Adelaide business website specialist Alltraders has made online marketing activities quicker and simpler for Adelaide-based young business group, Gr8 Business Connections.
Gr8 Business Connections is a group for business owners, managers and business intenders aged between 18 and 35 years old.

Founded in 1996, Alltraders uses the Joomla! Content Management System to design and deliver easy-to-use websites that substantially reduce the cost of maintaining a website while increasing its effectiveness in achieving business goals.

Adelaide premises protection specialist Vision Security Services has launched a range of new generation IP video technology that uses existing computer network cabling to monitor buildings.
The German-developed Mobotix cameras can be incorporated into existing computer cabling infrastructure to provide traditional security coverage as well as allowing remote electronic monitoring as an alternative to permanent on-site staff using analogue technology.
The affordable range of Mobotix equipment can also address duty-of-care responsibilities, operational production monitoring and access control as well as OH&S (Occupational Health & Safety) requirements.
Vision Security Services managing director John Convill said the Mobotix technology had been developed during the past decade. “Their technology appears to be where VoIP telephony was about three years ago,” he said.
“It’s on the crest of a wave of acceptance as technology departments increasingly acquire responsibility for IP video surveillance from traditional building management or security staff.
“While this technology is not unusual in the ICT industry, it’s typically beyond the technical comfort zone of the traditional security organisation.”
