Sodexo is undergoing an exciting technology transformation that has created growth and career opportunities within our IT organization.

The objective of our transformation is to connect people, processes and technology to drive growth for the entire company. The focus is to improve enterprise productivity by reducing complexity for our unit managers.

As the Executive Recruiter with Sodexo for IT, I am often amazed at the power of technology, the solutions it offers, and how our global applications simplify our processes.

Tools such as Maximo CMMS, which stands for Computerized Maintenance Management System, will offer our Facilities Managers the ability to track assets, maintain consistent reports, minimize risk and ultimately reduce start-up failures, deviations and reputation loss. Through this state-of-the-art technology, our systems are rolled into one tool for finance, purchasing and reporting, making it easier for our Facilities Managers to succeed with our clients!

As an IT professional working for Sodexo, you become the conduit to our operations and technology. Roopesh Ranganathan, Director of the Maximo Competency Center, explains, "There is never a dull moment here. I so often come into contact with business partners who amaze me with the amount of functional knowledge and great attitude they bring to the table. My role allows me the ‘entrepreneurship' environment I need to manage challenges in my line of sight, while guaranteeing the right support when needed."

In addition to Maximo, our IT organization is currently developing and deploying national and global instances of enterprise technology such as SAP, ADP, Ariba and Oracle Business Intelligence, as well as internally developed software utilizing the .NET framework. This creates exceptional career opportunities for IT professionals to benefit from a wealth of resources and training, while influencing business outcomes and making a significant impact on Sodexo's success.
