In Australia, a new disability service framework is being implemented and has cultivated a competitive culture amongst disability service providers. The E.W. Tipping Foundation (EWTF), which is one of these disability service care providers, is striving to become a sector leader through the means of improved use of smartphones, laptops and tablets, also known as endpoint technology. The goal of this project was to perform an assessment of the endpoint technology used at EWTF through interviews with employees, clients and stakeholders to determine what devices the foundation needs not only today, but in the future. The assessment lead to a set of recommendations aimed at improving their services to disabled individuals in the state of Victoria through the use of updated endpoint technology.
