Xansa inks 19 m pounds contract with UK co

April 03, 2007 13:33 IST

Outsourcing and technology company Xansa has signed a six-year 19 million pounds (Rs 161 crore or Rs 1.61 billion) contract to provide finance and accounting and payroll services to National Health Service professionals of the United Kingdom.

Xansa's NHS Shared Business Services, by virtue of the deal, becomes the largest external payroll processing provider in the NHS and would serve 58,000 flexible workers, customers and suppliers, a company release said.

NHS Professionals was developed by the UK's Department of Health and provides a range of services, including nursing, medical among others to 124 trusts across England.

Under the contract, Xansa will provide over 5 million pounds (Rs 42 crore or Rs 420 million) guaranteed cost savings over the life of the contract to NHS Professionals, it added.

UK-based Xansa has offices in India in Chennai and Noida, apart from its Pune centre. The service would be delivered from Xansa's integrated delivery centre in Pune and Leeds -- where both NHS Shared Business Services and NHS Professionals' National Finance Centre are located.

Commenting on the announcement Xansa Chief Executive Alistair Cox said: "This contract represents a step change for NHS Shared Business Services, expanding its payroll offering to make it the largest payroll provider in the NHS. It also further underlines NHS Shared Business Services' position as the leading back-office shared service provider in the UK's public sector."
