Law Soc renews outsourcing deal with Logica
Thursday 19th March… Logica today announced a new £12m five year outsourcing contract with The Law Society (for England & Wales). The outsourcing contract will enable The Law Society to benefit from a 25% reduction in outsourcing costs. This new contract builds on an existing four year relationship. The contract is based on a partnership approach, with Logica providing The Law Society with various IT outsourcing services, including remote infrastructure management, hosting, support and maintenance of the server estate, WAN management and blended applications management for core business systems.
Logica will deliver the outsourced support services through a blended onshore and offshore service delivery model offering The Law Society efficiency and quality improvements combined with significant cost savings, in line with its strategy of centralised delivery of IT Services. In addition to the outsourcing contract, Logica has been invited to participate in The Law Society’s IT Leadership Team. This partnership approach will allow for improved engagement in key IT and business issues, ensuring that The Law Society will have access to Logica’s breadth of technical and consulting expertise. Logica will also be given the opportunity to participate in other initiatives to further upgrade The Law Society’s infrastructure and business systems.
Law Soc CEO Des Hudson said: “Our goal is to protect and promote solicitors across England and Wales and to build on important services to members. These annual savings will help the Society meet its IT investment plans, for example, the substantial spending on our regulatory arm's new systems. Working with a proven and trusted IT partner like Logica allows us to benefit from cost and efficiency savings, focus on our core business and crucially add value to our members.”
