NEW YORK, July 7, 2003 – American International Technology Enterprises, Inc. (doing business as AIG Technologies), a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), today announced a multi-year mainframe outsourcing services agreement with The Stanley Works (Stanley), a worldwide supplier of tools, hardware and door systems for professional, industrial and consumer use. With the agreement, Stanley will leverage AIG Technologies' (AIGT) “pay according to use” computing model, which the company has been employing continuously for over eight years.
Under the terms of the agreement, AIG Technologies will provide utility-based, complete OS/390 processing services and complementary mainframe support for Stanley. On-going management of Stanley's back-office operations was assumed by AIGT on May 11, 2003, after Stanley's operating environment was effectively migrated to AIGT's Livingston, NJ data center in less than 90 days.
“AIGT's flexible approach provides a true value-add solution that meets Stanley's mainframe processing requirements,” said Paul Madarasz, President of AIG Technologies. “Outsourcing a commodity function such as mainframe processing is becoming more and more prevalent amongst businesses today. With AIGT handling Stanley's back-office operations, Stanley is not only positioned to better manage cost, but it is also freed to focus on strategic IT initiatives that improve its core competencies and allow the company to better serve its vast customer base. AIGT is pleased to have such a well-known, successful firm as Stanley as a client and looks forward to a long-term, value-driven relationship.”
