Wishlist welcomes Telstra as Alliance Partner.

4th March, 2020
Wishlist Alliance Partner – Telstra Business Technology Centre Sunshine Coast

Locally owned and operated Telstra Business Technology Centre Sunshine Coast has teamed up with one of Sunshine Coast’s leading charities, Wishlist – as an Alliance Partner.

Telstra Business Technology Centre Sunshine Coast General Sales Manager Dan Warne said he was proud to support a 100 percent local cause.

“Our Sunshine Coast hospitals are at the very heart of our community and we will be there to help every family on the Coast at one point or another,” Mr Warne said.

“I’ve fortunately been blessed with a healthy son and thankfully we haven’t had to use our local hospital, but I do realise how lucky we are.

“It’s a great privilege for us to be a part of the wonderful things Wishlist are able to provide the hospital and the wider Sunshine Coast Community.”

Mr Warne said assisting and supporting clients was at the forefront of the Telstra Business Technology Centre.

“Our business has evolved immensely over recent years, with a real focus on technology and how this relates to the individual need of our clients,” he added.  

“Our purpose is to guide people through their technology and communications journey, focusing on the right solution.

“We deliver this by providing market leading consultancy with a focus on client and data security, linked to a strategy to improve overall personal or commercial efficiency.”  

Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe said the partnership was an important one, as Telstra’s support assisted fundraising, and reduced the not-for-profits operational costs.

“Further to their financial contribution to the work of the charity, the team at Telstra have assisted us with mobile phones for key staff, iPads which are used for fundraising and Office 365 training,” Ms Rowe said.

Wishlist’s many accommodation facilities have also benefited from the partnership.

“Telstra have recently provided our 20 bed facility Reed House with a new telephone system and our soon-to-open six-bedroom accommodation ‘The House The Coast Builtin Birtinya now has WIFI and a security system, which will be of great relief for families needing to stay close to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and connected to their loved ones.”

“This support of Wishlist translates into a huge saving from an operational point of view, which we are truly thankful for.” 

Wishlist Development and Operations Manager Jeff McColl said Telstra Business Technology Centre Sunshine Coast wanted to be aligned with a like-minded organisation to support Sunshine Coast families.

“As a locally owned business, Telstra take seriously their custodianship in assisting Wishlist to move forward and work in a more efficient and technology-savvy way,” Mr McColl said.

“In return for their support as an Alliance Partner, we provide great networking and business connections, as well as brand exposure to all Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health staff and Wishlist supporters.

“We very much take care of our Wishlist partners as we are very appreciative for what they allow us to achieve as an organisation.”
