BaptistCare NSW, ACT goes live with Civica Cx cloud


Software applications, digital solutions and managed services vendor Civica has announced that aged care and community housing provider BaptistCare NSW & ACT is its first Australian customer to go live on Cx, the cloud-based, tenant-centric community housing management solution.

BaptistCare signed up for Cx, the digital platform for social housing, earlier last year after reviewing the market for a solution to reduce costs and improve productivity and efficiencies, enabling greater investment in affordable housing. The implementation took six months.

Richard Fiddis, managing director for Civica International, says the key benefit offered by Cx was a solution that put tenants at the heart of the offering, with tenant centric features including improved communication between tenants and employees with an intuitive Web portal and streamlined data collection dissemination enabling less administration and more time spent with the community.

Mobility features of Cx ensure that employees have access to up-to-date business and tenant information through web based dashboards, helping them take corrective action when needed.

“This is our first Australian go-live for Cx, a market leading solution used extensively in the UK by many social housing providers,” Fiddis said.

“I’m delighted that the implementation has been successful, with BaptistCare employees now using Cx out in the field to streamline their administration.

“I congratulate the BaptistCare and Civica implementation teams for their hard work on this project, and I look forward to our ongoing partnership.”

Mike Furner, general manager, Housing & Retirement Living at BaptistCare, says: “Cx will change the way we operate, most importantly enabling our teams to focus more on improving the lives of communities we serve. I’m pleased that we have successfully completed the implementation according to the deadlines we had set for each phase, and we are now live on Cx.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
