Objective cements $10M Defence deal

Formally announcing its ongoing agreement with the Australian Defence organisation, Objective has revealed that it will represent a minimum value of $A10m over the next five years.

Defence originally selected Objective in 2000 as its mandated Electronic Document and Records Management solution.

Since then, Objective and Defence have successfully worked together to deliver long-term benefits for the Navy, Army, Air Force, research, administration and logistics groups across Australia.

Tony Walls, CEO, Objective Corporation said: “This contract evidences our successful history with Defence. It also illustrates the value that our customers receive from Objective’s investment and commitment to research and development.”

Objective is working closely with Defence to upgrade its current software to Objective 7.5, initially for 25,000 users within Australia. The upgrade project is scheduled for completion this year with a roll-out to up to 60,000 users expected to occur over the following two-year period, although this is still being investigated by Defence.
