Thanks for the last Ten Years!

Posted Posted in News

Richard and Jill Buckley have done great work for Datatrax over the last ten years. Between the installations, the information centre visits, and the interactions with local business owners, their work has been extensive and invaluable. Now, it’s time to enjoy retirement while continuing to perform small jobs close to home in the Hunter Valley.

Richard and Jill celebrate three generations of kiosks with the team at HQ after their triumphant return.

In their time with Datatrax, Richard and Jill have been involved with three generations of TourismTouchscreen kiosks, travelled around the country several times, and visited hundreds of visitor information centres and tourism operators to look after hardware and scout potential new locations. We could not possibly have achieved such a massive upgrade without their help and they leave some big shoes to fill in servicing the network on the ground. We sincerely appreciate all of their efforts and wish them all the best.

Upgrades Completed

The Datatrax Installs crew has made it home after a record 27,000 kilometres travelled and 104 TourismTouchscreen locations visited. They’ve been on the road since March and have done a monumental job for us in successfully upgrading or replacing over 50 units. Such a massive job could never have been accomplished without the hard work of our people on the road. Many thanks to Richard and Jill for their efforts!

Visitor Information with a Side of Beans

Posted Posted in News

A high-traffic New South Wales site is now online. The visitor centres at Oliver’s Real Food on Wyong’s northbound and southbound F3 highway are now offering more features and better functionality to highway travellers, with a complete hardware and software upgrade to the TourismTouchscreens. The kiosks at Oliver’s are now wall-mounted Quest kiosks to minimise the footprint and cabling, while the system provides local mapping and weather. It’s great to have these sites be at their very best, with so many visitors stopping in on their way to and from Sydney.
