Boots has extended its ten-year strategic partnership with IT outsourcing firm Steria.
Under a new three-year deal, plus an optional two-year extension, Steria will provide application management for around 350 "business critical" applications.
Through the deal Boots said it was aiming for "a more efficient enhanced service, with identified cost savings and higher levels of performance".
The applications to be managed by Steria under the new agreement support retail, healthcare, HR, desktops and other areas.
Boots said Steria will work collaboratively with itself and its other IT suppliers to identify ongoing efficiencies and cost savings.
Jonathan Vardon, IT director at Boots UK, said, "Over the past decade Steria has demonstrated an ongoing and proactive commitment and we look forward to the future benefits of this partnership."
