Sagem Australia was a finalist (ranked #3) in the inaugural Intermedium Leaping Frog Award (Froggy). We profile Sagem and its growth in the Federal Government market.

The Froggy award recognises Federal Government ICT market suppliers that achieved the fastest rate of sales growth over three years, as measured by their aggregate annual contract value from 2004-05 to 2006-07.

Sagem achieved contracts in 2006-07 of $14.6 million, up from $570,000 in 2004-05. This is an impressive rate of growth during the three years of 2,459%.

Sagem specialises in security solutions, and its success in the Froggy Award points to the strong demand for security in the Federal market.

Sagem's major clients in the Federal Government market in recent years have been Attorney Generals (areas such as AFP, CrimTrac) and DIAC.

Some of its most significant contracts in recent years include:

  • $2.7m contract at AG's (June 2006)
  • Contract for support at AG's ($1.96m, May 2004)
  • Another support contract at AG's in July 2006 worth $1.14m
  • Services contract at CrimTrac (June 2007, $670,000)

The Security Division of Sagem Australasia has been involved in various market segments for the last 20 years in Australia and New Zealand, such as police forensics activities, national identification systems, banking, health and IT Security. Sagem supplies CrimTrac National Fingerprint Identification Systems, SmartGate automatic passport control system, federal and state police department’s livescan fingerprint scanners, and NAB banking terminals.
