ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Looking after your pay
Did you know that France-based Atos Origin processes transactions of up to €220 billion every day on the French central payments platform used by 220 banks across the world to exchange money? Where you also aware that it is the largest employer of health care professionals in the UK, outside of the NHS, or that it processes and distributes one in 10 pay slips in the UK – over 25 million pay slips every year? And that it is the global information technology partner of the Olympic Games, having provided the entire IT infrastructure for the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008?
The 50,000-strong corporation splits its business into three core service areas: business consulting, systems integration and managed operations, more commonly known as outsourcing. The consulting outfit operates with the aid of 3,000 consultants in the company’s key regions of France, Spain, the UK and the Netherlands. It provides “fully integrated, end-to-end solutions”, ranging from IT, financial and procurement leadership, to people and change, strategy and innovation, and customer management leadership. But the bulk of the firm’s revenue comes from recurring, multiyear outsourcing and application maintenance contracts, which made up 68 per cent of the €5.48 billion made in 2008.
