EDS Lands Contract with CAT Group

Information technology outsourcing firm EDS revealed Monday that it has received a seven-year contract from the CAT Group to develop, deploy and support that company's software applications. The financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. The CAT Group is an automotive logistics and transport provider that employs more than 2,800 people worldwide.
