Consulting and technology firm Capgemini has clinched a five-year contract with Swedish energy company Vattenfall.

Capgemini will implement an accelerated programme to transform and then manage Vattenfall’s finance and procurement services in its key regions including the Nordics, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.

Having completed a number of acquisitions in recent years, Vattenfall is keen to rationalize and harmonize its complex finance and procurement environment to introduce agility and flexibility and gain efficiencies.

Vattenfall hires Capgemini to implement ‘service transformation’

This it says is essential to support its plans for business transformation.

“We were looking for a provider who was capable of helping us to implement a programme of accelerated service transformation,” said Stefan Dohler, Vattenfall’s chief financial officer.

“Capgemini demonstrated a proven track record in supporting large and complex organizations through a period of great change, delivered with a flexible and collaborative approach.”  

Aruna Jayanthi, Head of Business Services at Capgemini, said Vattenfall “is keen to embrace change and to stay competitive in its complex market, and we believe there is a strong cultural fit between the two teams that will deliver sustainable transformation in the years to come.”
