NBN Co awards Geomatic Tech with three-year deal

Spatial technology keeps NBN moving

The essential guide to IT transformation

Spatial technology specialists Geomatic Technologie has secured a multi-million dollar, three year contract with NBN Co.

Under the agreement Geomatic Technologies will deliver a defect and maintenance management solution (DMS) to support NBN Co's construction auditing, maintenance and operations processes.

The solution enables the rapid transfer of audit information between field staff and contractors, streamlining the auditing process with the aim of gaining efficiency.

The Victorian based company claims over 15 years experience in mobile and spatial technology for asset-intensive industries.

"The contract win validates our track record in delivering highly successful enterprise mobility solutions and we look forward to configuring our FMC solution to specifically meet the needs of a project the size and scale of the NBN," said GT Director Mark Judd.

Minister for Technology Gordon Rich-Phillips said "GT will deliver an efficient, reliable and cost-effective solution to meet NBN Co's current and future quality control requirements,” Rich-Phillips said. He added that the Victorian Coalition Government was committed to maximising opportunities for Victorian companies to secure NBN-related work.

"We are continuing to deliver on our election commitment to assist Victorian ICT businesses to take advantage of the opportunities generated by the rollout of the NBN," he said.

Not strictly wedded to Victoria, in November, GT expanded its presence to Perth to service new clients in the resources sector and has recently launched a West Australian based joint venture project with Landgate and US company earthmine Inc.

The JV, called earthmine Australia, provides a solution for the collection, processing and delivery of 3D street level imagery in the Australian and New Zealand market.

Co-founder of earthmine Anthony Fassero said the JV had successfully proven the solution for Australian asset management needs in harsh environments such as the Pilbara. The JV will have the exclusive rights to offer the earthmine solution to the Australian and New Zealand region. ®
