Australian-listed telecommunications and digital content provider Swift Networks (ASX:SW1) has won a $1.5 million deal through its partnership with DXC Technology.
Swift Networks' entertainment and crew welfare solutions will be deployed to personnel sites of the oil and gas industry.
In October 2017, Swift Networks announced a deal with DXC's Connect, which would offer Swift's full suite of services. The agreement saw Swift become Connect’s preferred vendor for the provision of digital entertainment systems, content and services to complement Connect’s system integration solutions.
The five-year deal will also count on ongoing monthly service and support fees from between 2,500 and 4,600 rooms each year.
Swift will provide entertainment services, infrastructure refresh, messaging and alerts, health, welfare and training material, free to air television and pay TV integration in addition to 24x7 support over the term.
Swift told shareholders on 9 May that the deal not only represents new locations for Swift but includes a 60-month renewal of certain services provided to two sites where the contract term was coming to an end. Swift has recontracted these rooms under DXC Technology.
“We are pleased to provide this update on our partnership with DXC which was only announced late last year and are delighted that the first deal with DXC is such a landmark win," Swift chief executive officer Xavier Kris said.
"Our reseller relationships, which also include Telstra, AST and Tripleplay, are producing pleasing results demonstrating that our strategy is being delivered as planned and we look forward to continued growth in conjunction with our partners."
