The LogicaCMG group is unifying all its existing brands under one new name - Logica. The LogicaCMG brand, along with the brands of Edinfor, Unilog and WM-data, will transition to the new global brand name today in conjunction with the company’s preliminary financial results for 2007.

Andy Green, CEO of Logica, said: “Today’s move to use the Logica name across the world is exciting news for our customers and Logica people. Our local brands such as Edinfor, Unilog and WM-data have excellent track records in their local markets. We are committed to providing our customers with excellent local services, whilst at the same time combining this with the innovative capabilities and expertise of a 39,000 strong global organisation. The Logica brand will stand for high quality, innovative services supplied by committed local teams and supported by best-in-class global expertise and delivery.”

Logica combines the local strengths of all its previous brands with the scale, capability and reach to compete effectively for major opportunities and larger customers. The enlarged group draws on the strength of the local businesses, enhancing its ability to cross-sell propositions and capabilities.

The company is focussed on creating an integrated European IT services company with a strong international network. Today’s launch underlines Logica’s commitment to providing the best possible service to customers around the world with one set of systems and processes and a single set of values.

A clear example of this commitment is the creation of a new Outsourcing Services division . This division will take end-to-end responsibility for outsourcing services, ensuring that customers have access to the most efficient and cost-effective blend of onshore, nearshore and offshore support. It will provide outsourcing sales and design specialists to all Logica’s customers. The division will incorporate around 9,000 Logica employees working today in centres across the globe. Logica currently has delivery capability in India, the Philippines, Morocco, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia, Slovakia and Portugal.
