WHAT WE DO
New Things Now develops and delivers interactive experiences and promotions along with consultation and training services that make technology work for the Community Services Sector.
Interactive Events and Promotions
New Things Now is outcome directed. You tell us about the outcomes that you’re after, and we custom design interactive events and promotions to create those outcomes.
We aim to provide both overt and covert outcomes.
The overt outcomes relate to the brief we’re given. The covert ones are either those we read between the lines of the brief, or ones we add because we always want the final package to be much more than is expected. We love to do that in new and surprising ways.
This includes helping community organisations utilise well known systems such as social media, while advising and training staff to minimise risks, such as exposing organisation networks to hackers.
But consultation and training services go much further.
New Things Now takes advantage of emerging technologies such as:
- integrated web, mobile and digital signage systems that centralise data collection
- utilising Virtual and Augmented Reality to provide engaging visceral experiences
- using multimedia such as animation, projection and in-game content to create engaging and interactive program content
- gaze tracking for data collection, such as evaluating the actual effectiveness of noticeboards and for undertaking surveys
- using novel technology to enhance engagement and interaction
- and use of open source technology, which provides access to sophisticated systems without software licensing costs
New Things Now caters to a new emerging market in the human services sector – The provision of cost effective contracted outcomes.
With the requirement to demonstrate tangible reportable outcomes, community organisations are actively seeking methods to reach target audiences in a way that not only meets identified need, but is measurable.
New Things Now provides community sector organisations with support in using cutting edge technology in two specific areas – interactive events and promotions, and consultation concerning the use of emerging technologies.
We can help you expand your service provision in cost effective ways that you are probably unaware of!
We are outcome driven and dedicated to helping you navigate the complex world of technology.
Our values are to:
- Embrace and Drive Change
- Create and Innovate
- Do More With Less
- Craft experiences that make a real difference and are measurable
- Show Don’t Tell what is possible
Our Mission is to provide the community services sector with cost effective professional consultation, training, support, programs and promotions that utilise cutting edge technologies.
Our Vision is to extend the organisational and program capacity of community service organisations in cost effective ways that are based on objective outcomes and which are supported by measurable data.
Most people think of computing technology as if it were a typewriter or other type of tool.
In our world nothing could be further from the truth, as a computer is a ‘stateless machine’ … it is nothing until you run code on it.
Once you do, a computer system can transform into a communication device, a guidance system, a multimedia platform, a virtual world or just about anything else you can imagine.
And that is the heart of our passion .. seeing and developing genuine creative innovation that can transform community service provision.
How do I know if New Things Now can really help me?
One of the real challenges with technology is the diversity of approaches and how fast change happens.
Rather than try and explain what may work for you, New Things Now adopts a ‘show don’t tell’ approach to demonstrating actual solutions in your real world settings.
So, if you have an upcoming event, activity or promotion, or really need a unique way to engage and convey a critical message, then let
us know and we will show you what is possible.
What does it cost?
New Things Now has a rates from $60 per hour to supply, manage and support interactive event and promotion activities.
Contact us to discuss your project or training needs and we will develop an obligation free quote.
Until I got to actually experience it, I really had no idea how amazing this technology could be! Just terrific!
Awesome experience, I felt as if I was flying a fighter plane for real, great technology.
I loved the interactive entertainment New Things Now provided for the St Helens Community Services Expo, it was great to see the children up an dancing inside that fancy projected light show.
It is so cool how the Digital Jukebox can take selfies and then play them as part of the projected light show.
Flying that Virtual Reality Raptor jet over Tasmania was amazing..I felt like I was really there inside the cockpit looking around!
