Supporting Australian businesses with free access to crucial business services during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Business Continuity site has seen over 14,000 visitors accessing the resource with collaboration and workforce management tools proving the most in demand.

Launched by The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), and supported by the Federal Government, the offers available to businesses on the site have doubled to 30.

The resource offers a range of remote communications, collaboration and workforce management tools and video conferencing solutions for business continuity. Businesses can also access a range of documents and guides aimed at successfully navigating their remote servicing needs that can be deployed out of the traditional office environment.

Mr Ron Gauci, CEO AIIA said: “It is clear from the considerable amount of visitors we have had to the site over such a small period of time, that businesses during this difficult time are most interested in tools and information that can keep their business and employees connected, productive and happy.”

To date, the most popular resources businesses are seeking are: collaboration tools (21%),

workforce management (19%), resources and tools (13%), advice and information on best practice for business continuity (13%) and technology offers themselves to support virtual meetings (9%).

Whilst the site launched with free offers by a range of AIIA member companies including: Telstra, Google, ServiceNow, Cisco, Facebook, Microsoft, Adobe, NBN Co, Salesforce and SAP, many more have joined over the past week, most of whom are Australian SMEs.

Mr Gauci continued: “The AIIA appreciates all the support that has been provided with this initiative. We would like to thank the companies who have already signed on for their support in assisting Australian businesses, schools, students, governments and workplaces for contributing to this online resource in what is proving to be a challenging time for all businesses.

“Clearly from the response we have received, the website is seen as an invaluable resource for those who are needing this type of assistance.”
