Cirrus Networks are proud to announce its new partnership with Channel7 Telethon beginning this year until 2021. As part of the agreement, Cirrus will provide the IT setup for the vitally important Telethon Call Centre which will be transformed into the Cirrus Call Centre and can receive over 35,000 calls during the Telethon weekend. Cirrus will be responsible for the entire IT setup, including cabling, internet access/WIFI and provision and install of more than 140 laptops for use on the weekend. Cirrus will also have IT support onsite to assist over the Telethon weekend.
As well as the annual Call Centre setup, Cirrus will also provide significant funding to Telethon over the next 5 years under the sponsorship agreement.
Matt Sullivan, CEO of Cirrus Networks said he was delighted with the partnership. “Telethon is a Perth institution and has done amazing work for the kids since it began in 1968. Like most West Australians I remember watching the Telethon weekend on the TV growing up and it’s incredible that Cirrus can now be a part of this worthy cause.”
