PERTH, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DTI Group Ltd (ASX:DTI) ("DTI”) advises that our French partner, Cibest SAS (Cibest), has been awarded a five year framework agreement for the supply of DTI video surveillance systems by L’Association pour la Gestion Indépendante des Réseaux (AGIR) which is an association of 172 independent transport providers who operate over 8,000 buses in France.
The framework agreement caters for the standardised procurement by AGIR members for video surveillance solutions which is available to the members at their discretion. The DTI solution is the only surveillance system selected by AGIR to be included on their centralized purchasing site through this process. AGIR members are not obliged to purchase through this site.
DTI's Managing Director, Richard Johnson commented: "This is an exciting development for our business in France. It allows us to quickly reach a range of smaller customers efficiently. It also makes it possible for members of AGIR to order products and services from us without tendering. I expect it will generate new sales in the near term."
