Telco AAPT picked up work at homeware specialist HomeArt and clothing manufacturer Canterbury in the three months to September 30, among other wins.
In a statement issued today, the telco said its enterprise division earned some 26 new business wins and over 75 renewed contracts for corporate telecommunications in the period, representing some AU$18 million in annualised revenue.
New wins in the public sector included the NSW Department of Education and Training and the Sutherland Shire Council, with the federal Department of Parliamentary Services (DPS) increasing the value of its existing contract.
DPS has also recently handed a short-term, AU$800,000 contract to AAPT rival Telstra.
"The quarter also saw Bakers' Delight, Kimberley Clark, TMP Worldwide Advertising and Communications and Sanitarium Health Food Company re-sign with AAPT for their in- and outbound voice services," AAPT said in its statement.
The private sector keeps most of its telecommunications deals quiet. However, the public sector is currently a hotbed of telecommunications purchasing activity.
Both New South Wales and Tasmania are currently deciding on telco suppliers for large government contracts. In addition, the federal Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has recently flagged plans to revamp its large international and domestic voice network.
The NSW Department of Commerce is currently looking for suppliers for wide area network services and the Australian Customs Service will this year negotiate an extension to its existing agreement with Telstra.
Australia's intellectual property regulator IP Australia, as well as nuclear agency ANSTO and the Australian Trade Commission are currently shopping for telco services.
