With the ink barely dry, KAZ Computer Services is reaping the rewards of its recent acquisition of software services firm Aspect Computing. In an announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange last week, the software arm stated it had signed long-term contracts in excess of $20 million.
Among the mix is a significant contract with the NSW Attorney-General's Office for the integration, training and maintenance of an electronic case administration system, the first phase of which is to be completed in early 2003.
KAZ has also secured a large chunk of a $29 million contract awarded by the Australian Customs Service for an integrated cargo system.
KAZ's managing director, Peter Kazacos, said the contracts demonstrate Aspect's ability to win significant government business through the addition of hardware services and validates the claim that extra opportunities will emerge from the joining of Aspect and KAZ.
