Kinetic IT, Australia’s leading ICT managed services provider, has been awarded a five-year contract with Water Corporation to provide support services to its front and back-end IT infrastructure.
Water Corporation is the principal supplier of water, wastewater and drainage services in Western Australia. It delivers services, projects and activities to hundreds of thousands of homes, businesses and farms, over an area spanning 2.5 million square kilometres.
“We’re thrilled that Water Corporation has chosen Kinetic IT off the back of a highly competitive selection process, ahead of predominantly global players. This decision demonstrates the high calibre of professional IT services and talent we have locally available,” says Kinetic IT CEO Terry North.
The contract will see Kinetic IT deliver all front-end infrastructure services (including the support of end user devices like PCs), as well as back-end infrastructure (including network management and data centre equipment and services) to Water Corporation from June 2013.
This latest partnership tops off a highly successful twelve-month period for Kinetic IT, with the Australian-owned company winning contracts with a well-known global resources giant, St John Ambulance Australia, Western Australia Department of Health, INPEX and Carlton United Breweries.
“At Kinetic IT, we recognise the importance our customers see in keeping major technology contracts delivered from within Australia – it not only assists the job market, but ensures customers are given tailored services with an understanding of their sector and position within this country,” adds North.
“Our growth rate has remained steady at around 35-40% year on year, and we don’t see that changing into the foreseeable future. We already have offices in all major Australian capital cities and will employ more than 1000 staff once Water Corporation is fully transitioned,” North comments.
Kinetic IT delivers services to over 2,500 client sites nationally and prides itself on its longstanding relationships with many of its customers across both government and corporate sectors.
“As a business, we’ve lived by the same values and principles since 1995 and are proud to deliver tangible benefits and alignment to each individual customer,” concludes North.
