This is the third time this contract has been extended

Unilever, one of the world's largest consumer goods companies, has awarded

BT a three-year extension to its IT outsourcing contract.

BT announced today that this is the third time this contract has been extended since BT won its first contract with the Anglo-Dutch company in November 2002.

BT is one of the world's leading providers of communications services and solutions.

BT has worked with the company for more than a decade, providing innovative and sustainable network services and solutions, the communications company said.

According to BT, the new deal reaffirms Unilever's commitment to using BT's portfolio and managed services around the world to help it achieve its ambitious plans to grow its business, while reducing its environmental footprint and increasing its social impact.          

"As well as delivering a fully integrated network providing voice, data, video and mobility services to the company's 173,000 employees across nearly 100 countries, BT is also delivering collaborative services such as audio-conferencing and video-conferencing," the company said in a statement.

The original contract, announced in November 2002, was the first comprehensive global telecommunications outsource contract ever undertaken by BT and remains one of its largest global deals. By working in partnership, BT said it has helped transform Unilever's infrastructure into one of the most modern corporate networks in the world.
