Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has signed a new multi-year contract with Chrysler LLC to provide a comprehensive portfolio of IT services.
The scope of this contract integrates the contract TCS announced in February with Chrysler. TCS will deliver IT application and maintenance support services to Chrysler by levering its global network delivery model from various locations around the world, as well as the recently announced TCS Seven Hills Park domestic delivery centre outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, and through a locally recruited team in the Detroit, Michigan region.
TCS' global network delivery model is a collaborative, best-in-class framework of people, processes and infrastructure that taps on TCS' global intellectual assets of tools, methodologies and products to help customers reduce implementation time, realize benefits quicker and achieve business goals.
The project will include a portion of several functional areas within Chrysler, such as sales and marketing, shared services, product development and after sales.
"TCS is proud to play an increasing role in Chrysler's business transformation and global expansion efforts," said N Chandrasekaran, executive director and chief operating officer of Tata Consultancy Services. "Our ability to deliver certainty of results across the entire spectrum of IT services in Chrysler's operations will bring greater efficiencies to their business allowing them to invest more in advance technology and change-the-business initiatives."
The automotive industry is a key focus market for the TCS manufacturing vertical, which accounted for 15.1 per cent of TCS' FY 2007 $4.3 billion global revenues. TCS provides services to many automotive original equipment manufacturers and tier-one companies in North America, Europe and Japan, across the entire automotive value stream including product development, manufacturing, supply chain and customer experience areas.
