Building a customer-centric IT organisation to deliver for our business, our customers and our people

It's no secret. The way we communicate, shop and access services has changed. So has the way we do business and what our customers expect from us. And with the rapid growth in digital technology, our customers have been empowered like never before to drive this change.

More than ever, we need to know who our customers are and what they want. We need to understand them and align our business to their needs.

If we want to retain our current customers as well as attract and keep new ones, they need to be the focus of everything we do so that we can adapt our products and services - and the way we deliver them - to fulfill their needs. They must be placed at the centre of everything we do.

We hope you'll join us at our next Women are I.T. lunch to find out how Australia Post has palced their customers at the centre by building a customer-centric IT organisation to deliver for their businesses, their customers and their people.
