We’re familiar with iWest in Goondiwindi…but we may soon see their services a little further afield.
Melissa Yeo caught up with them in Brisbane.
From accessibility to practicality, iWest had it all at the Assistive Solutions Expo earlier this month.
Representing Goondiwindi, iWest is dedicated to servicing outback regions as well as creating technical solutions for those living with disabilities.
Showcasing their services in Brisbane was no mean feat…
“To be chosen to come from a town that has a population of 5000 to represent millions has been quite the honour,” says owner Jason Scott.
“I never expected it to be this big and if you ask a lot of my customers I never wanted it to be this big but this is an identifiable need in this country to have one solution from one company. And I’m glad we were chosen and selected to be this one solution.”
You might know them as the go-to guys for your iPhone or iMac problems but they’re products and services go so much further.
iWest specialises in providing solutions for everything from spinal injuries to parkinsons and aged care.
From their bricks and mortar store on Marshall St, they’ve already built a strong customer base around our region…but now, they’re looking to expand across the state.
“We’re looking at probably going iEast in the next few months,” continues Scott.
“We’re looking at positions to put one in Toowoomba, iWest in Toowoomba, then Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.”
iWest, iEast, iNorth or iSouth…there’s no stopping Jason and the team!
They specialise in an all-encompassing solution that goes right from consultation through installation and servicing.
But they’re not forgetting where they’ve come from.
Attending the expo meant closing the shop on Friday, something Jason hasn’t done in all his years with iWest.
“I just want to thank Goondiwindi for letting us achieve this moment,” he says.
“It’s a very big honour for me and my staff. It’s just one of the best things that we could have come to.”
Jason says it all stems from his 28 years as a firefighter.
“I want to use that experience that I’ve had over the past years as a firefighter not only to bring professional conduct into this environment but to ensure that is deployed in a professional manner that people understand.”
It’s out with the tech talk, and in with the help talk.
Proving once again, that the pragmatism of the country goes a long way.
