Paris, 15 May 2018 – SPIE ICS, the digital services subsidiary of the SPIE group, announces the creation of a business unit dedicated to its partner Cisco. This new innovative mode of collaboration will strengthen a long-standing strategic partnership by enabling new market demands to be anticipated.
Made up of experts focused on the design, commercialisation and implementation of Cisco solutions, the new structure - the first of its kind within SPIE ICS - is designed to meet two major objectives: the development of new uses and the improvement of communication processes. It is aimed in particular at Intermediate-Sized Enterprises (i.e. companies with between 250 and 4,999 employees) in the Île-de-France region.
Managed in collaboration with the SPIE ICS commercial team, the new business unit brings together the expertise of two major IT players across the entire service chain (unified communications, intuitive networks, data centres, digital infrastructures, etc.). Focused on client uses and aimed at end users, the global solutions on offer will thus benefit from increased process standardisation and integrated security. The aim of the collaboration is to provide a quick return on investment for clients in a range of business sectors (finance, services, property, etc.)
“This rapprochement is a response to the increasing pace of digital transformation projects by combining Cisco’s technological expertise with SPIE ICS’s digital know-how to create solutions focused on client performance and user well-being” explains Jérôme Beaufils, director of SPIE ICS's service and financial activities in the Île-de-France region.
Philippe Dumont, senior partners and services director at Cisco, adds: “The aim of this new dimension of the collaboration between Cisco and its historical partner, SPIE ICS, is to provide end clients with a more complete service offering. Through this dedicated engagement model, we are able to facilitate their access to the digital transformation.”
