Cincom and Connell Wagner Union Brings Benefits for Defence

(Sydney, Australia) – Cincom Australia, a leading provider of business software and Connell Wagner, an Australian-owned engineering and management consultancy firm, have formed a partnership to provide superior services and support for the Australian defence industry and other government organisations.

As part of the agreement, Cincom will provide software engineering services, and Connell Wagner project management and business services capabilities to defence companies.

By combining this array of specialist services, Cincom and Connell Wagner will help defence organisations address significant technical skills gaps as Defence Major Capital Procurement gains momentum under the Defence Capability Plan.

This will position both companies for providing a complete engineering technology solution for defence companies, with advantages for both their business and information needs.

Both Cincom and Connell Wagner have extensive experience and proven results in the defence industry. By forming an alliance, this will bring many additional benefits to customers including:

*Extensive experience and skills of staff – most have tertiary engineering and/or management qualifications;

*A more comprehensive solution for defence companies which will better meet their requirements;

*A greater range of service offerings; and

*A single point of contact for services.

Paul Hargreaves, Managing Director of Cincom Australia and New Zealand, said Cincom is dedicated to the Defence and Aerospace segment as is Connell Wagner so there is a good cultural fit between the two companies.

“The objective of this partnership is to be the most successful provider of engineering and technology-based solutions for Australian defence companies,” said Hargreaves.

“By working together, we can provide high quality services and support for defence organisations resulting in substantial cost savings and increased return on investment.”

“It is important for major services providers like Connell Wagner and Cincom to have the flexibility and commercial relations to work together and provide the highest quality outcomes for Defence. This is unique in the Australian defence market”, said Owen Martin, Director and Defence Leader for Connell Wagner.

“Both companies are leaders in technological development and have active internal mechanisms that support, develop and promote emerging technologies.”
