Getronics hopes to boost revenues with new program

Getronics hopes to generate an extra $30 million in revenues next year, following the launch of Wang Global's services suite, NetWorkPlace.

Local annual revenues figures for Getronics, which acquired Wang Global in July this year, are around $140 million, Robin Dixon, managing director, Getronics Australia said.

Aimed at helping companies lower total cost of ownership (TCO) figures, the NetWorkPlace provides 18 different services based around planning, deploying, managing and maintaining IT infrastructure, Dixon, said.

A key aspect of the portfolio is the move towards creating common operating environments and common support environments, which will lead to a managed total cost of ownership, Dixon said.

Despite pushing the need for a common operating environment and products, including Microsoft Windows 2000 and Office 2000, Dixon said Getronics would maintain its vendor independence and if necessary will procure and purchase products for customers.

"We are not a manufacturer of products with a services arm," he said.

Dixon said with the introduction of NetWorkPlace, Getronics has restructured to focus on two separate lines of business, Business Solutions and Consulting and Systems Integration and Networked Technology Services.

NetWorkPlace was originally a Wang Global initiative, but its release was delayed because of the acquisition early this year.
