Australian publicly listed IT services company, UXC, has opened the doors to a new office in Sydney. It has relocated about 450 of its staff from various locations across Sydney to the new office in the CBD, bringing together staff from seven different parts of its business.
NSW minister for innovation and better regulation, Victor Dominello, officiated the formal opening. The office is the latest in a series of office consolidations UXC has already undertaken in Perth, Canberra and Melbourne.
UXC managing director, Cris Nicolli, said the initiative represents a major milestone in the company’s streamlining of its commercial leases across the country.
“Today, we do business with the Department of education in NSW, NSW Health, Ambulance NSW, the Department of Food, and Transport NSW. We’re proudly supportive of building capability around the IT sector in Australia and we look for government to support us.
“But today is a celebration of us growing up – compared to a few years ago, a number of companies have joined us and a number of entrepreneurs have worked with us. So today is a physical bringing together of our businesses,” he said.
Dominello said he has seen UXC has grow from being a small tech company to an international company with bases right across the world including Canada and Vietnam.
“It is a shining example of what we can do here in Sydney – to reach out to the world. Innovation is a state of mind and one thing that governments can do innovatively is work more collaboratively with organisations,” he mentioned.
According to Dominello, that’s one thing governments haven’t done well in the past.
“At the core of this information age, it’s not just the digital economy but the data economy that needs to be involved. We’re living in a world where we’re getting so much information being thrown at us but the average citizen needs it simplified.
“That’s why we’ve got to be clever in this data age in the way we process data and analyse data for the greater good. I can’t think of a better enabler to empower people than data analytics. Information is power and governments should be able to share data within agencies to enable a greater social outcome,” he added.
