Press Release: CTG Selected to Implement ERP Solution and Secures Multiple Contracts for IT Solutions in Luxembourg
Jan 8, 2020
BUFFALO, N.Y., January 8, 2020 – CTG (NASDAQ: CTG), a leading provider of information technology (IT) solutions and services in North America and Western Europe, today announced a number of recent wins for its IT Solutions offerings in Luxembourg. Most notable among these new engagements, the Company secured a contract with Fonds du Logement (FDL) for the phase two implementation of a company-wide enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. FDL is a market leading residential and commercial real estate agency as well as the government appointed manager of the Housing Fund, which facilitates the sustainable development of affordable housing in Luxembourg. CTG’s new multi-year engagement with FDL includes the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and the development of supporting software to integrate certain third-party applications.
“As part of carrying out our mission to facilitate the availability of affordable housing, both rentals and subsidized sales, we continually face the technical challenges of a consistently expanding number of projects and physical locations,” stated FDL’s Julien Muller, Head of IT. “CTG has demonstrated exceptional business expertise and flexibility in its development of a centralized ERP system solution that is tailored to simplify FDL’s company-wide operations. We welcome this opportunity to extend our collaboration with CTG and benefit from this phase two implementation, which will enable us to better serve the growing housing demand in Luxembourg.”
Prior to CTG completing phase one of the ERP solution in December 2019, the client relied on utilizing numerous applications to manage different areas of its operations, such as accounting, building and office management, and vendor relationships. As part of phase one, CTG’s Luxembourg-based team collaborated closely with FDL to reengineer and develop optimized information management workflows into a centralized system. Building on these results and the insight into the client’s operations and business gained during phase one, phase two will include implementation of Microsoft Dynamics ERP and the development of middleware for the integration of additional applications currently utilized by FDL. CTG recently began work under the new contract, which is anticipated to extend through at least 2021.
“We are excited to be awarded this meaningful ERP solution business from FDL,” commented CTG Vice President, Rénald Wauthier. “The Company’s ongoing success in Luxembourg, including with organizations like FDL, further demonstrates the strategic merits of CTG’s acquisition of Tech-IT early last year, as we increasingly capitalize on our expanded portfolio of end-to-end IT and infrastructure solutions. Following the seamless execution and delivery on phase one, CTG was selected for the phase two implementation based upon our team’s exceptional technical skills and its ability to provide a tailored ERP solution. In addition to greatly valuing this ongoing relationship with FDL, we are very pleased with our recent momentum and growing number of engagements to deliver value-add information management solutions to clients in Europe.”
In addition, CTG recently secured other sizable, new IT Solutions contracts in Luxembourg. These incremental wins included an engagement with a large civil engineering and construction firm for hardware and software implementation. Then, most recently the Company was awarded a broad solutions project to integrate various IT and infrastructure resources along with the implementation of Promaides software at one of the client’s new facilities.
