MGM says the contract - with a value of approximately $1.3 million for a 2-year term - was awarded after a tender process, where student absence and emergency messaging for child safety were key criteria.
Under the contract, all WA Government schools will have access to the entire suite of MGM’s school communication software, apps and services.
The contract terms provide an option for the WA Government to extend further on an annual basis for 2 more years, with this latest contract replacing a previous and similar contract MGM Wireless had with the WA Government since 2014.
MGM Wireless CEO Mark Fortunatow said: “We are thrilled to be selected by the WA Government. From a student safety perspective, student absence and emergency messaging are such important, mission critical systems, as we’ve all witnessed with the recent bushfires and now the Coronavirus threat”.
“MGM’s systems are specifically designed for school and Education Department use and are renowned for their data security, quality and robustness. Our latest versions incorporate advanced AI functionality that is particularly effective in engaging parents and delivering significant productivity savingsto school staff.”
