WILSON HTM SIGN $16M IT DEAL

IT and communications provider IntraPower Limited (IPX) today signed a $16 million contract with Wilson HTM Investment Group.

The five-year deal will see the company provide Wilson HTM’s complete IT infrastructure using its cloud computing platform Business On-Demand.

IntraPower managing direct Greg Kennish, says the deal is a ‘significant win’.

“IntraPower is very pleased to announce this agreement with Wilson HTM. They are a highly respected financial services firm, operating nationally,” he says.

“One of the key reasons that Wilson HTM selected IntraPower was that, as a single source provider, we take full responsibility for the end-to-end solution, from the Data Centre to the Desktop.

“Staff will securely access a virtual desktop, which includes fully functional Windows, Microsoft Office, and industry-specific applications, from anywhere, anytime.”

Prior to signing the agreement, Wilson HTM commissioned information communications research advisory company Longhaus to research the IntraPower system – with favourable results.

Wilson HTM CEO David Groth says the agreement would improve IT operations without the need for costly capital expenditure on an IT infrastructure upgrade.

“With the IntraPower Business On-Demand solution we will have access to an environment that we would not have been able to cost effectively create in-house.

Under the terms of the agreement, Wilson HTM will be provided with IT services on a per-user-per-month basis providing us with a fixed and predictable cost. Our IT will be less complex and more responsive to the growth and innovation initiatives of the business.”

Business On-Demand will be used by more than 400 Wilson HTM employees in 15 locations across the country

Despite losing a third of its share price since 2007, Wilson HTM executive chairman Steve Wilson, told Brisbane Business News this month the company is on track to take advantage of US recovery and Asian demand for resources and consumer goods.
