HA NOI (VNS)— FPT Software has signed a three-year contract with German energy supplier E.ON. to provide software services.
A company announcement made last Tuesday said the services comprise software development, testing and project management. The value of the project is expected to be more than US$10 million.
This is the second-largest contract for FPT Software in the energy sector, the first one being a five-year contract with Germany's electricity and gas supplier RWE Group.
The Vietnamese software giant said that the deal with E.ON proved its ability and backed its ambition to become a leading IT service provider in the German market.
It has also signed a contract to provide software development, testing and solution design services for DCI AG, a German company providing creative solutions in the e-commerce sector.
Michael Mohr, general director of DCI AG, said he believed his company had taken the right decision to co-operate with FPT Software.
He said that the Vietnamese firm had skilled staff capable of offering effective consulting services in technical solution design based on DCI AG's platforms.
FPT Software, a member company of the FPT Group, earned revenues of VND421 billion ($20.04 million) from the European market last year, a 117 per cent increase over 2013.
E.ON, formed in June 2000, operates across Europe, Russia and North America with more than 62,000 employees. In 2013, it posted sales of more than EUR122 billion (more than $130.3 billion).
In related news, FPT Software participated in the Cloud Days Spring 2015 event hosted by Japan's Nikkei Group in Tokyo. The event was held from March 12 to 13.
Cloud day is annually hosted two times in Tokyo and Osaka. Last year the event attracted around 130 IT companies and 15,000 visitors. — VNS
