Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips today congratulated Victorian company Geomatic Technologies (GT) on securing a contract with NBN Co to deliver a vital defect-management solution as part of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
The multi-million dollar three-year contract will see Geomatic Technologies, a leading Australian advanced mobile and spatial technology provider, deliver a defect and maintenance management solution (DMS) to support NBN Co’s construction auditing, maintenance and operations processes.
Mr. Rich-Phillips said this was a great win for Geomatic Technologies and for Victoria.
“GT will deliver an efficient, reliable and cost-effective solution to meet NBN Co’s current and future quality control requirements.” Mr. Rich-Phillips said.
“The solution will enable the rapid transfer of audit information between field staff and contractors, streamlining the auditing process and realising efficiency gains.”
Mr. Rich-Phillips said the Victorian Coalition Government was committed to maximising opportunities for Victorian companies to secure NBN-related work.
“We are continuing to deliver on our election commitment to assist Victorian ICT businesses to take advantage of the opportunities generated by the rollout of the NBN.” Mr. Rich-Phillips said.
With more than 15 years experience, GT is a leader in mobile and spatial technology for asset-intensive industries.
Mr. Rich-Phillips said it was great to see an innovative Victorian company play a key role in deploying critical defect-management software for Australia’s biggest infrastructure project.
“This latest contract follows other Victorian companies and global companies with a Victorian presence securing contracts for the construction phase of the NBN.” Mr. Rich-Phillips said.
“Telecommunications product developer and manufacturer Warren & Brown Technologies, optical fibre and hardware manufacturer Corning Cable Systems Australia and software developer SPATIALinfo have all been successful in securing highly coveted contracts for the NBN.”
“The Coalition Government is taking a leading role in developing Victoria’s digital economy.” Mr. Rich-Phillips said.
GT Director Mark Judd said GT was excited to be selected by NBN Co. to deliver market leading mobile and special technology.
“It validates our track record in delivering highly successful enterprise mobility solutions and we look forward to configuring our FMC solution to specifically meet the needs of a project the size and scale of the NBN.” Mr. Judd said.
