Capgemini announced that IGATE will now operate exclusively under the Capgemini brand, six months after the completion of its acquisition of the US-based corporation.
The re-branding of IGATE as Capgemini is a key step in the integration process which has seen 31,000 former IGATE employees join Capgemini.The acquisition makes North America the Group’s largest region by far, with 30% of revenues, while boosting Capgemini’s Global Production Center network to more than 96,000 employees and augmenting its expertise in the Financial Services sector.
The strong combination of IGATE and Capgemini’s service offerings and capabilities in the fields of innovation and industrialization, has already resulted in some initial joint client wins including one of the largest North American property and casualty companies,a leading global risk advisor, as well as insurer and reinsurance broker.
“Only six months after the completion of the acquisition of IGATE, our clientsare already benefitingfrom the integration of talent and the combined portfolio. It’s been a natural fit,” comments Virginie Régis,Group Marketing & Communications Director and Member of the Group Executive Committee at Capgemini. “Operating as one brand means that we can offer our clients seamless access to a wide set of expertise. Itis an acknowledgement that the brand transition phase is complete and that we are now going to market officially as one unified company.”
