Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2004 Week 4 Hansard (30 March) . . Page.. 1293..
MRS BURKE (continuing):
government public sector science agency. Peter Moran and Bruce McDonald did the company proud.
TASKey Pty Ltd is a management and IT company that develops and provides innovative management methods and software tools to apply and sustain those methods. Dr Neil Miller and Bob Quodling certainly did their company proud, too. Random Computing Services has been based in the national capital since 1991. Random is one of Australia's oldest and most experienced Lotus/Domino software specialists, with great success in government.
HATRIX Pty Ltd develops medication management systems and decision support software for the healthcare market. @lacrity Technologies has developed a closed loop environment for wireless communication system, or CLEW. Using the internet and mobile devices, it enables time critical information to be sent simultaneously to multiple recipients and for those recipients to respond and complete a business transaction.
GPSports develops performance evaluation technology based around GPS and heart rate capture for the sports, fitness and health markets. Traxsoftware, under the leadership of Bill Barker and Scott Cargill, provides maintenance software solutions and specialises in designing, developing and deploying leading edge management systems through handheld wireless technology.
Mr Speaker, you can see that we have some incredible companies in Canberra. I will continue to encourage the government to support and underpin their efforts. It is sometimes not easy to do business in a jurisdiction such as Canberra. Certainly, the American market is quite difficult for people to get into, so I applaud the efforts of the Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism in his work over there. I would like to quote Adrian Faccioni from GPSports Systems. He said:
ANZATech for GPSports was an opportunity to show our company and technology to a new and currently untapped market on the West Coast of the United States. It also helped us streamline our marketing and sales pitches for future investment rounds as well as developing stronger relationships with the other local companies whom attended. Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely worth the time and effort.
Businesses do not give up their time easily; they have to stick at what they do. I think it was an investment for them. Whilst many of them said to me how appreciative they were of the money given to them to help them and subsidise them on this trip, they gave an awful lot of time and commitment to it, too. In terms of networking and the Palo Alto Club that has been mentioned, males often need a kick-start in this area, but it has been very positive from the feedback I have been getting from that. Again I applaud the government, BusinessACT and Australian Business Ltd for a great trip and hope to see more of it in the future.
