Optus Business today announced a new expanded telecommunications and managed-services agreement with EnergyAustralia, one of Australia’s leading energy retailers.
Under the new five-year agreement, Optus Business will support the expansion of security, data centre, contact centre and mobile management services while continuing to provide EnergyAustralia with a range of voice, data and expanded managed services.
EnergyAustralia meets the energy needs of more than 2.6 million customer accounts across eastern Australia and owns and operates a multi-billion dollar energy portfolio, including coal, gas and wind generation assets.
John Paitaridis, Managing Director, Optus Business, said: “We’re approaching our new and expanded relationship as an opportunity to provide ICT capabilities to support EnergyAustralia’s business and transformation objectives, particularly delivery of its customer-focussed strategy.”
Anne Weatherston, EnergyAustralia Chief Information Officer, said: “Optus Business is a strategic partner for EnergyAustralia as we work toward consolidating our IT platforms. Our new multi-year agreement is an important relationship and we’re excited to grow our partnership.”
The new services selected by EnergyAustralia will be live in the first half of 2017, with Optus Business continuing to work on a number of initiatives supporting the energy provider’s transformation.
