Ordina, Rabobank agree five-year renewal of contract for application design, development and testing

Ordina and Rabobank today renewed their ICT cooperation agreement for a five-year period, taking the existing agreement through to the end of 2017. As one Rabobank’s strategic partners in the field of Application Development & Maintenance (ADM), Ordina will continue to design, develop and test the banking group’s ICT applications.

Stépan Breedveld, CEO at Ordina says: “We are extremely proud that Rabobank has once again chosen Ordina as its strategic ICT partner for the next five years. Since 2007, we have demonstrated that Ordina is a stable and committed partner that is able to safeguard the continuity of its clients’ services, and reliable in terms of providing the required expertise and experience in the field of Rabobank applications.”

René Steenvoorden, CIO at Rabobank: “As a Dutch ICT partner, Ordina is in an excellent position to meet Rabobank’s wishes and requirements crucial to safeguarding the continuity of its services, boosting effectiveness at competitive rates and providing access to ICT talent.”

The new agreement replaces the existing contract between Rabobank and Ordina closed on 1 May 2007, in which Ordina worked with a subscontractor for the offshore services.  With a view to maximising the flexibility of its options, Rabobank has decided to raise the role of this offshore partner to an equal level in the new situation.
