Unisys said that its Australian subsidiary has been awarded a five-year contract by the West Australian Public Trustee to provide support and enhancements for their Management Accounting Trust Environment (MATE) application.
The contract is for three-year period, with the option of two one-year extensions. It builds on an eight year-relationship during which Unisys has built, supported and modernised the Public Trustee application.
The Public Trustee offers professional trustee and asset management services to the West Australian community, which includes will and enduring power of attorney drafting, deceased estate administration, executor support, financial administration and trust management services. It is a statutory body that operates under the authority of the Parliament of Western Australia.
MATE has been the core enterprise application at the West Australian Public Trustee since 2001. It was derived from a similar Client Information Management System (CIMS) purchased from the Queensland Public Trustee. Unisys was engaged to modify and customise CIMS to reflect the different working practices and legislation in effect in Western Australia, the company said.
Allen Koehn, vice president for public sector at Unisys Asia Pacific said, “Unisys looks forward to continuing a very successful relationship with the WA Public Trustee for another five years, and is proud of its role in building and supporting the core business systems of an agency that plays such a critical role in managing the financial affairs of a significant number of West Australians.”
