Telstra to open 28 Business Technology Centres
Telstra has revealed plans to replace 78 business centres with 28 new Business Technology Centres across Australia, starting with a facility in Townsville.
The new facilities will provide guidance and advice to SMEs on the best technology solutions for their specific needs.
They will be designed to act as one-stop shops for Telstra’s entire range of small business technology solutions, ranging from fixed broadband and mobile services to website, cloud storage, software-as-a-service and e-commerce platforms.
According to Telstra Acting Group Executive for Consumer and Small Business Michael Ackland, the company plans to use the new centres to introduce a new way of interacting with small business customers, and help them build relationships with Telstra’s technology partners such as Microsoft and Cisco.
He said the company chose Townsville as the home of its first Business Technology Centre due to its importance as a major economic gateway for North Queensland.
“It has varied industries and more than 2000 businesses of all sizes — but despite being a major regional centre, there are limited choices for small and medium businesses when it comes to accessing new technology,” he said.
“We’ll now be making the most advanced software and technology business solutions available to businesses of all sizes as we open new Business Technology Centres across the country.”
