How do you build the best imaginable web service for the aged care sector? You just keep innovating. is our partnership with Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA). The brief was to:

• build the ultimate consumer friendly educational portal and service guide that will position the aged care sector as positive and progressive to attract new employees to the sector• and showcase to the media that the sector is professional and responsible

Project leader Antonia Norris and I have just visited our colleagues in Colombo to fine-tune some unique tools we will be introducing.

Sri Lanka is an amazing country with a unique history that makes Europe look positively young. And the people are warm, friendly and exceptionally bright. They also do not have a mature aged care sector – their culture is for parents to live with their children as they age.

Our developers look at us questioningly.
