Melbourne-based integrator, Open Windows Software, has signed multi-million dollar contracts to implement enterprise software solutions for the Northern Territory (NT) government and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) government.
The NT government recently tendered for the supply of an enterprise contract management system in order to centralise and automate their contract management, standardise processes, improve business intelligence, and reduce supply side risk profiles.
Open Windows said it was selected for its ability to provide an “all of government solution for NT, enable a consistent approach to contract management activities and provide further support to the overall procurement lifecycle by interfacing with key existing systems.”
The successful $3 million ACT tender is for development and implementation of a capital works management system.
The objective is to provide a single touchpoint for all information on construction projects and improve efficiency through a single system for all contract, financial, and project functionality.
Open Windows CEO, Adam McInnes, said that the recent deals demonstrate the flexibility of the company’s contract management solution to help procurement and commercial management teams use a single solution to manage and develop capital works programs, tendering, and contract management.
"This is recognition of the strength of Open Windows contract management solution in the Australian government market," Chairman of Open Windows and former Victorian Premier, Jeff Kennett, added.
"The product is built and supported by an Australian organisation for Australian businesses.
"These recent sales demonstrate the significance and value of this against strong international competition."
The implementation of Open Windows Software has recently commenced in both ACT and NT.
Alongside its Victorian presence, Open Windows has staff based in Sydney, Canberra, Perth, Brisbane and Hobart.
The company has more than 55 local government and “whole-of-government” arrangements within QLD, WA, and SA state governments.
