Over thirty departments of The Northern Territory Government are to receive improved satellite services, as a result of a multimillion dollar deal with the Australian satellite provider Pivotel .
The three year contract with The Northern Territory Government is a significant win for Pivotel, which has a call handling capability which provides standard mobile numbers and local dialling, simplifying communications and lowering call costs between satellite phones and other telephone systems.
Working with efficient and reliable satellite devices is critically important to The Northern Territory Government, particularly in remote areas far from cellular coverage and was a major reason for it choosing Pivotel Iridium handsets and car kits to service its varying satellite needs for departments across the territory.
Peter Bolger, Managing Director of Pivotel said that the company’s success with government organisations is because of its reliability and also its ongoing commitment to providing quality satellite devices.
“We have invested in resources, training and capital so that we can provide the very best possible support and services to our customers,” he explained. “Being a telecommunications provider with our own infrastructure gives us the ability to deliver superior customer solutions which raise the benchmark and are the envy of our competitors.”
Pivotel will be providing The Northern Territory Government with a specialised team that has over 20 years of experience in the satellite communications industry to deliver around the clock external support. In addition, Pivotel has also teamed up with Darwin based communications partner, Combined Communications and Alice Springs based partner Comspec NT Pty Ltd to ensure there is strong locally based support.
This satellite technology is available throughout Australia.
