Press release from the issuing company

Dallas  – Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS), A Xerox Company, today announced a seven-year contract to deliver finance and accounting (F&A) services to Atos Origin.  This agreement represents the first major European contract since Xerox acquired ACS earlier this year.

Atos Origin has been a Xerox customer since 2008 when it began receiving print infrastructure services. The new arrangement with ACS includes a full suite of F&A services, such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, and general accounting.  Improving business processes is viewed by Atos Origin as a crucial step in achieving long-term performance and profitability goals.

"Working with Xerox and ACS, we can control costs and better manage the technology, software and work processes that are behind the scenes of our business," said Michel-Alain Proch, Group CFO of Atos Origin. "This relationship will help to build a secure foundation to deliver successful services and solutions to our client base."

Under the terms of the contract, ACS will operate the Atos Origin finance center based in Lodz, Poland. This facility is the latest addition to ACS' global network of F&A service delivery centers and will be supported by hiring 150 full-time Atos Origin employees.  ACS will also implement a range of Xerox services, including workflow, CRM and compliance management solutions to improve operational efficiency at Atos Origin.

"This deal represents the combined power of Xerox and ACS – helping clients operate as productively and seamlessly as possible so they can focus on delivering quality service to their customers," said Kent Schnacker, group president, Financial Services, ACS.

ACS manages $35 billion in fixed assets, processes $421 billion in global payables and performs 180,000 account reconciliations annually. It also processes payroll for more than 500,000 customer employees in 12 countries and responds to more than three million customer service calls every year.
