Media Release – LOCAL BUSINESSES REAPING BENEFITS OF ONLINE ENGAGEMENT

 

Boasting an online presence has become an essential tool for businesses wishing to maximise customer contact by embracing digital technology.

The ongoing rollout of Bundaberg Regional Council’s Bundaberg Digital Enterprise Program continues delivering group workshops with more workshops scheduled to commence in July.

Council’s Economic Development portfolio spokesperson, Cr Greg Barnes said the uptake of the workshops since their inception had clearly demonstrated that business owners see the benefit of using technology as a key operational element of their business strategy.

The courses provide everything from basic information and instruction regarding online communication through to more advanced information focussing on cloud and cloud applications and cyber privacy and security.

“Word is definitely spreading throughout the business community and not-for-profit organisations about the benefits of tapping in to the digital economy. To date we’ve seen 240 participants and 110 unique organisations partake in the program.”

The Digital Enterprise Program is funded by the Australian Government and sponsored by Bundaberg Regional Council. 

The program assists small to medium sized businesses and not-for-profit organisations to better understand how they can maximise opportunities from greater digital engagement. The program will continue through August 2015.

The next scheduled block of workshops will commence on July 21 and will see venues in Bundaberg and Childers included in the program,” Cr Barnes said.

Under the program, Bundaberg Regional Council and consultancy group Gravelroad work directly with participating businesses and organisations to facilitate group training sessions. 

Participants who complete at least one group workshop will become eligible for four hours of one-on-one professional mentoring.
