Viglen scores through Misys deal

Wins deal to supply 10,000 PCs

System builder Viglen Technology has won a £3 million contract to supply Misys Financial Systems with PCs. The London-based manufacturer will ship 10,000 specially configured computers to Misys customers over the next three years, according to an announcement this morning. Commenting on the company’s success, Viglen CEO Bordan Tkachuk said: "Other suppliers tend to ship commodity units, but our ability to configure our computers to customers’ requirements … is enabling us to beat the multinationals in the more specialist corporate sectors." Last September, Viglen announced plans to transform itself from being purely a PC builder into a value added reseller. This followed its warning that profits would remain linear in the foreseeable future, announcing pre-tax profits of £4.4m on sales of £94.6m. ®
