Community First International
Community care & support

"There is a great benefit in having a local WA service provider who understands the challenges we face from both a service and budgetary perspective. We were very impressed with their depth of technical knowledge and delighted to find a provider who wished to partner with us over the longer term to help manage our needs, and not just sell us a static solution. We believe that this willingness to work with us to develop future technology solutions to drive our business and business efficiencies in an evolving market environment will be a key asset in the future."

"The Cirrus solution represents an investment in superior technology which will support our vision of a fully mobilised workforce. This is considered an essential building block in building the business’ future in the newly competitive environment of consumer-directed care, and will facilitate efficiencies being sought in finance and HR."

"The Cirrus proposal gives us a fully scalable and flexible system architecture, allowing us to fully access the benefits of a cloud based solution.  It leverages the best current technology available and provides a platform which will allow Community First to take advantage of new capabilities such as mobile computing, and software development to provide better data collection and analysis – all of which we see as key drivers to our ability to support more people in the future."

Macedon Ranges Shire Council

Council

Covering 1,747 square kilometres, the Macedon Ranges Shire Council is one renowned for its pristine landscapes, native forests and unique natural features. Whilst staff based in the council’s service centres of Kyneton, Gisborne, Romsey and Woodend had access to internal collaborative resources, the elected Councillors – most of which are based offsite – did not.

A number of solutions were investigated by the Council (including competing cloud platforms and hosted desktops), however none provided the level of integration nor flexibility that their existing IT footprint demanded. Recognising the need to improve community interaction whilst maintaining simplicity, manageability and interoperability led the Council to appointing Cirrus Victoria (previously NGage Technology Group) for their Office 365 pilot initiative.

This implementation has provided Macedon Ranges Shire Council the option to – now or in the future – eliminate on-premises infrastructure (and move to a cloud environment with minimal effort) with no discernible impact to users. Enabling the business to utilise a phased (rather than ‘big bang’) approach significantly reduces risk and empowers individual users or departments to migrate when it suits them.

Maurice Blackburn

Lawyers

Maurice Blackburn has doubled in size over the past 5 years and is now equipped with 1100 staff that operate from over 30 offices around Australia. “Supporting this growth form an IT perspective is imperative in ensuring ongoing performance. The company requires technology that will keep up with its rapid expansion and increasing storage demands.” Brett Johnstone, Maurice Blackburn’s CIO.

The document management application was utilised as a significant business tool and it had become sluggish and presented challenges. An investigation by Johnstone’s team revealed the decreasing performance of the existing SAN as well as a need for additional storage for growth.

Cirrus Victoria (previously NGage Technology Group) put forward a solution that encompassed Pure Storage’s flash technology that would solve the additional storage requirement as well as deliver a high performing SAN. The solution was reviewed by Johnstone’s team to certify that this was a suitable resolution for the growing firm. Johnstone said “Pure presented a great foundation for storage performance moving forward and will more than satisfy our three year projection and storage requirements.”
