Qantas flies in PwC for e-biz venture

PricewaterhouseCoopers is helping Australian airline Qantas fly safely into the e-business market in the hope of cutting operationg costs by 15%.

The airline has enlisted PricewaterhouseCoopers and technology services group IBM Global Services to deliver the service dubbed eQ, according to the Australian Wired magazine.

A Qantas spokesman said in a statement: ‘eQ will enable us to provide new and innovative business solutions through a series of projects designed to increase productivity and efficiency, and drive significant cost savings expected to be more than 15% in e-enabled areas.’

The moves were the first steps towards creating an internet-enabled business, the statement said.

Qantas chief information officer Fiona Balfour added: ‘For Qantas to remain competitive and to meet future business challenges it is imperative that we lay down the foundation now for creating a fully e-enabled organisation. eQ represents that first and significant step.’
