MyNetFone, Australia’s largest provider of hosted voice and data communications services, today announced it has been appointed to the Voice Services Panel for the Victorian Government as part of the Government’s Telecommunications Purchasing and Management Strategy 2025 (TPAMS2025). Appointment to TPAMS2025 represents a substantial opportunity for MyNetFone. In 2013 the total fixed voice expenditure by Victorian Government was in the order of $30m per annum. MyNetFone has been selected as one of only 3 providers to the fixed voice panel.
From February 2017, Victorian Government Departments and Agencies will be able to access innovative, cost effective voice services on MyNetFone’s smart new-generation Australian voice network. This represents the first time that Victorian Government entities have had the opportunity to choose a supplier that specialises in new-generation IP telephony through highly reliable and scalable SIP infrastructure.
“MyNetFone has significant experience meeting the voice services needs of government agencies.” said Rene Sugo, CEO of MyNetFone parent MNF Group. “I welcome this appointment and look forward to working with Victorian Government entities to optimise their voice services and achieve savings for the Victorian people.” The appointment is a result of the company’s long term strategy to address the Enterprise and Government segments in the Australian domestic market. It builds on the success of projects in Tasmania and New South Wales.
All Victorian Government Budget Sector Agencies must purchase their voice services from panel suppliers. Additionally, other government entities can also choose to purchase from the TPAMS panel providers. Budget Sector Agencies include all 7 central government departments including the Department of Education, Health and Environment, Land water and Planning and a further 22 government entities including Vic Roads, the Victorian Electoral Commission, and the Essential Services Commission.
