Tronic working with its customers to provide better outcomes

As they say, one person’s trash, is another person treasure.

This could not be any more true, thanks to a recent introduction by Tronic, between two long-standing clients of ours. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

Tronic has been working with Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS) since 2013 and Xchanging/DXC Technologies since 2015.

See below for a recent press release telling the full story.


As an expansion of DXC Technology’s traditional Community Technology Enablement Program (CTEP), DXC has partnered with Tronic to donate over 200 VoIP/IP phones and associated switch infrastructure to the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS). The VAHS’s have offices in Fitzroy, Preston and Epping, and provide a comprehensive range of medical, dental and social services to the First Nations communities living in and near these areas.

The donated hardware will enable VAHS to continue to deliver critical services to members of their community. Michael Graham, CEO of VAHS, said, “This technology upgrade will put us back on a technology path aligned with the important services we provide for the community. It has enabled VAHS to increase our capacity in trying to meet our increased demand across all our services and sites. We’re grateful to DXC and Tronic for their donation of equipment and services.”
DXC was introduced to the VAHS offices by Tronic , a Melbourne based, 100% Australian owned company. Tronic provided all consultation and project management pro bono for the system upgrade at VAHS.

Tronic Director, Troy Paas, said “Over the years we have had the pleasure of growing VAHS’s communications solution, supporting their expansion from Fitzroy to Preston and Epping. They now support most of Victoria’s First Nation community for its physical and mental wellbeing.
At Tronic, it’s important that we give back when we can, so it has been fantastic to be able to support VAHS by partnering with DXC on this amazing upgrade to their systems. This has allowed them to finance more support in other key areas at a critical time. It’s a fantastic gesture from DXC and the least we could do to help the community.”
The Community Technology Enablement Program is one of DXC’s key Reconciliation Action Plan initiatives, harnessing the power of technology to enable and support self-determination for First Nations peoples.

DXC Indigenous Program Lead, Stuart Meadley, said “CTEP is all about providing the right kind of support to empower and enable First Nations groups to act on their unique insights and perspectives. We are really pleased to have expanded CTEP beyond laptop donations because it signals the program is flexible and mature enough to accommodate the various needs of our local communities.”

Simon O’Toole, DXC’s First Nations Community Engagement Lead, and a Eualayai / Gamillaroi man and Senior Technical Consultant at DXC added, “The CTEP Program is about supporting First Nations communities. Community Controlled Health Services providers such as VAHS play a critical role in Closing the Gap, and we are proud to support them in delivering outcomes to their community.”
