Australian software developer and services company FulfilNET has scored a $2 million contract with Telecom Directories Limited (TDL) to provide Web site creation software, Web authoring tools and managed hosting services over the next three years.
FulfilNET outshone 40 local and international contenders to win the contract with TDL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telecom Corporation of New Zealand.
FulfilNET, which specialises in Web site management for major telecommunications carriers, will supply TDL with its 4SiteCreation software platform, a role-based content management system that allows businesses to allocate read/write access to various areas of their organisation.
"It was the role-based capability of the software that differentiated us the most. It allows businesses to provide their various users with different levels of access to their Web sites," said David Mayman, FulfilNET's managing director.
Publisher of the New Zealand White Pages and Yellow Pages, TDL will offer its customers Web site solutions, allowing them to create simple one-page, do-it-yourself maintenance Web sites to 100-page, heavily role-based Web sites.
FulfilNET's 4SiteCreation solution replaces TDL's former template-based system, providing TDL's customers with more flexibility.
The platform and administration system enables TDL to migrate, on a mass basis, hosting customers from other platforms. This migration and conversion process is usually automated, which reduces time and costs.
