One of the Gold Coast’s oldest business has milked the talents of one of the city’s fastest-growing companies in a partnership aimed at increasing efficiency and eliminating paper use.

Farmer-owned dairy co-operative Norco engaged global hardware and communications company Powertec Telecommunications to boost signal strength at their Gold Coast factory.

Norco’s Gold Coast general manager Sandra Hollands said it was the right time to implement a paperless environment but that it took expertise to overcome challenges that cropped up in what was initially thought would be a straightforward process.

“Due to the design and building materials used in the construction of our Gold Coast factory we needed some expert advice and hardware to enact our plans,” she said.

Using eight of its CEL-FI GO products – an indoor and outdoor smart signal repeater – Powertec provided Norco with four clusters of signal amplifiers that were positioned through various location in the factory to increase the Telstra signal.
