OUR STORY

When Convergecom was established in 2008, in the family home of Austin Payne, it had just one employee and one client. Today, it has eight staff and has worked with hundreds of small and medium businesses, in many different industries, throughout Australia. But one thing has never changed – Convergecom has always provided simple solutions to complex communications problems. And we’ve got the testimonials to prove it.

OUR TEAM

Again and again, we get two pieces of feedback from our valued clients: we really care and we really know our stuff.

Thank you. That means a lot to us.

So who are the Convergecom team?

AUSTIN PAYNE

Director

During his quarter-century in the telecommunications industry, Austin has learned an important lesson: it doesn’t take any longer to do a job right the first time. Austin brings this mindset to all his customer interactions.

“I like to listen to what a customer’s pain points are, and show them how they can use the phone system they have to not only resolve these pain points but also work more efficiently,” he says.

Austin loves going to work, because Convergecom has such a positive culture and his colleagues are so supportive. “I consider most of them my best friend, and the support I get both at work and outside of it is something I have never had before,” he says.

Austin once represented Australia in touch football… but that doesn’t mean he’s the most talented athlete in his household. “Something I am more proud of was as a family we had four out of five of us win a national championship in the same year each in a sport we love!”

RACHEL PAYNE

General Manager

Rachel, as a co-owner, has been officially with Convergecom since 2010. While most of her colleagues live and breathe phone systems, Rachel can’t get enough of compliance, accounts and HR.

“My job is to motivate and manage my team,” she says. “I am constantly looking for ways to improve our delivery and the customer experience.”

Working with her team is the very thing Rachel most loves about her job. She has a very open, transparent leadership style, because she’s found that’s the best way to create a harmonious, high-performing team.

A fun fact about Rachel is that she’s an eight-time national champion in ‘drill dance’, a sport most people have never heard of. Rachel brings this same mindset to her role. She always strives to be her best, and wants her colleagues to do the same. That said, she also wants everyone to enjoy their work, because a happy team is a motivated team.

JOANNE RYAN

Operations Manager

Joanne has seen it all – she joined the telecommunications industry way back in 1993 and has worked in a wide variety of roles. Joanne prides herself on her customer service.

“I like getting a frustrated client who is really unhappy with their current system or provider and turning them around to loving their telephone system by fixing whatever issues they’re experiencing,” she says.

Joanne manages Convergecom’s technicians – a responsibility she takes very seriously. Joanne works closely with the techs to make sure they’re fully trained, and across all the latest products and processes. Joanne loves the fact that even though Convergecom works with big clients all over Australia, it’s still a family-owned business with values to match.

ROCHELLE MATHESON

Sales Manager

Rochelle has been working in telecommunications since she was 18. So it’s no surprise she loves phone systems.

“I just love how the right phone system makes it easy to connect with colleagues and clients, and also integrate with other business applications,” she says.

The thing Rochelle most cherishes about Convergecom is its values – friendliness, trustworthiness and reliability. Know what else Rochelle loves? Spending time with her rabbits, watching horror movies and reading true crime stories.

HARRY CAWOOD

Senior Technician

Hear that noise? That’s the sound of Harry tinkering with gadgets. When new products come out, Harry plays with them, takes them apart, tries to break them – whatever it takes to master a new piece of technology. Harry has been in telecommunications since 2002 and has been part of Convergecom since 2011. He’s fascinated by the way technology keeps evolving.

“When I started, installs were all about the hardware – the software was basic,” he says. “Now, the software is the main part of the install, which gives customers so many more options with their networking and communications.”

One thing Harry loves about Convergecom is that the company has always been happy for him to work remotely from his home in South Australia.

PHIL HILL

Technician

Phil has got so much telecommunications experience, he actually joined the industry last century. The thing he most loves about technology is how it enhances the human experience.

“I love that phone systems allow people to connect with each other,” he says. “I love making people’s lives easier – I listen to customer requirements and show how they can use their phone system features to improve communication.”

Why does Phil enjoy working at Convergecom? “Even though we all have different skill sets, we work together as a team to provide a professional experience in all of our interactions,” he says.

WORK WITH US
