Damstra secures extended partnership
Investors are buying Damstra shares after the company provided a positive update to the ASX this morning.
According to its release, Damstra advised it has signed a multi-year Master Services Agreement (MSA) with its existing customer, nbn.
Under the contract, Damstra will continue to supply its dedicated workforce management platform, enAble to Australia’s national wholesale broadband provider. This will allow over 25,000 workers and contractors nationwide to have access to the specially designed and branded platform for nbn.
The enAble platform can perform a number of functions. This includes storing worker’s skills and competencies, hosting online training, and providing real-time information about nbn accreditations with auditing capability. In addition, the software ensures that all nbn employees and contractors have the required skills to carry out tasks.
Damstra plans to employ digital ID cards which will provide further processing efficiencies, allowing contractors to deliver nbn services faster.
The deal has an initial term of 3 years and includes three 1-year contract extensions (end date up until 2027). Damstra expects the total revenue over the full-life of the contract to generate up to $7 million. This is broken down to $5 million in monthly fees, and a variable $2 million on expected platform usage.
Damstra CEO, Christian Damstra commented:
We are very pleased to announce the signing of this MSA with nbn; already a valued customer of Damstra. We are proud of the work we have put into developing and evolving the enAble platform and this agreement clearly demonstrates the confidence nbn has in Damstra’s ability to provide critical services for their workers and contractors across Australia. We look forward to continuing the relationship with nbn for many years to come.
