A public sector contract worth £30m over seven years has been secured by Commsworld, its biggest ever deal to date. Commsworld posted £13.2m revenues in its last financial year and expects to see 17% growth this year pre-winning the Glasgow City Council contract to provide a pure fibre WAN connecting all council sites.
The Edinburgh-based comms provider will also rollout an IP telephony solution for more than 16,000 council users and a 180 seat contact centre.
Commsworld CEO Ricky Nicol (pictured) said: "This contract has effectively given the green light for Glasgow to become a truly digital city capable of attracting the most exciting businesses in the world.
"It's vital that our Scottish cities and their people are at the cutting edge of technology - so it is fantastic that so many will now benefit thanks to this council's ambition and foresight."
Glasgow City Council's Digital Champion Angus Millar added: "Glasgow's rapid development as a digital, connected city gives us the chance to completely rethink how we use technology to improve lives and communities.
"From world-class digital learning in our schools to better connected businesses, access to top-quality infrastructure will transform Glasgow into one of the best connected cities anywhere in Europe."
