Run Your Office From Your Pocket Anywhere in the World
Perth, Australia: Brookstone Technologies, an Australian company (1987) is based in the most remote, largest "big city" on earth-- it is three hours by airplane to another city over 1M. Yet, this city is in a time zone that is home to half the earth's population. They live and work in what is known as GMT+8 (Greenwich Mean Time plus 8 hours) and here they have access to half of the world's population. Their time zone includes Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, and more.
Given their geographic location, it is no wonder that these people developed award-winning software that allows them to work in their own virtual office such that they could be anywhere and still have access to all the same information that was coming through their offices back home.
The core product is BrookstoneVirtualOffice which is a virtual-office, paperless-office system. With full Customer Relationship Management, Document - Activities Manager, Policies & Procedures Management (ISO 9000) and much more, the system is designed for centralized as well as geographically dispersed organizations and teleworking environments.
John Stockbridge and Errol Pollnow merged two struggling companies to form what is now a strong, creative enterprise with customers all over the world.
