Logica, the technology and business services company, is looking to partner with the world’s most innovative Small and Medium Enterprises. It today kicked off its 2010 Global Innovation Venture Partner (GIVP) Programme to search for the company with the most innovative products and solutions.

Now in its third year, the GIVP Programme invites nominations from across ten countries – UK, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Portugal, US and India. Nominated companies will be judged by a Logica panel and the winner will work with Logica to further develop its product or solution. It will get access to Logica’s global sales resources, go-to-market support and opportunities to engage with client organisations where appropriate.

Speaking about the competition, GBS Bindra, Global Innovation Director, Logica said, “The GIVP Programme is a perfect example of collaborative value creation. For partners, it is an opportunity to make their products and services visible in a highly competitive industry. For Logica, our Innovation partners can support us along the way with new talent and interesting technological developments. Together we can achieve the highest levels of success and meet the needs of our clients. Overall, it’s a perfect example of how different companies can come together to build business value.”

GIVPP 2009 attracted more than 600 nominations from eight countries. Seven country winners and one global winner were identified as Logica’s innovation partners. The global winner for 2009 was a Swedish company - Appear Networks, which has impressive new technology in context-aware software services.

Commenting on the benefits of the partnership Xavier Aubry, CEO, Appear Networks, said, “"The GIVP Programme has been without a doubt a business accelerator for us. After winning the global award in 2009 in a very competitive selection process, we quickly developed a joint go-to-market plan with Logica in key countries. We were able to close our first million Euro deal and generated a substantial pipeline in our target industries within the same year. We had been developing our vision for innovative workforce mobile solutions in the travel & transport sector and with Logica's support, we have now been able to reach out to a wider range of industries such as public sector, healthcare and utilities. The joint value proposal is very strong and fits perfectly with today's requirements - providing innovation that can help clients reduce costs and increase client service."
