AssurIT’s CEO Stephen Morris is delighted with the agreement being signed.
“This is a significant new customer for AssurIT and IBM BC&RS, they are a truly global organisation and a household name. After a long and careful selection process they have chosen us to be a key partner for at least the next 3 years, I think this is a tremendous reflection of the trust they place in AssurIT. They selected AssurIT and IBM based on our track record and the high level of service we provide, we also offered superb value for money and that was also a key factor in the decision. We are looking forward to a successful and long-term partnership.”
