As you will have read Australian business productivity is going backwards. Not good news in a time of lots of other bad news, but something that can be readily tackled (unlike the US/EU economies)
Beyond getting workers to work harder and smarter, the big opportunity for business to create more output, with the same labour or less is to leverage technology. Some of these opportunities may be obvious like work place mobility (blackberry’s, iPhones and tablet computers) and some are not.
Productivity experts divide businesses into three groups – which category do you fit in?
1) Actively adopt new technology, drive value from it to create competitive advantage and drive productivity gains, utilise technology to connect with customers.
2) Looking at technology and using a fair bit of it, but haven’t ingrained deployment and adoption into your culture and business DNA.
3) Know there is lots of new technology but are not actively looking to deploy. Directors / Managers leave tech decision making to others.

Hot on the heels of our Zoom Video launch, Visium was excited to receive an invite to the launch of Telstra’s Customer Experience Center.
Along with a selection of leading IT companies, Visium enjoyed a first hand glimpse of life the NBN world thanks to a shiny new facility designed to support and shape the telecommunications decisions of Victorian businesses now and into the future.
Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu cut the ‘virtual’ ribbon along with Telstra CEO David Thodey by pointing some lasers on a massive wall display. This kicked off a multi-media show that depicted a networked Australia.
After the formalities, guests were shown through an entire floor of 242 Exhibition street decked out as mock businesses, board rooms and lounge rooms of the future.
In attendance was Visium’s Michael Brown who snuck out a few photos with his trusty iPhone (Don’t tell the Telstra PR guys) – Here the Premier and Mr Thodey check out a new iPad app that virtualises what you look at. The app lets you tour a bare bones facility and look around the room as if it was fitted out with furniture, partitions offices etc. This certainly captured imaginations and might help avoid some costly fit out mistakes in the future:

Last week Visium released Zoom Video, a dedicated website for our super affordable megapixel camera packages. In attendance at the launch were senior representatives of Telstra, our valued telecommunications partner.
We had a fascinating discussion about the future of Australian communications and how, within a very short space of time things are going from the copper age, to the fibre age. OK, we’ll get faster internet so downloading your favourite TV show from the US will be heaps quicker, but what does the NBN really mean for business?

One of the hardest things to manage in security is making sure your system is armed when it needs to be. In this post we take a look at ‘late to close’, or ‘late to arm’ issues and some helpful hints to reduce your risk and after hours management contact.
In any given security control room anywhere in the world, more time and resource is spent dealing with late to arm sites than with all other services including intruder monitoring.
This creates an unhealthy distraction for control rooms, and puts everyone at risk. Whilst control rooms can ease operator load with new types of notification systems the only real fix is more reliable information from staff and contractors working back late. (VideoControlRoom provides an SMS notification service explained in more detail later on in this post)
