“We’re pleased to bring our cutting-edge technology and wealth of Games expertise and experience to help make the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games a great success.”

Atos, a Worldwide Paralympic Partner of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), has announced it is joining the Toronto 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games as its newest Premier Partner.

The company, with Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario, will provide Games systems integration services, as well as timing, scoring and results solutions and services for the Games at more than 30 competition venues in 15 different municipalities.

That means when sprinters cross the finish line in world-record time or the time clock ticks down the remaining seconds in a deadlocked match at the Games, the split-second technology determining the winners will be from Atos . And so will be the business technologists working with the Organising Committee to build and operate the mission-critical timing, scoring and results systems required to stage the Games.

In addition to timing, scoring and results, Atos will also provide Games systems integration services, including resources to manage and build systems at the equipment deployment centre, a centralised Games-time helpdesk and provide staff critical to the successful planning, deployment and operation of the venues.

“Atos is a global end-to-end IT services company and a longtime Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner,” explained Patrick Adiba, CEO Olympic Games and Major Events, Atos.

“We’re pleased to bring our cutting-edge technology and wealth of Games expertise and experience to help make the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games a great success.”

Since 2001, Atos has served as the Worldwide Information Technology Partner and a TOP sponsor of the Olympic Games, including the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.

In this capacity, Atos is responsible for leading the consortium of IT partners to design, build and operate the massive IT infrastructure and solutions that support the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Congratulations to both Atos and TO2015 for this partnership, which will bring state-of-the-art technology services to these important Games,” said Bal Gosal, Minister of State (Sport).

“Our Government is pleased to see Atos supporting the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, as the private sector has an important role to play in Canadian sport. Becoming a Premier Partner represents corporate Canada’s strength, commitment and belief in these Games.”

Atos joins previously announced members of the Toronto 2015 sponsor family, including: Lead Partner CIBC; Premier Partners Chevrolet Canada, CISCO and Loblaw Companies Limited; Opening Ceremony Creative Partner Cirque du Soleil; as well as Official Suppliers Allstream, Beanfield Metroconnect, CAA South Central Ontario, Coca-Cola, Pattison Outdoor Advertising, FUSE Marketing Group, McKesson Canada, Royal Canadian Mint, Schenker of Canada Ltd., Toronto Pearson International Airport, the Toronto Star, and Official Broadcaster CBC/Radio-Canada.
