Telstra launches new business centres

Business centre staff to demonstrate communications technology for small and medium businesses.

Telstra today announced the opening of 37 new business centres across Australia, which the telco claims will help small to medium enterprises (SMEs) become more efficient.

The new Telstra Business Centres will provide face-to-face help for small business owners, and will employ staff trained to give live demonstrations of business technology including mobile phones and office phone systems.

Telstra today officially opened the first of the new business centres in Malvern, in Melbourne’s inner east. The Malvern Business Centre will be one of 17 to open during the April, with another 20 business centres to open over the next year.

"We think the time is right to step up the level of help and advice Telstra provides by opening the doors of specialist Business Centres around the country", said Telstra's Deana Shiff. "Specially trained staff will be on hand to give live demonstrations and take the complexity out of buying communications technology."

Telstra claims that the new Business Centres, alongside existing T[life] retail stores, will provide more than a thousand Australian jobs. Telstra currently has 41 T[life] retail stores in operation, with a further 80 across the country to be opened before June 30.

The 17 new Telstra Business Centres opening over the next month include stores in Paddington, Tamworth, Port Melbourne, Rhodes, Epping and North Sydney. The 17 business centres to open in the coming months are:

  • Inner East Melbourne (Malvern): March 31

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
