Expecting to pick up $5 million worth of business over two years, Optima has signed up a supply contract with the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority.
The Optima contract is for the supply of hardware and services – mainly 1,400 notebooks and 4,600 desktop computers. The contract is part of the Authority’s ongoing system refresh.
The units selected for supply will be customised during manufacturing to meet the specific requirements of each individual RTA user. The desktop (WorkPro D9S Series) and notebook (Centoris G300 Series) computers will be pre-loaded with the standard operating environment and further customised with a user-specified set of applications, chosen from an extensive range of over 350 RTA corporate applications. All systems will be installed by Optima’s statewide service and support network.
Optima secured the contract over numerous other vendors including large multinationals, further strengthening the company’s position in the competitive government sector.
“This contract demonstrates that there is most definitely a place for local vendors in the Australian government market,” said Cornel Ung, Managing Director and Executive Chairman, Optima. “Being locally based we are able to build and deliver a range of competitive, fully customised products on demand, and then back these products with a nationwide service and support network that multinational vendors are unable to rival.”
“We delivered over 40,000 systems to the government sector in the last financial year and, with deals like this, we expect to maintain steady growth within this market throughout 2006.”
