A note from Boileau’s Managing Director

This is the 10th year I’m participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and over that time, I’ve managed to fundraise $100,000 to help end homelessness.

 

None of that would’ve been possible without the help and donations from customers, business partners and the wider community. So, a massive THANK YOU from me and my team.

 

This year, Boileau kicked off the fundraising with a $10,000 donation and ask if our community would match it? PLUS, we commit that every additional $ raised above this goal will be matched dollar for dollar by Boileau.

 

No amount is too small, and feel free to share this article with anyone who may be able to help.

November Tech Update

A Nintendo Switch could be yours!

Survey: How do you see your business in 2021?

2020 has been a year of change. Next year, do you project that your business will be working in the office, remotely or a hybrid of both? Answer that question – and just a few more – to be entered to win a Nintendo Switch.

Never drop an important call

With Instant On wireless access points, voice and video business applications are automatically prioritised, so you stay connected with your peers. It’s easy and quick to be set up for all industry types including retail shops, cafes, schools, medical offices and reimagined offices.

What is location-aware office?

The consideration for workers to physically return to the office when it’s safe to do so is definitely on top of mind for most organisations. If we imagine a place where technology enables a safe environment with services such as heat mapping, proximity alerts, or contact tracing, this is known as the location-aware office. All of these location services are available and can be managed via the network infrastructure with Aruba.

IT Security must be part of every small business technology plan

Small business IT teams need to learn how to mitigate their security risks to protect the long-term health of their organisations. To start, implement a multilayered security plan to combat even the strongest attacks. Then having servers such as HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers, powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors that have built-in security features will keep your business secure.

Are you using Government SMB Support Schemes to upscale your IT?

Legacy Letter

Hi Angelique

 

Hello there, I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU on behalf of every Legacy Family in SA and Broken Hill, and all of us here at Legacy.

What an amazing job you did, supporting Legacy on Friday 6th November – honouring our fallen or injured heroes and raising funds to ensure Legacy Families do not suffer after the loss of a loved one who served our country.

Your incredible efforts, and every dollar you raised, means we can continue to care and support nearly 4,500 partners and children of our veterans.

Thank you once again, for every step you took and every dollar you raised for Legacy Families!

Although the event is over, there is still time to circulate your online fundraising page (open until 30 November); email your friends, work colleagues and family to get their support. We truly appreciate you getting behind us and helping us provide for veteran’s families in need.

Yours sincerely
