Simultech Pty Ltd is a company that delivers
professional consulting services in the information technology (IT) business sector
to a variety of government departments and industry. Recent growth
in the government sector has led Simultechís executives
to give priority to government work in preference to work
in industry. Industry work has generally been focused on shorter-term
tasks. Government work tends to be longer term. Simultech is now looking to expand its government work, and
the prospect of an expansion of government outsourcing suggests that
this is a most viable way ahead.
