leave a comment »

SYDNEY/PRNewswire/ — Skills Connect Pty Ltd, a leading cloud based employment provider to corporate & government, today announced it has been selected as a Top 100 Finalist of the Red Herring 100 Global Award to be held in Los Angeles USA. The Award is prestigious recognition honouring the year’s most audacious and far reaching private technology companies and entrepreneurs from across the globe.
The Red Herring editorial team selected the Finalists for the 2012 Red Herring 100 Global Award. This group of companies is the short list for the Top 100 award. They are the most innovative and promising companies from a pool of thousands from across North America, Europe and Asia. The Finalists are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, IP creation, CAGR, execution of strategy, and disruption in their respective industries.
“Technology companies are becoming the bright spot in the economic outlook based on their increasing role within macro-economic environments,” stated Alex Vieux, Chairman of Red Herring. “2012 has confirmed the sector’s vibrant activity and its resilience to widespread economic problems. An unprecedented number of entrepreneurs are attempting to jump ahead of the competition and aspire to make a difference. Breakthroughs obsolete each other faster than ever before. Skills Connect has performed exceptionally in its field and strongly deserves to be singled out as one of the Red Herring Global Finalists. At this stage, we are left with the daunting task to select the best qualified companies for the 2012 Top 100 Global Award.”
After one final stage of judging – a live presentation at the Red Herring Global Forum in Los Angeles on November 27-29 – the 2012 Top 100 Global Winners will be selected. The formal announcement will occur at a special award dinner on November 29 at the event. http://www.redherring.com/red-herring-global/
Skills Connect CEO Mr. Bradley Birchall commented, “Hot on the heels of winning the Top 100 Asia award in Hong Kong, the Global Award is a tremendous opportunity for us to showcase our international leadership in cloud based disruptive employment and announce our intention to raise capital for our international growth.”
“Our solution meets a very clear need for increased productivity and cost savings at a time when companies and governments are struggling to improve productivity and savings. Employment went global some time ago, unfortunately the model did not, inefficiency is propagated through disconnects between parties in the employment process. We are the missing link, delivering productivity gains whilst improving the quality of hires; this should have been done a long time ago.”

World’s Most Rugged Tablet is Coming to Australia

leave a comment »

MELBOURNE, Australia /PRNewswire/ — Getac Technology Corporation has unveiled the technology inside the world’s most compact and robust Android tablet, as the device hits the Australasian market. It will be distributed exclusively by Synnex Australia Pty Ltd in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

Getac Z710 Fully Rugged Tablet
The 7-inch Getac Z710 is the only rugged tablet built with a glove-friendly touchscreen — thanks to Getac’s proprietary LumiBond™ technology. This new technology integrates Gorilla® Glass, a capacitive touch sensor and a LED panel, providing unprecedented touch sensitivity, even with gloves on.
“This unique feature will save time and boost productivity in sectors where users typically wear gloves to provide protection within hazardous working environments,” says Rowina Lee, Vice President, Getac Technology Corporation.
The LumiBond engineering also means the Z710 has a better viewing angle and sunlight readability than existing rugged tablets on the market.
Andrew Yu, Product Manager of Getac, from Synnex Australia — which will exclusively distribute the new device — says: “Getac has built the rugged tablet with the operator in mind, whether they work in utility, logistics, automotive, or other field service sectors that require communication and data capture functionality, operating in harsh environments. Those industry sectors are key part of the backbone industries to drive the ANZ economies.”
Field users will also benefit from communication and connectivity features built into the new device, including Bluetooth, WiFi, and 3G; unlike most devices which only offer data capture, the Z710 also offers voice capture. In addition, the unique navigation processor (SiRFstarIV™) provides best in class GPS accuracy.
The device includes RF pass-through, providing high-speed connectivity to the above communications functions — ideal for in-vehicle use.
“The RF pass-through provides faster and more reliable data delivery in real time, and with the corresponding in-vehicle docking station, the tablet becomes the ideal on-the-move communications solution,” Mr Yu says.
Data capture options include HW Barcode and high frequency RFID technology, while Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping is made easy with GPS, E-compass and accelerometer — providing state-of-the-art positional accuracy.
Ms Lee adds that as well as the array of data capture, communication and connectivity capabilities, the device will be the most rugged tablet of its kind; the Z710 is IP65 and MIL-STD-810G rated, and outclasses other rugged tablets by withstanding 6-foot drops and operating in temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius. This can allow restriction-free usage on all seasons and all geographic in Australia and New Zealand.
“The Z710 has the capacity to redefine the way technology is used in the field,” Ms Lee says. “The device is engineered to enhance business performance on-the-go and in tough conditions — and we know users will be able to rely on the tablet to deliver time and again.”
Getac Z710 Fully Rugged Tablet Product Key Features:
7″ touchscreen that you can operate with gloves on
Thin, small, and light (it’s only 800g)
Android 2.3
10-hour battery life
Proprietary LumiBond™ Gorilla Glass® for ultra-sensitive touchscreen
Rugged, with IP65 Certification and MIL-STD-810G Rating
SiRFstarIV™ High Sensitivity GPS for enhanced positioning accuracy
