Through the agreement, IBM will continue to provide Lam Research with Accounts Payable, Cash Receipt Applications, Systems Invoicing, Payroll Administration, General Accounting and Account Reconciliation services. Key to IBM being selected for this deal was its successful history with Lam Research in delivering quality services at a competitive price.
