in brief Optus ICT services subsidiary Alphawest has signed up global IT services company Unisys to provide hardware and software infrastructure installation and support services to some of its clients.

Unisys announced today that it will be called to step up and provide both on-site and remote services and support to Alphawest customers across the country under a private label services agreement. Alphawest acting CEO Ian Smith said the growing company needed a services partner to "support the increasing complexity of our customers' ICT infrastructure".

"We selected Unisys as they complement our skill-set and have adopted industry-leading standards to ensure our clients receive the consistently high level of support and service they have come to expect from Alphawest," he said in a statement.

Unisys also has an agreement with EMC which sees it provide similar services under a private label arrangement.
