Darwin-based IT solutions provider Area9 has won a pair of contracts to supply desktops and laptops to the Northern Territory government.
The company won the contracts with a tender for HP products, worth approximately $4 million for desktops and $3 million for laptops. The three-year contracts include both supply and maintenance for the devices for NT government staff in metro, regional and rural areas.
“We are delighted to have secured this important supply contract with the Northern Territory government," said director Simon Watt.
"Area9 has worked hard to deliver a winning solution, one that validates Area9 as a leading ICT industry product and service provider across the region."
CRN understands the NT government previously weren't using HP devices for staff.
“Area9 has an enviable record of addressing the diverse needs of Territory clients ranging across government and the private sector. It’s also an important win for our partner HP, who have worked with us over many years and reflects both the strength of their product offering and their long term commitment to the Northern Territory,” Watt added.
HP's commercial channel director Chris Hewlett added: "HP is extremely proud to be involved in this major contract Area9 has won with the Northern Territory government. Area9 has been a strong and loyal HP channel partner for many years and wins like this demonstrate the strength of their service offering combined with HP’s innovation and technology.”
Area9's procurement, services centre and service delivery teams based in Darwin will handle supply chain delivery requirements, as well as meeting contractual obligations and co-ordinating support activities.
Area9 has offices in Darwin and Queensland. The company partners with HP, as well as Microsoft, Adobe, Citrix, VMware, Cisco, Lenovo and Apple to provide a range of cloud services, IT, security and hardware solutions.
