Taylor Wimpey outsources IT delivery

The UK's largest construction firm has today announced it has outsourced its IT of its housing division in a deal worth 30 million over five years.

Taylor Wimpey was formed when Taylor Woodrow and George Wimpey merged in July 2007. It said it hopes to save 20 per cent on the cost of IT service delivery through the deal which will oversee the integration and management of the merged company's entire IT systems.

This will also include a focus on common infrastructure services across the merged organisation and an improved service delivery model that exploits shared services, which will deliver the headline savings over the lifecycle of the new contract.
