IT company wins $3.6m contract with Royal Mint

The Royal Australian Mint in Canberra has signed Cincom Systems of Australia to upgrade its IT Business System as part of a $3.6 million ‘modernisation program’ which includes a material handling system.

The contract, which is scheduled for completion in late 2009, coincides with the Mint’s refurbishment and is part of the Mint’s plan to become “one of the best manufacturing facilities in the world”, according to a spokesperson for the Mint.

According to the Mint chief executive officer, Janine Murphy, Cincom won the upgrade contract because of its innovative products and solutions.

“The future of the Mint will be well catered for through Cincom’s innovative solutions for our IT Business Systems. Along with our refurbishment project and new Material Handling and Warehousing System, the Mint is on its way to becoming a truly modern manufacturing facility,” she said.

“The refurbished Mint reopens in early 2009, with a more up-to-date public gallery and display of the National Coin Collection, which attract thousands of visitors to the Mint each year.”

Established in 1968, Cincom delivers software and services designed to simplify complex business processes. The company claims to have enabled thousands of clients to increase revenue, control cost, minimise risk and achieve rapid return on investment.

“Cincom is proud to have won the contract and to be associated with the Royal Australian Mint. Our systems and experience are in concert with the modernisation process currently underway at the Mint,” said Cincom managing director, Paul Hargreaves.

“We look forward to working with Frontier and Demand Management Systems in helping the Mint achieve its objectives to improve the efficiency, governance, and accountability of its business processes.”
