Asseco Poland becomes a key IT partner to the Vattenfall Group
Asseco Poland SA signed with Vattenfall AB of Sweden a package of four agreements with the total value exceeding PLN 10 million (gross) and thereby became an important partner to the Vattenfall Group at corporate level.
The package of agreements lays down the rules for cooperation between Asseco Poland and companies incorporated within the Vattenfall Group in the scope of software licensing as well as provision of IT services and consulting. These framework agreements determine the terms and conditions for conclusion of specific agreements, which shall really facilitate the implementation of further projects. Under the licensing agreement the entities authorized by Vattenfall AB are able to order software licenses also for other companies of the Vattenfall Group. The services agreement governs the provision of maintenance and support services over a period of 5 years in relation to the information systems to be implemented under the consulting agreement.
Vattenfall is Europe's fifth largest provider of electricity and the largest producer of heat as well as the largest foreign investor in the Polish electricity market.
Implementation of the Asseco solution will help simplify the structure of billing systems used by Vattenfall companies. At present the billing data of all individual customers are being migrated into the Asseco system as part of the consulting agreement.
“This is the first time when we operate under agreements concluded at corporate level between Asseco Poland and power industry company. We have become Vattenfall’s strategic partner in the area of IT solutions for power industry, equally important as SAP is in the area of ERP systems, or Oracle in databases. It is vital for us that Asseco Poland wins recognition and trust from international companies which, after all, provide strong foundations for partnership at the strategic level. Especially that cooperation with the Vattenfall Group gives us an opportunity to offer our systems for the power industry abroad” – said Paweł Piwowar, Vice President of Asseco Poland.
