Endava and IMG sign multi-year deal for the provision of digital media services
Endava will now manage IMG Digital’s Website Services division which houses web-sites receiving in excess of one billion page impressions per annum.
Endava already design, implement and manage business-critical systems for some of the world’s leading organisations in Financial Services, Telco, Media & Professional Services and was selected as the technical partner after an extensive selection process. As part of the agreement, many of the IMG Digital Media production and development staff will transfer to Endava and continue to service the existing client base.
Carmi Zlotnik, Head of Global Media Operations at IMG Media, said “Endava will be able to provide a depth of technical capabilities and investment that IMG and its clients could benefit from. IMG is looking for a variable cost base, and Endava are able to provide this straight away. We are 100% confident that this move will have a positive impact on existing clients and the prospect of future business opportunities will be improved.”
John Cotterell, CEO Endava, commented “This move outlines Endava’s commitment and investment into Digital Media Services. Boasting a wealth of technically trained talent, Endava is uniquely positioned to ensure we deliver state-of-the-art, cost-effective, personalised services.”
