AN increasing number of small
businesses are using technology
to boost productivity, manage
costs and help grow their
business, according to Glenn
Leckie, the Albury-Wodonga Telstra Business
Centre's business sales manager.
"The result of our latest national business
survey shows that not only has confidence
returned to 75 per cent of the businesses
surveyed, more than quarter were also looking
to use technology to fuel their growth," Mr
This is where the team at the new Dean
Street premises can help, with customised
communication solutions backed by
the resources of Australia's largest
"We're really passionate about helping local
businesses get the most from the latest digital
technology," Mr Leckie said.
"Of course, even in this improved economic
climate, we understand growth isn't going to be
on everyone's priority list.
"However, by providing simple all in one
business communications packages we can
also help businesses work more effectively,
become more flexible or even better manage
"Whether you're running a small trade
operation or managing a large multi-site
business, we can demonstrate the latest
technology at the centre and match to what you
need for your business."
There's no doubt targeted-technology can
help a business achieve its goals.
Mobile and office-based telephone systems
can allow people to stay connected. Plans
with features like free calls in Australia between
phones on the same account can also generate
Fixed and wireless broadband, as well as
smart phones, can help businesses take
advantage of the internet while also giving them
the flexibility to work remotely.
For larger companies, a managed Internet
Protocol (IP) network can take the hassle out of
keeping a business connected across its sites
through a virtual private network, while ensuring
better performance and allowing innovative
bolts-on systems, like IP telephony.
Another rapidly-growing business technology
is 'cloud computing' and particularly Software
as a Service, where users can lease remotely
hosted software applications instead of paying
potentially large upfront license fees. The
provider runs all the necessary hardware for the
program, like servers, as well as providing the
technical and security expertise. All the user
needs is a computer and an internet connection.
Telstra is already one of the leading providers
of cloud computing services in Australia.
Through its Software as a Service offering
T-Suite, it provides hosted applications from
leading software providers like Microsoft and
Symantec to meet a wide range of business
Software on T-Suite can help businesses
manage their email and communications, as
well as documents and finances; automatically
backup their vital data; assist them in managing
their staff in line with the latest workplace
legislation; or help protect their business data
from viruses and security threats. Plus with
T-Suite you can trial most software applications
free for 30 days.
On top of helping businesses get the most
from the latest digital technology, the centre also
offers dedicated account managers to deliver
a better service, loan phones when handsets
are on the blink and management of equipment
"We know how busy things get so we want to
do all we can to make it as easy as possible for
local businesses," Mr Leckie said.
