AT&T Gains $25 Million Contract From Staffing Firm

AT&T has signed an estimated $25 million, three-year contract to provide Randstad North America, a provider of professional employment services, with an integrated networking solution supporting approximately 500 locations across the United States and Canada.

The solution includes local, long-distance, teleconference services and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications supported by AT&T's fully managed, dedicated high-speed Internet access solution. The contract expands an existing relationship between AT&T and Randstad, in which AT&T's provides secure communications among Randstad's North American branch offices, allowing the company to track its staffing, process payroll, and manage the deployment of thousands of personnel each day.

"We put more than 50,000 people to work everyday. Fulfilling our commitment to our customers and talent in a time-sensitive environment is a huge task that requires expertise and solid business relationships," Larry Clark, chief information officer of Randstad North America, said in a statement. "AT&T provides us with reliable and flexible tools that are an important element of our technology and associated operations workflow system, enabling us to focus on the quality of the transaction for our customers."
