IBM Fuels Benzina With New Information System


PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC - 08 Oct 2008: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced it was selected to deliver a state-of-the-art information system for Benzina and Benzina Plus petrol station network. The delivery and implementation will be managed by IBM Global Business Services and its consultants will be responsible for project management to fulfill all customer requirements.

We are confident the new Retail Information System will provide the best service experience and availability to all drivers," said Ing. Martin Durčák, Chief Executive Officer of Benzina.
