Optima selected as RTA supplier

  • 30 January, 2006 10:31

<p>Optima Technology Solutions (ASX:OPI), the leading Australian computer manufacturer, has been selected to supply hardware and services to the New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA).</p>
<p>In a deal potentially worth $5 million over the next two years, Optima has been contracted to supply the RTA with 1,400 notebooks and 4,600 desktop computers as part of the Authority’s ongoing system refresh. The PCs will be backed by Optima's comprehensive installation, deinstallation and support services, which will be delivered in line with Optima’s superior service level agreement.</p>
<p>Optima secured the contract over numerous other vendors including large multinationals, further strengthening the company’s position in the competitive government sector.</p>
<p>“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.”</p>
<p>The units selected for supply will be highly customised during the manufacturing process 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.</p>
<p>“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.”</p>
<p>About Optima Technology Solutions</p>
<p>Founded in 1989, Optima has grown to become the largest Australian manufacturer of notebooks, desktop personal computers and servers. Headquartered in Sydney, with branch offices in Melbourne and Brisbane, Optima is ideally placed by size and strength to promptly supply and actively support customers through a nationwide supply and service network.</p>
