Lloyd's bets on Unisys

£10m on desktops and servers

Insurance market Lloyd's has signed a £10m ($17m) contract with Unisys to provide desktop and servers. The five-year contract covers 1,400 desktop computers and 200 servers. Lloyd's has also bought two ES7000 Unisys servers.

Unisys will deliver desktop support to Lloyd's employees from its centre in Milton Keynes, and it will manage the servers remotely from Schipol in Holland. It is the first time Lloyds has used remote management.

Chris Rawson, chief information officer at Lloyd's, said he was impressed with Unisys's professionalism and knowledge shown during the procurement process. "Unisys also presented an imaginative proposition designed to continually improve the quality of services delivered in line with our organisational change and business objectives." ®
