3D Networks has scored a contract to supply a new Nortel/Microsoft unified communications solution to property group, Mirvac. The deal is estimated to be worth more than $100,000.
"Mirvac was looking to increase its user productivity and wanted more functionality that linked their telephony environment with their data and desktop, as well as allow people to be able to interact in a much more convenient manner using their PC," 3D Networks CEO, Chris Luxford, said.
"The solution from Microsoft and Nortel was able to deal with it and we will be the first in the market to sell one of these new Innovative Communications Alliance (ICA) solutions."
Luxford said 3D would also be providing installation, integration and ongoing support services.
"One of the reasons they selected us was based on being able to migrate their existing platform to their new building and provide all of this new functionality. I think that was something that made us stand above the rest," he said.
3D had been dealing with Mirvac for nine months. The company's decision to move into new premises presented a good opportunity to meet their requirements, Luxford said. Other contenders for the latest deal included Commander and Cisco.
"Their relocation is absolutely critical and we spent a lot of time with them about making sure that their transition was as painless as possible, which was crucial," Luxford said.
The implementation is expected to be completed by June.
