Spark Digital wins NZ mobility provider contract

“It was vital that our mobility provider understood the needs of our business and was able to marry our requirements to a solution that also aligned with the overall business strategy."

Global professional services employer EY has selected Spark Digital as its partner for all New Zealand telecommunications services.

Following a robust tender process, EY awarded the contract to Spark Digital and now plans to equip their staff with a new fleet of smartphones, and personal Wi-Fi hotspots.

Project teams will utilise the technology from client’s premises, in order to ensure consistent high speed internet connectivity, irrespective of their location.

EY Managing Partner Simon O’Connor says that the change to Spark Digital reflects the company’s focus on digital technology.

“It was vital that our mobility provider understood the needs of our business and was able to marry our requirements to a solution that also aligned with the overall business strategy,” O’Connor says.

“Spark Digital encouraged us to transform our use and management of mobility solutions.

"This will enhance productivity for our staff, as they will be connected and available to our customers via a multitude of channels wherever they are working from.”

The contract includes over 700 mobile voice and data connections, and supplements an existing contract with Spark Digital for the provision of fixed telecommunication services, and WAN.

Signed last month, the service will be rolled out within 2014.

Spark Digital’s General Manager of Corporate Clients, Simon Gillespie, says EY chose Spark Digital on the strength of the company’s reputation for providing mobile solutions, its flat rate roaming package, and pricing flexibility.

“Over 1000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the country provide EY with approximately 22TB of free mobile data every month outside their usual plans," he adds.

"The new agreement is a strong endorsement of EY’s trust in Spark Digital to ensure they continually evolve and are well equipped with cutting edge digital technology.”
