Unisys (UIS) Expands Foothold with Contract in Costa Rica


Unisys Corporation UIS was recently awarded a three-year contract by public utility company Empresa de Servicios Públicos de Heredia (ESPH) in Costa Rica. According to the contract, Unisys will provide its endpoint management support to 320 branches, over 2,800 types of computer equipment, 500 corporate servers and more than 400 network elements for ESPH.

The Deal

This is the first contract following the partnership of Unisys and ServiceNow in Latin America. Using Unisys and ServiceNow’s technical expertise, ESPH will be able to address important aspects including network equipment configuration, managing abound 3,000 users of smart devices, service-level agreement handling and various other important things.

This contract will enable Unisys reach out to ESPH’s high-end clients, which in turn will help enhance its foothold in the area.

Recent Deals

Earlier this year, Unisys was awarded a contract by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to transfer email communications of all 4,000 agency employees to a cloud-based platform. The five-year contract with OCC was worth approximately $11.2 million. Per the contract, Unisys will provide its expertise in analyzing, designing, transition planning and developing services to enable the OCC securely transfer all of its email services to the cloud.

Also the company was acknowledged as one of the first partners to have achieved AWS (Amazon Web Services) Government Competency by AWS, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. AMZN. This is a new component of the AWS Competency Program that recognizes companies that demonstrate technical expertise and achievements in delivering specialized cloud-based solutions to customers. This partnership has also helped Unisys expand its client base across various government agencies that are linked with AWS. Such deals help the company to gain an edge over its peers in the industry.

Moving Forward

Based in Blue Bell, PA, Unisys specializes in securing client operations, increasing efficiency of data centers, enhancing support to their end users and constituents and modernizing their enterprise applications. The company has over 20,000 employees serving clients around the world.
