At an award presentation in Sydney, Diamond took out the award for the “Most Innovative Managed Service Provider of the Year” by world leading MSP software vendor Kaseya. Robert Buck, Managed Director of Diamond and James Weakley, Client Services Manager, accepted the award on behalf of the company.

Robert Buck said, “We’re very excited to be recognised as the leading innovator in the Australasian region by Kaseya, who themselves are the largest and most successful MSP software provider in the world. The award validates our strategy of continued investment back into the company to improve our service offering, which has led to Diamond having one of the most advanced IT maintenance and monitoring systems in Australia”.

Dermot McCann, ANZ Managing Director, Kaseya, said “Kaseya works with partners providing the software, training, support and services which partners need to achieve outstanding results in their particular markets and areas of specialisation.

Despite having entries from some of the largest service providers and systems integrators in Australia and New Zealand, the Innovation Award went to Diamond, a regional service provider, who were deemed to be running the most impressive and innovative implementation of Kaseya.”

Do you work from a home office or remotely? If so, you telework. Even if it’s only one day a month, you’re a part of the workforce of the future.
Join National Telework Week from 12-16 November and commit to working remotely for one or more days during the week. Whether you’re an employee or an employer, National Telework Week can help you to increase productivity, find a better work/life balance, and become a part of Australia’s anywhere working world.

What is Telework?
Telework is working regularly from a place other than the office, in most cases from a home office. It utilises information and communications technology to stay connected to colleagues and work systems.

The pending rollout of the NBN will be a key enabler for telework as high-definition interactive environments between the traditional workplace and a teleworker’s location of choice become a reality.

The Australian Government’s aim to increase the take up of telework is part of its National Digital Economy Strategy which aims to position Australia as one of the world’s leading digital economies. The telework goal is to double Australia’s level of telework by 2020, so that at least 12 per cent of Australian employees report having a telework arrangement with their employers.

Who are the Partners?
There are more than 100 organisations that have joined the Telework Partner program. They include public, private, and not-for-profit (NFP) organisations as well as large and small businesses including Diamond Group.

Telstra consumer mobile customers soon will be able to use their phone’s data service without the risk of an unexpectedly high bill, commonly known as “bill shock”.

They will be among the first in the world to have their data speeds slowed when they exceed their mobile data allowance and not be charged for excess domestic data usage. The changes are in development and will be launched by year’s end.

Customers who have used their data allowance will be able to top-up directly from their handsets to resume full-speed data services such as web browsing. Telstra’s existing data alerts system –which provides data usage alerts via SMS at 80 and 100 percent of the allowance –will also be upgraded so SMS alert messages are sent to customers in near real-time.
