[Sydney, AUSTRALIA] Sausage Software has formed a global alliance with Unisys to develop and deliver leading e-business solutions to clients worldwide.
Announcing the alliance today, the Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Senator Richard Alston, said the alliance signaled a strengthening of e-solution practices and technology that would bring enormous benefits to Australia.
Sausage chief executive officer Lloyd Roberts said the development was part of the company’s strategy to align Sausage with global players, while consolidating services to increased profitability and grow shareholder value.
“This partnership springboards Sausage into the global market, enabling us to tap into the US $7.5 billion Unisys market by developing a strategic partnership with a major global company that complements and adds value to our business as well as becoming an important service provider to our client base,” he said.
“The alliance will significantly increase market share value and opportunities for both companies through exploitation and maximization of synergystic benefits, and we expect our market share to more than double,” Roberts said.
In return, Unisys managing director Ron Frankenfield said by combining services with Sausage, Unisys was now able to offer clients worldwide creative content deliver at competitive prices.
“Australia will also reap the benefits of substantial industry growth through the export of this unique intellectual property and capability,” Frankenfield concluded.
Sausage said the company’s intention was to target four specific markets – Australian SMEs and globally, transport and aviation, education and interactive development.
“This alliance will provide SMEs with the opportunity to move their businesses online at affordable costs and technically low risk,” continued Roberts. “By taking advantage of the e-business benefits this alliance provides, small businesses can concentrate on their core activities and maximize capabilities to compete with major corporates previously unavailable because of costly infrastructure and non-core expertise,” he said.
