Australia and New Zealand Bank (ANZ) has selected national PTT Telstra as its preferred supplier of telecommunications technologies as well as potential future managed services over the next three years.
ANZ head of technology, e-commerce and payments, David Boyles says Telstra has already contributed to the Web-enablement of ANZ’s branch network and expects the formal agreement to deliver immediate cost savings.
“Telstra is providing the core telecommunications infrastructure for ANZ’s banking platform of the future which will use Web-based technology," he says. “We have successfully rolled out our new IP, high bandwidth network to over 800 locations around Australia in the last 4 months."
Telstra Retail, chief of business sales, Mike Foster says the scope of the agreement extends beyond the supply of services to include strategic assistance on the roll out and development of future e-commerce initiatives by ANZ.
