Cirrus Networks has signed a significant three-year managed service contract with newly formed Perth based not-for-profit care provider, Chorus.
As the preferred respondent to public tender, the deal will see Cirrus deliver an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution with a primary focus on ensuring a cost effective approach to IT budget management that allows for flexibility to cut costs whilst merging the three entities which have become Chorus – Care Options, Volunteer Task Force and Community First International.
Key elements of the project include removal of duplication, elimination of unnecessary spend and asset consolidation, including, utilising current in place applications and services for minimal redesign and leveraging existing Cirrus cloud infrastructure technology and ITSM framework to create a suitable new environment for the new Chorus combined business.
Speaking about the project Matt Sullivan, Cirrus Chief Executive Officer said “We have been working with Community First International for the last three years and we are thrilled to be chosen to join Chorus with them. Delivery of the new core Chorus platforms and merging legacy infrastructure are short term goals, the Cirrus/Chorus partnership will be to deliver cost effective, innovative solutions that enable the Chorus business for many years to come”.
Chorus is the result of a three-way merger between Volunteer Task Force, Care Options and Community First, who together have a combined 100-year history of supporting WA. As the new face of community services in WA, Chorus provides aged care, disability, mental health and support services. Chorus is a fresh approach to community service and enables people to live the life they choose.
CEO of Chorus, Dan Minchin said: “We at Chorus are looking forward to partnering with a fellow Western Australian based organisation as we take a fresh approach to community service. Cirrus ticked all the boxes during our highly competitive selection process.”
