Gen-i wins big with Fletcher contract

06 May 2011

Gen-i announced details of its Fletcher Building contract win, saying it believes the deal is New Zealand's largest mobile contract.

The deal will see Gen-i provide over 5500 mobile, voice and data connections and, starting immediately, move all Vodafone accounts to Telecom's XT network.

Fletcher is heavily involved in re-building Christchurch, so the contract will provide critical access to communications for the company.

Fletcher Building CIO, Paul Knight, says that equipping its people with the best technology but controlling costs are key objectives, particularly as it ramps up its business to manage and assist the rebuilding programme in Christchurch.

The win supplements Gen-i's existing contract with Fletcher, as well as its five-year contract with recent Fletcher acquisition Crane.
