Logica announces innovation partner programme

Bangalore May 15, 2012 - Leading technology and business service company, Logica, is daring Indian and international enterprises to showcase their most innovative solutions – and get on board for marketing partnerships.
For the fifth year in a row, Logica, has launched its Global Innovation Venture Partner (GIVP) programmeo, opening its doors for organisations to submit their entries in its search for the business with the most innovative products and solutions.
The contest is driven from India, from where innovation initiatives across Logica worldwide are spearheaded. This year Logica has extended the number of participating countries from seven to ten, adding Norway, Spain and Morocco to last year’s list of the UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Portugal and India.
Nominated companies will be judged by a Logica panel and the winner will gain access to Logica’s global sales resources, go-to-market support and have opportunities to engage with client organizations where appropriate. The solution will also be added to Logica’s Global Portfolio Catalogue.
Qualities the judges are looking for in a company are the originality of a product, the potential of the idea and whether it is aligned to Logica’s client needs.
Over 400 companies participated in last year’s GIVP programme. Eight country winners and one global winner were identified to partner with Logica. Through a joint sales and marketing partnership with Logica, former winner Appear Networks deployed a mobile workforce solution for the MTR Stockholm subway.
Says GBS Bindra, global innovation director, Logica: “This programme is an important initiative through which we identify new partners who are as committed as us to innovation. It is testimony to the success of the programme that we have been able to extend the invitation to three additional countries. As always, I look forward to working with the new innovation partner that comes from this year’s programme.”
