Georgia, IBM strike asset management deal

The state of Georgia has hired IBM Corp. to manage its IT assets, as well as its fleet and facilities inventory.

The eight-month, $2.9 million enterprise asset management system pact also calls for IBM to document and process the state's surplus assets and inventory.

IBM will implement enterprise software from MRO Software Inc. of Bedford, Mass., to help the state optimize the longevity and productivity of its assets and manage its fleet of more than 21,000 vehicles.

The two companies also will train the state's purchasing staff to take over the new management system after the contract ends.

Georgia expects to save $25 million in fleet management costs during the first year, IBM said in a statement.
