Endava and Worldpay sign 3 year Strategic Technology Partnership agreement valued at more than £45m
Having already worked together for 2.5 years, both companies saw the benefits in committing to a multi-year IT services contract. The £45m agreement means that Endava will become Worldpay’s primary near shore development Systems Integration partner for their transformation programme to build the next generation of payments platforms along with the ongoing development and support of Worldpay’s production systems.

It is testament to the strength of our delivery teams in Eastern Europe.”
