New Delhi: Global technology company HCL Technologies (HCL) on Tuesday announced a new large contract with New Zealand dairy co-operative Fonterra to modernise and manage the entire technology infrastructure Fonterra employees around the world use everyday.
The multi-year partnership with HCL Technologies will consolidate Fonterra's technology suppliers and bring together the Co-op's IT infrastructure services under one umbrella.
The technology services provided by HCL will enhance Fonterra's employee experience, to navigate through their business operations, HCL said in a statement.
