AMSTELVEEN, The Netherlands, November 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Rendeck Automatisering B.V. and Different IT B.V. today announced that they have started a joint venture to market and deliver a unique combination of services in the European IT market. Rendeck - founded in 1976 - is an IT services and solutions provider specialising in IT performance and infrastructure management and support. Different IT is a staffing and recruitment specialist that has developed a new concept to deliver low cost, highly skilled IT expertise in the UK and the Benelux. By combining the strengths of the two companies, Rendeck Different IT can offer a truly low-cost, one-stop-shop solution that will have a significant impact on the markets in which it operates.

Especially in today's economic climate, companies are increasingly striving to cut costs while maintaining the high quality and flexibility their IT organisations demand, said Russell Barnes, Director and co-founder of Different IT. However, existing overhead structures make it hard for traditional IT services companies to offer their clients significant cost reductions.

Marcel Markus, owner/director of Rendeck, agrees. Very often, the difference between personnel costs and what a customer is ultimately charged is hard to justify, even when taking overhead and risk factors into account.

Rendeck Different IT propose a completely different pricing model that they believe will shake up the IT market, something that is long overdue.

By keeping our overhead costs as low as possible and by offering both our IT staff and clients complete pricing transparency we believe we can offer a value proposition not seen before in the Dutch marketplace, said Markus. Barnes concurs. In a recent survey carried out by one of the largest ICT service providers in the Netherlands, Different IT was, on average, 43% lower in their price range than other service providers. In the current - and any other, for that matter - economic climate this is a major differentiator and should put us firmly on the map with companies that frequently utilise external IT services and staff. Their cost savings could easily exceed a few hundred thousand Euro's annually.

Rendeck Different IT combines proven stability and a long-standing track record with a truly innovative pricing concept, resulting in an exceptional combination of services for the lowest possible costs. In addition, specialisation in the areas of performance management, infrastructure support and technical support for large, complex computer systems combined with in-depth knowledge and understanding of these environments should make Rendeck Different IT stand out against its competitors as the only low cost, high quality one-stop-shop for all ICT requirements.
