS said in a statement.

TCS has also been entrusted to coordinate and drive overall transition and transformation programme across multiple vendors. The services will be delivered through its travel, transportation and hospitality group.

“The postal industry is one of the most impacted by the disruptive power of technology, wherein growth of e-mails, social media and mobile messaging has impacted traditional business models. Conversely, there are tremendous growth opportunities for this industry by leveraging the transition towards the new digital consumer,” Amit Bajaj, Head of North Europe at TCS, said.

In a separate statement, Capgemini Norge AS, a part of the Capgemini group, said it won the contract for delivery of application management and development of core applications.

Capgemini will provide the services from delivery centres in Oslo in Norway, Helsingborg in Sweden and Mumbai in India. The contract includes outsourcing of central applications, such as enterprise resource planning and data warehousing.

Capgemini, which has been working with Norway Post for more than a decade, will act as a strategic partner in its modernisation plans.
