Chennai-based Sundaram Infotech Solutions Ltd, the IT subsidiary of Sundaram Finance Ltd, has signed an expanded IT deal with Easybookings, a Victoria, Australia, headquartered online ticketing and event management firm.

As part of the deal, Sundaram Infotech will build an online auctioning and shopping platform, develop new mobile apps and also build a mini site, a concept that is catching up in Australia, for Easybookings. The new platform would also help Easybookings launch its offering in the New Zealand market, a release stated here on Monday. Sundaram Infotech had earlier signed an initial deal to build an online ticketing engine for Easybookings.

John Pereira, managing director, Easybookings said, “We chose Sundaram Infotech for their domain technical expertise and for having the right mix of onshore presence and the offshore capability.”

Deepa Ramesh, head, Sundaram Infotech, said, “Australia has traditionally been a strong overseas market for Sundaram Infotech with over 10 customers. This deal with Easybookings strengthens further our presence in the Australian IT services market. We will continue to aggressively target the market and are confident of expanding our customer base there over the next 12 months.”
