Open Family secures web donations

Several charities, such as Care Australia and UNICEF Australia, already offer online donations, but is the first in Australia to use QSI Payments' secure internet payments.

Ocean Internet's general manager, Chris Hawkes, said QSI Payments' solution safely routed credit card details to the Commonwealth Bank for processing. He said Open Family did not store or have access to benefactors' credit card details, thereby eliminating the risk of abuse through unauthorised access of its database.

QSI Payments' internet payments solution uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology and provides the required formatting, encryption and digital signing of Digital Orders to ensure that payments are securely received by banks from customers.

Open Family's site also features a news page, photo gallery, a chat room, and information and application forms for street workers and volunteers.

Ocean Internet started life as an internet service provider and has since expanded into provision of custom-designed business software and website solutions. Its clients include the Royal Australian Airforce, West End Association and The Guam Gaming Authority.

Open Family is an organisation of street workers that helps street children to tap into support services and programs that are available in the local area.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
