Qld TAFE extends Unisys outsourcing deal

Queensland TAFE has extended an existing three-year contract with Unisys for a further two years of desktop support and managed services.

Unisys will be responsible for IT services for the 15 TAFE Institutes and 85 Campuses throughout the state, handling up to 8,000 calls per month, desktop support for 12,000 computers, management of some 240 servers as well as network support, asset management, project services and programme management.

Unisys Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Mike Ettling said the contract extension is similar to the deal Unisys currently has with the New South Wales Department of Education.

"TAFE Institutes are in the business of providing cost-effective, vocational education and training across the state, which our IT infrastructure outsourcing services and specialist solutions enable them to do," Ettling said.

The contract involves using Queensland sub-contractors and a number of smaller state-based IT providers.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
