The parent company FPT Slovakia has earned 100 million USD for its further development until 2024
The most valuable contract in the history of its business was signed by FPT Software, the “mother” of FPT Slovakia operating in Košice. The contract worth total of 100 million USD was concluded with the main European energy company innogy SE. It will guarantee the FPT not only revenues for the period of 2018-2024, but also opportunities for development in the energy service sector.
“Thanks to this agreement, we are strengthening the working environment with our largest customer for at least another seven years, which will also allow us to grow as FPT Slovakia,” Olaf Baumann, managing director of FPT Slovakia said. He added, however, that the contract with an established European energy company is perceived as “an amazing opportunity to gain access to the most up-to-date trends in the area of highly transforming utility business.” FPT Software will provide technology solutions based on SAP, IoT, Cloud, and Digital Transformation Platforms on the basis of this innogy contract.
According to Frank Wendiggensen, innogy sales manager, current megatrends for the energy industry are a challenge to provide solutions along with partners. “And we found a reliable partner in the FPT,” he said.
For more than 250 members of the IT specialist community in Košice, this means stabilisation of working positions in the framework of cooperation with the largest customer and opportunity for further development. Their main tasks include software development, implementation and maintenance of SAP solutions, independent testing and quality assurance of IT services within the energy sector. They provide their services within the pan-European market for smart housing, development and support for business applications.
As executive manager for FPT key staff for innogy SE, Heiko Bergmann specified, successful cooperation between innogy and FPT is based on its own “best shore” model: “Thanks to it, we ensure high quality and flexibility in providing our services from Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Philippines and Vietnam and our clients benefit from dynamic, innovative and experienced teams. “
FPT Software’s largest contract, in its nearly 20-year history, with the rapidly evolving innogy SE, will provide also Slovak employees with access to knowledge, resources, and innovation skills in the IT sector, in order to be successful in the ever-changing market of energy services.
