HCL Technologies said it has signed up a new client — Australian power transmission company TransGrid, based in New South Wales.

The five year deal will see the Indian outsourcing company provide most of the outsourcing functions for the company, including service desk operations, data center operations, security, disaster recovery, end-user computing facilities and applications.

In addition, HCL Tech will also create a roadmap to transform the business using technology.

HCL will create a TransGrid Academy for “cultural alignment and talent pool incubation”.

“We believe this partnership with HCL will allow us to ensure the IT Services delivered to TransGrid are cost effective and fit for purpose,” said Michael Milne, IT Operations Manager, TransGrid.

The partnership will help TransGrid realize its vision of delivering excellence and support its mission of creating values by providing safe, reliable and efficient transmission services, the companies said.

HCL said it will introduce its “flagship employee engagement practices” to establish “a culture of innovation” at TransGrid.
