Swift Access is Swift's flagship product.

Under the MinRes deal it will be installed in more than 2000 accommodation rooms and common areas.

With Swift Access MinRes staff will be able to cast their favourite streaming apps from their mobile device straight to their room's TV while maintaining their privacy.

It also offers smart device set-up and management to make life easier for facility staff.

As part of the agreement MinRes staff will have access to Swift's full content library including first release movies and sector-specific mental health and Indigenous education resources.

Swift Access will also allow facility managers to upload and distribute site information such as inductions, health and safety messages and more, directly to TVs across the site.

The Swift Access service is managed by Swift's bandwidth management platform and includes support services over the three-year term.

Swift CEO Brian Mangano said for the past five years MinRes and Swift had enjoyed a strong partnership.

"MinRes was the first mining company to trial Swift Access at its Wonmunna camp in Western Australia earlier this year," he said.

"This latest collaboration is a natural next step in Swift's mission to assist MinRes in providing an outstanding workplace experience.

"We are excited to grow a Swift and MinRes partnership and look forward to working together to create new, innovative solutions to address the challenges of the FIFO [fly-in, fly-out] lifestyle."
