UXC Limited has signed a three-year $12 million plus, annuity cloud-based contract with Ixom, a market leader in water treatment and chemical distribution. Ixom, which was formerly a part of Orica, is a new customer for UXC.
Additionally, UXC will undertake the significant task of assisting Ixom to transition and migrate from the current Orica hosted IT environment and then will provide application managed services and an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform to support the business. As part of the agreement, UXC will deliver the managed service desk, security, server management and desktop support as well as moving Ixom’s current SAP platform to a Microsoft Azure cloud-based platform, and will provide application support.
Cris Nicolli, UXC’s Managing Director, welcomed the signing of the contract and said that it would deliver for Ixom a reliable cloud-based solution for mail, collaboration and business productivity that leverages best practice and can be used anywhere, anytime, on any device.
“We are delighted that Ixom has selected UXC after an extensive tender process as its preferred partner based on our depth of capability, our innovation and agility,” Mr Nicolli said.
“This project will deliver many new IT capabilities that Ixom has not had before including access to the latest IT tools and applications, which lets them run their business through the cloud, including Office 365. This will allow greater access to data anywhere, at any time as well as increasing enterprise mobility. A real success for Ixom will be a transition away from Orica’s support, with zero impact on their business and improved IT capabilities for their users in the future.
This is a great example of how UXC’s depth of capability and expertise delivers a unique end-to-end integrated technology solution, which meets Ixom’s IT requirements.
The award of a contract of this significance confirms that UXC is consistently viewed as a trusted and client centric organisation that can be relied on to support complex and transformational projects.
This Ixom win adds to the growing list of annuity based services contracts recently won by UXC that provide future revenue predictability and a strong opportunity within each customer to build ongoing project revenue streams,” Mr Nicolli said.
A summary of this contract award was referred to in UXC’s market announcement of 28 July 2015.
