Willetton WA – ETCorp’s GPAC System™ picked up two awards in this year’s WAITTA (Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards) at a ceremony held at Burswood. The awards in the Infrastructure and Telecommunications categories recognise the diverse applications of the GPAC System™ in areas including community crime and covert surveillance.

The Infrastructure award was presented to the City of Belmont in recognition of the City’s use of the GPAC System™ to take an innovative approach to the problem of community safety. Collecting the award Mayor of Belmont, Glenys Godfrey, explained the benefits the GPAC System™ has brought to Belmont. “This new infrastructure solution has enabled the City to lead the way in establishing a partnership with local businesses, the community and police; helping all parties to work together to reduce crime. This pioneering approach has already generated real results, saving both time and money.”

ETCorp was also awarded first place in the Telecommunications category for the innovative use of the GPAC System™ in covert surveillance operations to capture footage of theft and vandalism as part of the Housing Industry Association “Name and Shame” campaign.

Martin Cebis, CEO of ETCorp explained the significance of the awards “We are showing that by connecting and putting to work devices for people that IT can tackle society’s problems in and more effective ways. It is fantastic for us and the City of Belmont to be recognised as a leaders by our peers as the WA ITT Awards have done and we are humbled by it.”
