 “Our strategic relationship with ANZ continues to go from strength-to-strength and we are delighted with this significant contract milestone,” comments John Paitaridis, Optus Business managing director.

“We are highly committed to continuing our innovative approach to supporting ANZ’s critical ICT requirements and business operations in Australia and across Asia,” he says.

“Optus Business is focused on delivering leading ICT managed services to Australian enterprises and government organisations, and this multi-year contract extension with ANZ is testament to our capability, innovation and demonstrated track record.,” says Paitaridis.

The agreement includes domestic and international data network services, mobility, collaboration, contact centre services and managed services to support ANZ’s operations.

Shayne Elliott, ANZ chief executive officer, say Singtel is playing an important role in the partnership.

“The services provided by Singtel have played an important role as we use technology to make it easier for our customers to do their banking with us and provide innovative ways for our staff to collaborate,” he explains.

Chua Sock Koong, Singtel Group chief executive officer adds, “We are very pleased with the ANZ contract renewal and look forward to continuing to leverage the Singtel Group’s scale, expertise and innovation to support ANZ’s business objectives in years to come.”
