Goodman Fielder Selects TCNZA For Its Australian Communications

TCNZ Australia (TCNZA) has been selected as telecommunications partner to Australasian food group Goodman Fielder. As part of the two-year contract, TCNZA will provide Goodman Fielder with all its voice, mobile, Internet and remote access services (RAS).

The contract builds upon Goodman Fielder’s managed services partnership with Telecom in New Zealand, providing it with a single supplier across the Tasman.

“I’m delighted with this result, which confirms TCNZA’s status as a real force in Australia’s top 100 market,” said Gary Perkins, TCNZA’s new Group General Manager.

“In just over two years of operation, TCNZA has quickly become recognised as a key rival to major players in the high end segment of the corporate market. The contract with Goodman Fielder builds on TCNZA’s steadily growing portfolio of customers, which includes The Commonwealth Bank Group, Toll Holdings, Woolworths and Lion Nathan.”

Goodman Fielder’s Chief Financial Officer Mr Grant Logan said, “It was a strong competitive field and difficult decision, with TCNZA being awarded the contract because it offered Goodman Fielder the capability to meet our telecommunications needs across the Tasman,” said Mr Logan.

Gary Perkins said TCNZA’s unique business model for the Australian market is paying off.

“By not being tied to any one vendor, TCNZA has the ability to combine the best services and technologies available on the market to develop the ideal telecommunications solution to meet our customers’ needs,” said Mr Perkins.

“When you add responsiveness and flexibility to that mix, you have a winning formula.”
