USA & INDIA: Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications, has been selected by Mott MacDonald as its global telecommunications partner for the next five years in a deal worth over $20 million.
Tata Communications was chosen as a result of its comprehensive range of integrated and unified communications solutions – solutions that will allow the diverse global management, engineering and development consultancy to consolidate its multiple regional systems onto a single platform. The move will create new levels of global collaboration as well as a solid competitive advantage.
The deal marks a strategic alliance between the two companies which will provide renewed centralised communications for Mott MacDonald. The significant investment by the consultancy will further enhance project collaboration between nearly 15,000 employees across 50 countries worldwide.
Tata Communications’ redesign of its WAN environment and infrastructure for global unified communications will enable Mott MacDonald to centralise business collaboration tools such as document management systems into the cloud, allowing enhanced accessibility for projects requiring real-time international collaboration.
It will also create new levels of communication throughout the organisation, optimising Mott MacDonald’s investment in Microsoft Lync as the common global communications tool for both internal and external communication.
