Communications integrator NSC Group has appointed two more staff to its Brisbane office.
Craig Neil, MD of NSC, said the Brisbane office -- part of NSC's Enterprise Solutions arm -- had doubled to four staff in the past eight weeks.
Three -- major account manager Rod Lester, customer solutions consultant Renee Hall and technical consultant Shaun Ellwood -- had transferred from other NSC roles, while one of the Brisbane office's original two employees had left the company, he said. 'We're re-building our office there. It's going through a bit of change -- there's a bit of resurgence in the Brisbane market, a lot of activity in the contact centre space,' he said.
Neil said the rate of IP telephony deployments in Australia 'definitely' seemed to be picking up in line with NSC's expansion strategy. The company said earlier this year that strong growth in the telecommunications sector was expected to nearly triple its revenues to $100 million by 2006.
'Our Queensland customers are telling us that their telecommunications requirements grow more complex almost every day,' he said. 'While our initial focus will be to work with existing clients, we expect to win new business with major enterprises and government organisations.'
Neil said 'plenty' of Queensland companies were ready to upgrade their legacy voice and data systems. NSC -- formerly North Shore Connections -- partners telecommunications vendors such as Lucent and Avaya.
The specialist integrator recently relocated its Sydney head office from Epping to larger premises in North Ryde. The company also added staff in Sydney and Canberra and opened offices in Adelaide and Perth this year as part of a restructure that divided the company into the two subsidiaries, NSC Enterprise Solutions and NSC Carrier Technology.
'For the past two years, we've had about 35 percent growth by revenue year on year and I think that's encouraging given that it has been a pretty tough couple of years what with tech wrecks and world wars and things,' Neil told CRN at the time.
