Computacenter yesterday lauded cost management controls in a trading statement to analysts. Its upbeatish assessment will please shareholders but less so the 26 top grade engineers based in the UK customer engineering division who are being cost-controlled out of the company.

The reseller issued a call for voluntary redundancies on Monday. If not enough come forward by tomorrow, the company will issue compulsory redundancies next week.

In a letter, technical staff were also told that there was no prospect of promotions for the forseeable future. ®
