In a country where fast-paced consumerism is on the increase, the demand for safety and risk management, as well as organisational data recording, is at an all-time high. Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, marking a pivotal moment in Australian Business history. The combination of the two presented us with an opportunity to develop a customised system to help!
We took our team with over 60 combined years of innovation, governance experience, sales and NFP involvement and created a dynamic system that is set to lay some pretty serious foundations in Aussie business circles.
With an exciting launch of a cache of customizable risk and safety management systems in 2018, we are presenting solutions with incredible feedback in the test phase. Our inspiring leaders of BERTS; Mike Wood and Martin Stow saw that heavy resource problems facing large business groups, NFPs, Social Entrepreneurs and Small Owner Operators needed something fresh encompassing emerging technology.
“Many organizations are scrutinized and left trying to manage safety, and risk management compliance with a “one size fits all model,” says Mike. “The risk of loss of resources, money and time is compounding. Many businesses aren’t meeting their requirements, which leaves them wide open for both tragedy and harsh consequences. The time has come for diligence and customized care that doesn’t cost the earth,”
Our refreshing philosophy that one size indeed doesn’t fit all when it comes to safety and risk management has been popular with organisations. “You don’t want a band-aid for a broken leg solution,” says Martin. Since opening our digital solutions to a cross-section of industries, we have witnessed repeated feedback: the complex issues facing business owners are being transformed into user-friendly and simple options. This is alongside a complimentary BERTS assistant ( a real person!) is something that is bound to shake up the Safety and Risk Tech industry.
“We see many organizations weighed down with complex and expensive systems and a real difficulty in managing data collection that is ‘fiddle proof’ and automated. We see it as our service to the Business Community as a whole to help them keep afloat of issues and become stronger than ever before.”
“Quite simply because we love what we do, we love developing relationships built on integrity. It makes everyone feel good! We are so excited about how technology can simplify and assist people in business, and the excitement combined with a passion for safety is infectious in our company culture” says Martin. This philosophy in addition to a passionate team has seen the company go from strength to strength, a philosophy echoed by the voice of industry!
According to Industry.gov.au “Evidence shows that when a small business begins to digitize and use digital tools, it creates new growth opportunities and diversifies revenue streams. This is the same for workplace safety, we now have the tech to supply workplace safety tools for Australia that are simple. Adopting digital technologies also helps small businesses to find talent, access finance, work smarter and enhances the value of the business when it is time to sell. However, many small businesses are not taking advantage of the opportunities that the digital economy offers.” Headed by Mark Bouris, the department will be launching a Small Business Digital Taskforce in 2018 addressing issues facing Aussie industry.
It is a timely nudge for all organizations big and small in every industry to embrace digital solutions and make sure their risk safety blueprint is built on integrity and customization. These steps will ensure they continue to be the driving force of our foundations for many years to come and not end up another tragic statistic for those to look at in the future.
