The company "Zastava" from Kragujevac realized this fact at the very beginning of its development and has improved business in the direction of continuous progress in the field of information technology. Following the progress of IT sector, "Zastava", we can practically follow the development of information technology. The IT development in “Zastava” has started in early 1960 by establishing the Office for the organization and systematization. The first IT organizational unit in the factory "Zastava" was Electromechanical department. The first computer for automatic data processing ever installed in an industrial company in Yugoslavia, was in that department.

The Memorandum of strategic cooperation between FIAT and “Zastava” has been signed on May 2008. According to estimates of leaders in the Zastava’s IT sector, the main direction of development will continue, and they expect further investment in the IT. They also expect that FIAT will probably apply the model they already used in the similar arrangements - a separation of IT department and forming a new company whose services will be used by the factory (outsourcing model).
