In an era when collaboration is the by-word, South Regional TAFE WA (SR TAFE) was severely hampered by its limited video conferencing capacity. Its existing, ageing infrastructure was difficult to use, and had connectivity issues, with the only service a direct Cisco link between Albany and Bunbury.
The new solution was to create enhanced teaching, meeting and collaborative work areas. It needed to provide flexibility in access to technology and room setup so that spaces were not locked into a single use.
Swain Kirk, Chief Information Officer at South Regional TAFE WA, says: “In my previous role at James Cook University, I’d introduced Zoom across the board and saw it working so well. I understood its potential to transform my new environment.”
Having decided on Zoom, “we went to market to find a competent partner that could deliver our requirements in all 12 campuses. CompNow came out on top, from three bids,” he says.
