Next Dream

The STAR CEO says he's now looking at new ways to use the Hitachi infrastructure, including its ability to support an imminent merger with another Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation. After the merger the combined group will support a total of 21 locations.

Mr Doedens’ new tech-savvy workforce has the opportunity to innovate and improve various elements of their jobs.

In this video: STAR Tasmania CEO, Ralph Doedens discusses about looking ahead at new ways to use the Hitachi infrastructure and Hitachi Finger Vein. (1min, 22s).

“We’re now starting to develop an intranet and a client relationship management system that all staff can access. We do have a client system but we’re now wanting all staff to be able to access it – and we can do all of that now because they have now got used to the idea that modern technology does make their life easier.”
